Days required for Vancouver?


I will be visiting Canada for the first time. Please let me know how many days do i need to allocate to Vancouver so that I am able to cover the local sights like:

1. Capilana Suspension Bridge

2. Stanley Park

3. Burnaby Village Museum

<b>Do let me know if I have missed out something <b>

Also, I have kept one day for Victoria (day trip).

Can I cover Whistler in a day trip or shall i go from Vancouver to Whistler and then Kamloops while on my way to Jasper??

Vancouver, Canada

Hi amikmk,

3 days in Vancouver to cover the major sites is ideal in my opinion but for the three sites you mentioned could be jammed into 1 day or better in 2 days. What month or season were you considering for your visit?

Victoria and Whistler are better for 2 days as it does involve some travel time.

If you are going to Capilano, consider also stopping by Grouse Mountain, only a few minutes from there.


I would suggest visiting Downtown Vancouver, Robson Street (Shopping District) when you before or after your Stanley Park visit as it is nearby.

I would probably skip Burnaby Village for Granville Island instead.
