Filming in Chinatown

Vancouver's Chinatown, the second largest in North America, offers a wonderful array of authentic-looking locations. There are still many areas in Chinatown where all the fascination and colour of the old way of life remain intact. The narrow roads and back lanes, vibrant with all sorts of activities, are filled with unique sounds and smells.

The neighbourhoods surrounding the core of Chinatown, with some unique-looking corner stores, are also worth exploring.

Dr. Sun Yat Sen Garden

Dr. Sun Yat Sen Garden – the first full-sized classical Chinese garden ever built outside China, is an oasis of peace and tranquility – a great location for your ancient Chinese shots!

To film inside Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden, please contact the Garden's Administration Department at 604-662-3207.
