One of the nicest cities I've been to with everything you can think of in one place: lots of restaurants of all cuisines and budget, libraries and architectural places to see, shops. This was a great place to visit and remains one of my favorite cities.

Vancouver is a fun town and lots to see. Shopping & bars and sites galore. The downtown area near the waterfront is extremely nice. Don't miss the Steam Clock near Canada Place.

Wish I had more time here but the quick bus tour I did get makes me want to go back. Full of history and the geological aspects are just as interesting. My time there was too short.

There is not much else to do but eat and shop. It is clean and the locals are friendly. Can't comment on the public transport because we tend to use the hire car a lot.

Downtown Vancouver is beautiful! There is a lot to do! You can walk around the bay! There are many great restaurants in the area! Sushi is very good! And very under price! Many people rent bike! It is a very pet friendly area as well!

Huge variety of international cuisine, and hotels from budget to high end. The most bustling 3 streets are Robson, Denman - which is closest to the beach area and Davie. Grab a bite to eat on Denman and then you can walk on the beach at English Bay and enjoy a marvelous sunset right in front of you with the... More

We visited shops, gift shops, cafe's restaurants, Canada Place where the cruise ships berth, Gastown and China town. Where ever we went people and shops staff were always very helpful, polite and had... More
