Chinatown History Hunt: Clues Galore!

Posted by Vancouver Opera On 11:28 AM


Time to put on your thinking caps! The clues to the Chinatown History Hunt are here!

Using the clues below, figure out the landmarks, go there, get all snap-happy with your camera and send your pictures to lchan@vancouveropera.ca.

You'll then be entered to win an awesome opera package including: 2 tickets to Nixon in China, $150 gift certificate to Floata Seafood Restaurant and admission for 2 to Dr. Sun Yat Sen Chinese Gardens. Doesn't that make you want to get up and go to Chinatown right now?

Here are the super-fantastic clues:

Clue #1: It’s the skinniest building in the world – and the place to go if you need a marriage license.

Clue #2: It’s the first full-size Chinese garden built outside of China and is named in honour of the first president of China.

Clue #3: The 3 ½ storey neon rice bowl may be gone, you can still get some mean sticky rice with chicken here!

Clue #4: This "Assocation" is so "Benevolent" it needs two locations! (But you only have to find one for the History Hunt).

Clue #5: Visit this "Centre"’s museum & archives to get some "Culture"!

Contest ends Friday, February 12!

So make a day of it. Double, triple, quadruple your chances of winning by bringing your pals out with you to participate in our History Hunt. Just make sure that you each submit your own set of photos.

Then everyone, go have a spot of dim sum!

Thanks to Selina Rajani, Communications Manager for coming up with the clues!
