You may not like Yaletown so much but Gasoline Town is much more condusive to dancing and eating out. Yaletown had allot of homeless people sleeping right straight on the street and many mentally ill and people high on drugs.

Make sure to stop by Robson Street, Gastown & Chinatown (during the day time is the safest) and Stanley Park.

We were not impressed with Vancouver. Homeless people camped out on all the sidewalks, with all their belongings. Panhandling all over. The smell of marijuana permeating the air. People drinking alcoholic bevages on the streets. Drug deals being made right out in the open. Not many police around to stop any of this. I never felt afraid, just not a place where I wanted to spend my vacation or my money.

we used the Hop on Hop off tours bus to get us around the city and was able to see quite a bit. the weather cooperated. we were in gas town, cool area to walk about. we tried a few different restaurants and enjoyed each one. short walk to transportation. or taxis Vancouver is a great city to visit but be aware of the price for food... it was higher than any other city..

It is a busy place with lots of traffic. But the people are lovely in Vancouver and is definitely a good place to visit if you like seeing different cities like me! There's lots of shopping and eateries, could easily spend the whole day just walking around.
