Planning Richmond holidays
Located in the Pacific Standard Time Zone (GMT - 8), Richmond enjoys a mild temperate climate. Plan Richmond holidays during the summer (June to August), when you can experience perfect weather as well as Canada Day celebrations and the tall ships festival. Vancouver International Airport is within Richmond city limits, so it's a short ride by taxi or SkyTrain to your accommodation. Once there, Richmond is very easy to get around via car, and it’s also serviced by public transit.
With its unique heritage and idyllic location, Richmond holidays offer a relaxing and refreshing experience. The International Buddhist Temple, the first and largest authentic Chinese Buddhist temple in North America, is the highlight of all Richmond holidays. With its golden ceramic roof tiles, classical oriental garden, lotus ponds, traditional Chinese artwork and the largest Buddhist mural in the world, this serene site is bursting with beauty and colour. Enjoy fresh seafood by the water in Steveston, a historic fishing area boasting peaceful ocean views, harbour activities and barbecue facilities. Families gather for a day out at River Port, a lively entertainment centre housing IMAX movie theatres, bowling, a large swimming pool and an indoor water park. Explore the lively Richmond Night Market, or take a 30-minute trip out to White Rock and its beaches. Finish with a refreshing beverage at Blossom Winery, which produces unique ice wine and fruit wine.
