A day like any other for a traveller, time to experience this world. I set my mind on renting a bike and exploring Vancouver like a local, taking to the roads and reaching my destinations with ease. Public transport is like no other here, nothing like Australia. It just seems to work & everything is on time. My first stop was Simon's Bike Shop just off Granville which has the cheapest & most reliable bikes for rent in town. $25 a day including your helmet and you are set.
My first stop was Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden's. As I arrived at the garden and locked my bike I was met with a sense of peace & tranquility, a truly unique experience unlike any other garden I have visited. The classical garden is completely hand crafted without the use of modern equipment such as electronic tools, nails or concrete. The garden is based off a Ming Scholars quarters, divided into separate areas each providing a view into how life was lived during the Ming Dynasty.
