Welcome to CBC's Cultural Secrets of Vancouver!

Cultural Secrets of Vancouver is back! We discovered so many interesting and cool people, places and things last year, we had to seek out the latest secrets for 2013.

This year we've decided to focus on South Asian secrets. Gurp Sian, who was on the show last year, is co-hosting with Lien Yeung, and together they've discovered some South Asian designers, artists, chefs, festivals and history you'll want to check out too!

Tune in to watch Cultural Secrets of Vancouver: South Asian on Thursday September 26, at 6:30 pm on CBC Television in British Columbia.
