Nestled between Gastown and the quickly growing Crosstown neighbourhoods, Chinatown is one of the most culturally historic area in Vancouver. Originally settled by Chinese immigrants in 1890, this modestly sized area encompasses East Pender and Keefer Streets, and offers an amazing variety of asian cuisines from traditional Chinese to modern fusion, and everything in-between. Home to frequent festivals and night markets, Chinatown is a popular nighttime destination for both locals and tourists to enjoy. The lively neighbourhood is constantly abuzz and is certainly a common tourist attraction. Gentrification efforts over the past decade have led to some amazing real estate opportunities like the Keefer Suites - a great fit for someone looking for amazing luxurious accommodations, but with just a bit of edge.
