For those of you looking for something to do near the airport in Vancouver, check out the Summer Night Market in Richmond. It is alive with people from 7 pm to 10 pm most nights with food and variety of merchandise that you can purchase – much like the night markets in Thailand, Malaysia, and other Asian countries. Most of the merchandise stalls were selling cell phone accessories, but there are some interesting things to check out. You won’t get prices like in Asia, but it’s a great place to find what you need for your cell phone or tablet if you don’t want to pay the brick and mortar store prices. Big bonus was the free parking! Here’s the link: http://www.summernightmarket.com
We didn’t stay for entertainment, but there is a stage and while we were there, someone was on the stage singing with her guitar all night. The food that we tried were all good – especially the fried squid – line was the longest at Noisy Boy Squid, so we waited about 1/2 an hour to finally receive our plate of squid; it was well worth the wait!
There is also an Asian supermarket nearby with a food court (about 2 to 3 km), so for those of you looking for an indoor experience, the food there is good, too.
For a great dim sum experience, the place to go is Dai Tung Chinese Restaurant on Kingsway (1050 108 Kingsway, Vancouver, BC V5V 3C6)
