Sisters are in town and I had to play tour guide. We did the usual things that the guide books recommended but I noticed that there was so much more to Vancouver that is being missed in those pages! For example the Richmond Night Market! Its open Fri, Sat & Sun until midnight, a great place to go in the evenings. Be sure to save room for lots of street food and don’t forget to pick up some great knock off sunglasses!
Sounds like fun!!! Can’t wait to get started!
