Between ocean and mountain, this western Canadian city enjoys an exceptional location. It offers varied natural landscapes and allows you to practice a multitude of activities. Whether you are there in winter, summer or spring, you will always find something to do in Vancouver.
To start discovering Vancouver and soak up the atmosphere that reigns there, nothing beats a little tour of the city center (downtown). It is here that you can admire the skyscrapers and find yourself in the heart of the bustle of the city.
We particularly recommend the following 2 districts:
Gastown is Vancouver’s historic district if you want to see some of the city’s most beautiful Victorian buildings. You can take a photo stop in front of the “Steam Clock”, a steam clock whistling every ¼ hour. The area is very nice with many cafes and restaurants on the terrace, perfect if you are hungry.
Yaletown, the trendy and cool neighborhood
Former warehouse district, they have been renovated to house lots of small shops and many of the best restaurants in Vancouver. The nightlife is very developed, the ideal place to party in Vancouver.
Each big city has its green lung: Montreal and Mont-Royal Park, New York and Central Park.
In Vancouver, Stanley Park is where you can stroll and enjoy the greenery. This huge 400 hectare park is a must in the city for a nice stroll along the water. It offers beautiful panoramas of the whole city and the coast.
The place is also very popular with joggers or cyclists. We also advise you to rent a bike if you want to tour the park, it’s still the best way to explore it. You will just have to follow the Seawall promenade which goes around it for 9km.
Shopping in Vancouver
During your trip to Vancouver, you will certainly want to do some shopping or shopping, to speak Canadian.
You’ll find what you’re looking for along Robson Street, the commercial artery of downtown Vancouver. All the major brands are represented but you will also find small, cool and original shops and souvenir shops. You will be spoiled for choice.
Farther from the city center, you can also go to Métrotown, Canada’s 3rd largest shopping center or to the Park Royal Shopping Center, located in a pleasant setting by the ocean.
How many days to visit Vancouver?
We recommend that you spend at least 3 days visiting Vancouver, especially if you also want to explore the surrounding areas such as the Capilano bridge or Grouse mountain. And if you really want to enjoy the city and the region, 5 days are not too many.
