Cheapie Thursday – Richmond Buddhist Temple

Buddhist Temple
FREE – 9am – 5pm
9160 Steveston Hwy

This temple has been around for numerous years and is a very common tourist attraction just off of Highway 99 on Steveston Highway in Richmond. They’re open to the public year round and is home to one of Richmond’s most beautiful gardens. In fact it’s been first place for 10 years straight in the Richmond garden and landscape contest.

The complex is huge with much to walk through and much to see. They have numerous buildings which have been constructed over the years and nearly every day there are activities and ceremonies to witness.

The admission is free and if you get tired and weary from walking around they serve vegetarian dishes between 11:30am and 3:30pm at the Gracious Hall.

    Tim, thanks for this. The whole Cheap for a Week series has been brilliant. My rep as the cheapest metblogger has been utterly usurped.

    Keep your eyes out, I hope to dig deeper for some more cheapness :)

    Yes, keep the cheapies coming! We don’t arrive in Canada for a couple more weeks yet, and looking forward to taking advantage of all your cheaply goodness.
