Welcome to Vancouver
Vancouver is a picture-perfect city of sophistication, decadence and adventure. If you like to cut z-shapes, the local ski areas are just a 20 minute drive from Downtown, as too are the famous suspension bridges. In fact, wherever you are in this diverse city you’ll be surrounded by stunning mountains just begging to be explored by skis, snowboard or hiking boots. But if you’d prefer a glass of wine, the world-renowned Whistler Blackcomb resort is a 90 minute cruise up the sea-to-sky highway.
Vancouver is much more than a launching pad for wilderness adventures, however. You’ll find exceptional dining options, farmers’ markets and uber-cool cocktail bars. For an enlightening experience, try the Museum of Anthropology and Vancouver Aquarium. Otherwise, mix it up with fashionistas in the hipster neighbourhoods of Kitsilano, Mt Pleasant or Gastown.
When you get peckish, head to the Granville Island Public Markets, South Granville or Chinatown. You’ll find an impressive mixture of top Asian food options, you might just forget what side of the globe you’re actually on. If you fancy a cocktail to wind down - or crank up the evening – hop between the stylish bars in Railtown, Yaletown and Downtown.
And here’s one for the whole family – take a bike ride along Vancouver’s iconic Seawall alongside Stanley Park. You’ll pass shimmering blue waters, beaches and serene harbour views. Then head into the park itself to see first-hand why it was voted the best in the world.
