Exploring cities as a local

Best travel experiences

Having coffee outside an independent coffee shop, in an area devoid of tourists, and watching the locals do their thing. This trick works in any city. Don't be afraid to chat up the table beside you. It's expected behaviour.

      • hungrySLIF's Richmond Day
        Lido Restaurant 麗都餐廳 • Iona Beach Regional Park • Steveston Village • Sea Harbour Seafood Restaurant • Steveston Village • L'Opera • Aberdeen Centre 時代坊 • Yaohan Centre 八佰伴中心 • MoMa Contemporary Bistro Restaurant • Richmond Night market • I would stay at: The Hotel at the River Rock
      • One of the finest hotels in Richmond, and located within throwing distance of the airport! Sure there's a casino located inside, but I assure you - you'll be sheltered from most of that hustle and bustle... unless you like it - then get down there and party the night away!

        Ask for a room with a northwest view - you're gonna want to see the sunset. It is supernaturally beautiful. Enjoy the spa and huge pool, and take in a show at the theatre - everything is within your reach. Plus, the Canada Line train stops outside the door!

      • Whew. All Asian'd out? Don't worry - I've got you covered.

        Put on your finest (or you know... pants... dress code is fairly casual in Vancouver) and choose your mode of transport (cab or train). If you bought a day or weekpass, hit up the train. If not, the cab will you there in quick succession.

        Head to the YVR Airport. That's right. The airport.

        You're about to have dinner at one of the most gorgeous rooms in Richmond. Enjoy the prix fixe, or let the waiter decide for you. You've had a busy day - take this opportunity to relax and let someone else take care of you.
