There’s a lot to love about Vancouver. A cosmopolitan city sandwiched between snow-capped mountains and sandy beaches, this city has it all. A cutting edge food scene mingles with the traditional tea shops of Chinatown, independent galleries sit alongside grand museums, glass skyscrapers watch over the historic streets of Gastown, and the city’s workers go from forest to office in one day.
Not content with having it all, Vancouver takes the prize for innovative ways to enjoy its sites. Take a boat trip on the Strait of Georgia to spot whales, soar over the city and land on glacial mountain lakes, partake in a formal Chinese tea ceremony, cycle along the Stanley Park seawall, and hike the forest trails.
