Scenic, laid-back and overlooking the ocean, it’s hard to beat Vancouver views.

Savour the best Asian cuisine in North America, gawk at downtown's glass towers or take on rainforest trails right in the city. Vancouver is an urban oasis on nature's doorstep.

VANCOUVER TRAVEL GUIDE
LanguagesOfficially English and French
What to eatPacific salmon, seafood, Nanaimo bars and the best Asian cuisine in Canada. Foodie hubs in the city include Gastown, Chinatown, the West End, Kitsilano and Richmond.
What to bring backFirst Nations arts and crafts (learn all about them at the UBC Museum of Anthropology or the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre!), authentic imports from the city’s Chinatown and foodie finds from the Granville Island Public Market.
Fun FactEven though the city is named after him, British officer and explorer Captain George Vancouver supposedly only spent a day here. In 1792, he stopped in during an exploration of the Pacific coast and met with the Spanish captains who were occupying the city at the time. We definitely recommend a longer stay…
