Experience Vancouver’s Chinese Garden, Botanical Garden, and More
This private garden tour starts with a pick-up at your hotel. Our first stop is the beautiful Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver’s Chinatown. This garden offers a different perspective on what a garden should be, and it must be seen to be understood. We also do a little walk around Chinatown to see such novelties as the World’s Narrowest Building and Chinese spice and medicine shops.
Leaving the downtown area, we then travel to the highest point in the city, the spectacular Queen Elizabeth Park, and take in its sunken gardens and sweeping panoramic views of Vancouver, the mountains, and the sea. Originally a rock quarry for the early development of downtown, it is now a spectacular garden and view point.
Finally, we enjoy the breathtaking Van Dusen Botanical Garden and its amazing array of what nature has to offer. This mature 22-hectare (55-acre) garden features displays of plants in picturesque landscape settings. Specific garden areas are planted to illustrate botanical relationships, such as the Rhododendron Walk, or geographical origins, like the Sino Himalayan Garden. These areas are set amidst rolling lawns, tranquil lakes, and dramatic rock work with vistas of the mountains and Vancouver cityscape.
