A favorite place to visit in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. It is a peaceful location in the middle of a busy city. The population of Vancouver has grown a lot since my last visit 12 years ago, so the classical Chinese garden offers a restful break. (Stanley Park is also a good option.)
The city of Surrey is about 21 miles (35 kilometers) south of Vancouver. It is part of the metro Vancouver area. Arts and culture are embraced in Surrey. The architectural design of several businesses and houses is contemporary. The exterior of the City of Surrey building is San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital on the television series The Good Doctor. (Some scenes have been filmed inside the building.)
West Vancouver is a beautiful city located about five miles (eight kilometers) northwest of Vancouver. It is an affluent community and Lighthouse Park has attractive walking trails.
