About This Attraction

Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden

A joint effort between the Chinese and Canadian Governments, the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden was first unveiled during the 1986 World Expo, and consists of a public park as well as the classical gardens themselves. Located in the heart of Vancouver’s Chinatown, the structures of the gardens are based on the Chinese principals of Feng Shui and Taoism, striving to achieve harmony and balance of opposites, and offer a tranquil garden oasis in stark contrast to the bustling streets around.

Explore At Your Own Pace

Hop-On With Us


If you prefer to move at your own pace we have you covered. Our Hop-On our Hop-on, Hop-off PARK and CITY Routes both stop in Chinatown, a block from the gardens. Hop-Off at Stop C13/P20. It's your adventure, on your time.

Variety is the spice of life, so for each of our Hop-on Hop-off tours we dish it up and you get to choose. We operate two types of vehicles, and while both buses travel the same routes, each offers a very different tour experience. Of course, we suggest you take the time to enjoy both, but we won't make you. Channelling the spirit of San Francisco, our Trolley's will have you ready for a jolly time. The driver will provide you with live commentary of your tour, lending a local's authentic take on the magic that makes Vancouver great. But as fun as our trolley tours are, our clear-top buses are equally special. Your view of the city will be like no other as you tour the streets with the wind in your hair, experiencing our vibrant downtown with all of your senses. You will be accompanied by a recorded commentary that is available in multiple languages.
