Description: Yaletown is Vancouver’s trendy and upscale renovated warehouse district...
Yaletown is Vancouver’s trendy and upscale renovated warehouse district. This fresh urban neighbourhood is just an easy walk from the centre of downtown Vancouver or a quick ferry ride from Granville Island. Yaletown’s converted heritage buildings are home to some of city’s top fashion and design shops, as well as cutting edge restaurants and bars. Old loading docks act as giant sidewalks and create a unique setting for wandering, shopping, or lounging at one of the many outdoor patios.

Made for a uneventful daytime walk of two streets. there were a few shops, yoga, hairdressers, convenience stores but not much of a destination when we visited. Agree with person who said Gastown more interesting. I can imagine it being ok for meals and a few drinks at night though, or would've rated it lower!

Yaletown isn't about the views it's about the vibe, restaurants and bars. On our visit we went to Yaletown on 2 occasions and weren't disappointed. We tried something different each time and the food was excellent and service was up to scratch bearing in mind on one of the visits it was a Saturday night and we didn't have a... More

I expected a trendy area with lots of interesting shops and cafe's but was disappointed. It seems like a very nice residential area, but not very interesting for tourists.

I just happened to pass by Yaletown and there are a lot of restaurants and bars there, they look a bit expensive to me. But if you are after some fancy meals, do check them out.

Stores are nice to visit, but some are extremely expensive! I like the ambiance, restaurants and pubs. Good place to go to buy souvenirs.

Yaletown is a fantastic trendy area in Vancouver. I'm so sold on Canada and the people were wonderful. Many cool restaurants, bars and shopping. I would definitely stay in this area again. GO HERE!

Lots of shops. Just average. Spent much of the day there at a little coffee shop. Very cute place, but I could have skipped it. I enjoyed Gastown much more.
