When we were visiting and being tourists around Vancouver we couldn’t resist visiting Chinatown and Dr. Sun Yat-Sen’s Classical Chinese Garden.

Upon entering Chinatown you first cross under a beautifully ornate gate.

I took so many photos here!! The colors, the “zen” scenes and just the beauty of the gardens was so inspiring.

The garden is so close to downtown, but you feel like you’re in another world.

Even on the overcast day we visited…the garden was still enchanting.
