Jane's Walk YYC 2016: Chinatown Tour

Chinatown is a small reflection of China embedded in brilliant culture and exuberant history. We have murals that are painted to fight the graffiti in Chinatown, and in turn shares stories of how the Chinese started its roots in Calgary. Our passionate volunteers will introduce Chinatown history and development.

 

The 100-year old Canton building, “Dinning block” that serves tons of amazing traditional Chinese food, The Chinese Cultural Centre that holds lots of great Chinese events, Sien Lok Park that is always promoting Chinese language, philosophies and culture, and The Dragon City Mall that runs different business related to Chinese culture.

 

These are all fantastic places you don’t want to miss! We are going to end our walk by writing Chinese calligraphy. Want to have your first piece of Chinese writing or Chinese knotting? Then join us for our 2016 Chinatown tour!
