It’s easy to see why Vancouver is a timeless mainstay on the Canada’s tourist trail. It’s easy to dive right into the neighbourhoods of the city and to get involved with the culture and cuisine. The best parts of the city are all on display, especially when it comes to nature.

You can hit the powder on the mountain slopes just outside Vancouver with just a 30 minute drive, or you can partake in a spot of mountain biking, sea kayaking, or hiking. But you needn’t even leave the city to immerse yourself in natural beauty. Vancouver’s pride and joy of Stanley Park is ripe for the picking for a day of cycling or strolling through beautiful green spaces. If you’re visiting during summer time you cannot miss a beach day at the buzzing Kitsilano Beach.

The culinary scene in Vancouver is up there with the best in the whole country. You can find authentic versions of any cuisine but also creative fusions of all of Vancouver’s influences. Chinatown’s Night Market is a must-visit for some top-notch Asian meals. Beer lovers will rejoice in Vancouver’s recent craft beer renaissance, with so many new local breweries to sample the wares of.
