Canada, the world’s second largest country by land area, is rich in natural resources. The northern Boreal forest is home to a vast and diverse collection of wildlife. Waterfalls, glaciers, prairies, and pristine coastline can all be found in Canada. Toronto, on the shores of Lake Ontario, is the country’s commercial hub. The mighty Niagara Falls draw visitors from around the world. Montreal enchants with its French character and European charm. In Alberta, the resort town of Banff is one of North America’s most dazzling natural wonderlands. Vancouver’s laidback atmosphere has long attracted those seeking a more leisurely pace. And of course, who could forget the untamed wilds in the Canadian Arctic? Canada is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. With culture, sports, and entertainment aplenty, this is a great travel destination.
Located at the center of Vancouver, Stanley Park is an urban green boasting a sequoia forest, a never-ending waterfront causeway, Indian totem poles, and the Vancouver Aquarium. A tapestry of vegetation, the Park offers compelling views and is dubbed a “huge natural oxygen bar”. For locals, this is a perfect place for a rich variety of leisurely outdoor activities, be it walking, cycling, rollerblading or skateboarding. A grassy playing field and waterfront pool can be found at the beach in the Park’s western side, which also serves as an open-air cinema during summer nights. The beach is a perfect spot to watch the sunset and a frequent gathering place for local residents to have barbecues and picnics.

Built in 1911, Casa Roman Castle is a private mansion of the famous financier Sir Henry Pellatt. There are dozens of ornately decorated rooms in the castle, mysterious towers, deep tunnels, large horse stables, and hidden dark passages. An elegant greenhouse, and a beautiful garden built on a hill, the garden is open every summer. The medieval armor on both sides of the corridor, as well as the crackling wooden floor in the old castle, is a time-staggered feeling, as if it were in a giant mansion a hundred years ago.
