AOL Travel Editor’s Review

A quiet, walled retreat built of paved paths, artfully shaped trees and shrubs, burbling water and still ponds, meditation rooms and evocative archways, the first classical Chinese garden in North America was built by craftsmen from China in 1985 in the heart of Chinatown. It’s a remarkably serene retreat in the middle of the city; alas, the surrounding neighborhood is in decline, and Vancouver’s East End drug trade is just a few blocks away. It’s safe for visitors here, and on East Pender, Chinatown’s main street, but wandering north to Hastings Street is not advisable.
