Chinatown is located just south of Hastings Street and is home to one of the largest and historic Chinatowns in North America. Since developing a revitalization plan in 2011, Chinatown has been trending upwards and is experiencing an influx of hip new restaurants, antique stores and shopping along its main streets.
