    Richmond delivers Asian flair on Canada’s west coast

    The 4th largest city in British Columbia, Richmond is perhaps one of the most culturally diverse cities in Canada. Visitors from around the world flock to experience its renowned Asian influences but soon find that the city’s sumptuous waterside setting, intriguing cultural attractions, and vibrant lifestyle are all part of its appeal. No matter whether you crave a smart townhouse with room for the whole family or a cozy cottage for 2 overlooking the Fraser River, a stay in a Richmond vacation rental is the perfect way to experience the city as a local.

    Find your inner calm in Richmond

    Explore the city’s Asian vibe with a visit to the International Buddhist Temple, a classical Chinese temple where highlights include Gracious Hall with its elegant porcelain roof, serene landscaped gardens, and a colorful Buddha mural, which at 100 meters is the longest of its kind in the world. Continue your journey to enlightenment by taking a free class at the Bodhi Meditation Center. Foodie or not, the perfect way to round off your day is with a trip to an authentic eatery in the Golden Village District or the Richmond Night Market where bustling street food stands serve up a variety of mouthwatering Asian cuisines.

    Discover Steveston village in Richmond

    Richmond is a great place to be outdoors and never is this more apparent than in the city’s charming seaside village of Steveston.  Head to the bustling marina to see the fishing boats bobbing up and down in the water and to catch a glimpse of majestic bald eagles soaring in the sky above. An array of boutique stores provides a little retail therapy while Steveston Museum, the family-friendly London Heritage Farm, and National Historic Sites such as the Gulf of Georgia Cannery and the Britannia Shipyards, offer history buffs and culture enthusiasts a fascinating peek into the city’s past.

    Richmond is a 4-season destination

    The city’s mild coastal climate means that a stay in a Richmond vacation rental is an option at any time of year. Summer brings with it sunny days where temperatures during July and August typically soar past 70 degrees and a favorite pastime is enjoying cooling ice cream along the waterfront. Over the winter, snowfall is rare but there’s nothing to stop you tearing up the powdery slopes of the Cypress and Grouse Mountain ski resorts near Vancouver. Both spring and fall are equally pleasant times of year, although cooler mornings and evenings mean that layering up is recommended.

    Enjoy Richmond’s parks, gardens, and beaches

    It’s possible to enjoy ocean and mountain views from many spots in Richmond, but the most appealing vistas can be found at Garry Point Park where clear days serve up views of the Gulf Islands and the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. Before heading back to your Richmond vacation rental, be sure to explore the Japanese-style Kuno Garden and watch the spectacular sunset from the park’s driftwood-strewn beach. If you’d rather be out on the water, boat cruises from Steveston are a wonderful way to spot migrating wildlife such as orcas, humpback whales, and Californian sea lions.
