You name it it's here. For a quick bite go to Hubbub on Hornby St and grab a pulled pork (3 day marinated and cooked) and jalapeño baguette - it's probably the best sandwich I've had. AIX, Burberry and a host of big name labels and restaurants coming at you fro all sides - try a Japadog, once of the... More

We did a self guided walking tour which included Chinatown, the Japanese Garden, the Steam clock, the port area with the massive cruise ships, and various other items of interest. Easy to get around, very clean, pedestrian friendly, easy to find food and amenities. Glad we took time to see some of the city on our visit.

After over 18 years, we returned on a blistering hot sunny day to spend our wedding anniversary with our three teenage children, walking all around the beaches, marina and central areas to the totem poles and back for lunch. We are told Stanley Park was voted 'No 1 park' worldwide. Not a surprise, it is lovely.

Not very impressed with downtown area or it's shopping and I didn't find it very interesting or clean but they are a lot of different restaurant as it's a diverse city with multi cultural people.

I have never done so much walking in a city as I did here and enjoyed all the sites that were easy to get to and it was also a good workout for those that enjoy exercise to help ware off those added calories.

What an easy city to get around in. Walking to major points of interest is comfortable and quick. And visiting Granville Island or Stanley Park is easily accessible by bus. Or, if you choose the aqua ferries, you can see almost all the points of interest. Gastown is a must see, as it has an old steam clock that whistles... More

Vancouver has great diversity as a city, much to see and do and great restaurants and bars. To get a bird's eye view of it all, head to the Vancouver Lookout atop one of the tallest buildings in the city and walk around to get a 360 degree view of everything the city has to offer. Or, better yet, go... More

We love Vancouver, especially staying on the water. Watching the see planes arrive and take off, big cruise ships come to port, the beautiful mountains across the bay, great food, lots and lots of restaurants to choose from, and happy hours everyday, everywhere!
