Explore the vast city of Vancouver
The beautiful Canadian city of Vancouver forms part of the Burrard Peninsula between Burrard Inlet and Fraser River. The city itself is not on Vancouver Island as such but rather the two are in relative distance and share the same name. Besides garnishing a reputation for expensive living, Vancouver is a great place to stop if you are travelling to Canada.
There are an endless variety of things to do in Vancouver. Take a walk through Stanley Park, the third-largest park in North America. Or, enjoy a peaceful evening stroll on Granville Island and enjoy this artistically re-vamped neighbourhood. Nature lovers should be sure not to miss the wildlife refuge or the splendid variety of hiking and mountain biking trails at Grouse Mountain. Or, if you are visiting in winter, you’ll be able to enjoy skiing, snowboarding and sleigh rides. For a more relaxing experience, try the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. The Capilano Suspension Bridge and Park is a mark of human achievement worth visiting while The Lookout at the Harbour Centre Tower offers a fantastic view of the city.
And what would a trip to Vancouver be without some Vancouver shopping? The Granville Public Market and the Punjabi Market are great places to find some bargains. More mainstream shopping can be found in Robson Street, which is also a great place to enjoy a meal at a Vancouver restaurant. The Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre, Science World, the Vancouver Art Gallery, Chinatown and Gastown should also not be missed. Kitsilano Beach is a favourite with sun worshippers.
