When I was in Vancouver last June for TBEX I ended up spending some time at the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Chinese Garden. This is a classical Chinese garden, and a place I’d wanted visit in Vancouver since I found out about it a few years ago.
Of course I didn’t really visit the Garden under the most ideal situation. I ended up not feeling well on the last day of the conference. Instead of taking the bus or calling a cab to go back to my hostel I decided to hope on the Vancouver Trolley, because TBEX attendants had been given a Vancouver attraction pass. My reasoning was that it stopped by Davie Street, which would theoretically be a few blocks from my hostel. When I noticed that the trolley stopped at the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden I decided to stay on and spend some time there. I remember reading that they had green tea at the garden. Green tea would make me feel better, right? I spent about an hour or so wandering around the garden, and if I had been feeling better I probably would have spent a lot more time there. Here are a few pictures that I took.
The Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden is located at 578 Carrall Street in Vancouver, British Columbia. Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, $9 for students and free for kids under 5. Hours vary from 10am to 4:30pm in winter, 10am to 6pm in spring and fall, and 9:30am to 7pm during the summer.
Even though I was given free admission to the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden all opinions are my own.
