About Vancouver

Visiting Vancouver in early autumn can be a lovely experience. The summer travelers have already headed back home and temperatures have dropped but the city has yet to go into hibernation and has a lot to offer.



Have a look at this video to discover why Vancouver is a must visit place and below are some examples of what you can enjoy in our beautiful city.



ABORIGINAL TOURISM

Aboriginal Vancouver - Immerse yourself in the living traditions of British Columbia’s Aboriginal peoples, and experience authentic music and dance, food, arts, stories, and fascinating cultural artifacts.



CAPILANO SUSPENSION BRIDGE

Capilano Suspension Bridge is a Vancouver landmark since 1889. Visitors and locals alike have flocked to this famous swinging bridge across Capilano Canyon which is one of Canada's most popular attractions.



CHINATOWN

Chinatown in Vancouver is Canada's largest Chinatown. Chinatown has been humming busily for more than a century with vivid colours, exotic cuisine and a vibrant culture.



GRANVILLE ISLAND

No trip to Vancouver is complete without a visit  to Granville Island and its Public Market, arguably the epicentre for Vancouver's culinary enthusiasm. Despite being home to 300 businesses, studios and facilities, the destination still retains an old-fashioned, timeless feeling. Craftsmen and artists take up residence here, and it's clear that the tradition of apprenticeship and mastery is alive and well.



GROUSE MOUNTAIN

Grouse Mountain is the pre-eminent all-in-one, four season destination with something for everyone.  The wilderness paradise is located 15-minutes from downtown.



STANLEY PARK

Stanley Park is Vancouver's urban oasis and one of the top city parks in North America.  It is one of the city's main tourist attractions and is ideally situated on a peninsula at the northwestern edge of downtown.                                                                                                     



VANCOUVER AQUARIUM

With a worldwide reputation as a leading marine science centre, the Vancouver Aquarium was the country’s first public aquarium when it opened in 1956, and is Canada’s largest. It is home to more than 70,000 animals, more than 60,000 children take advantage of its school programs each year, and each year it welcomes more than 1 million visitors from around the world. The numbers are impressive, but it’s the actual wildlife — the whales, otters, snakes, dolphins and more — that amaze the hundreds of thousands who pass through the door of the aquarium each year, which is situated in the middle of Stanley Park just on the outskirts of downtown Vancouver.
