- West Han Dynasty Bell – is located in Shanghai Alley, and displays a monument that was given as a gift from the city of Guangzhou, China, memorializing Chinese history within Vancouver.
- Sam Kee Building – The World’s Narrowest Building is a tight squeeze found at #8 West Pender St. Recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as “The World’s Narrowest Building”, this structure spans barely an arms-width apart at only 6 feet wide, and is a local treasure worth exploring.
