Richmond is an island city nestled in a valley in British Columbia, Canada. It is known for having the largest percentage of immigrant residents, and lowest crime rates, in all of Canada. This makes it a unique place to visit and great shopping destination. Visitors are also spoiled for choice of authentic regional Asian foods.

Richmond, BC, is about 15 minutes from Vancouver. Rent in Richmond is a lot cheaper than in Vancouver. It’s a diverse and beautiful city. The people are very friendly and helpful. I love living in Richmond. I recommend it to anyone looking for an amazing place.
