“Christmas Fair”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Downtown Vancouver during the Christmas season is an experience unto itself. The hustle and polite bustle of shoppers looking for the best gift, and temperate climate make the experience fun.

“GO EXPLORE DOWNTOWN VANCOUVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

All kinds of things to see and do. Great public transportation that starts at the airport to downtown (light rail). Only $2.25. A taxi would have been $40.00 + tip.

“What else can be said about Vancouver?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

I think it's all covered in the tourist brochures... I like the "atmosphere" best, very "big city" ... I grew up in Vancouver, we always went downtown for everything.. the changes of the years have been a good improvement.

“Clean, friendly, and lots to do.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Every type of shop you want from Coach to bargain shops. Get to Robson Street and spend an few hours shopping and visiting restaurants. Get to Davies street for cheaper eats and more variety of foods. Bus system to excellent all taxis are small and energy efficient. People are friendly. Even the few panhandlers are polite! Get to Canada Place for more sites and do not miss a trip to Stanley park.

“amazing city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

really glad we had a stop over in vancouver to see most of the sights. there is alot to take in. the views are really to die for and i understand why people who visit could actually end up staying. everything is so unique and lots of different glass building. i would recommend taking the time out to see this wonderful city.
