MilesChenReally a once in a lifetime train experience. In September 2019, the weather in Canada is very suitable, and it is wonderful to experience the dyed mountains by train. The trains on the Vancouver train station, before the departure of the train company held a grand ceremony, which is a surprise to me, not only the train service personnel introduced the scenery along the way, but also the experience of food. Sitting on the train watching the scenery of the Rockies and eating Michelin meals, it's really unspeakable. The ticket price is really not cheap, it's still a bit hesitant before booking, but after the experience it's worth the money. Also, I felt that it would be boring on the train before I left. I didn't expect there were many activities. I couldn't stop taking pictures at all. Especially the glass dome was like watching an IMAX blockbuster. It was a wonderful day. The queen's favorite train is truly well known, and made me and my wife feel very honorable...
D33***81Trip.com offered a flight price more favourable than directly book from airline company. This brought me from HK to Vancouver and finally to the beautiful city, Victoria by taking cruise bus. A lovely and peaceful city in a developed country.
Rachel PattersonThis is a fantastic aquarium! Be sure to check out the marine mammal shows; they are free and very educational as well as entertaining. Great exhibits on jellyfish and frogs. Really wonderful.
E38***43Canada Place was a fun place to visit. There were so many things to see and do. We were lucky to be there during an anime cosplay expo. We're able to interact with cosplayers and ask them for a photo. It's definitely worth visiting!

Granville Island is a peninsula and shopping district in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is located across False Creek from Downtown Vancouver under the south end of the Granville Street Bridge.

The Capilano Suspension Bridge is a simple suspension bridge crossing the Capilano River in the District of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The current bridge is 140 metres long and 70 metres above the river. It is part of a private facility with an admission fee, and draws over 1.2 million visitors per year. The bridge was originally built in 1889 by George Grant Mackay, a Scottish civil engineer and park commissioner for Vancouver. It was originally made of hemp ropes with a deck of cedar planks, and was replaced with a wire cable bridge in 1903. In 1910 Edward Mahon purchased the Capilano Suspension Bridge. "Mac" MacEachran purchased the Bridge from Mahon in 1935 and invited local natives to place their totem poles in the park, adding a native theme. In 1945, he sold the bridge to Henri Aubeneau.

The Bass Pro Shop in Tsawwassen is simply put the most mind blowing "shop" i have ever experienced. I put shop in quotations because this place is arguably also a museum, art exhibition, Icon, and more. Upon walking through the main entrance you are greeted by the most incredible scene, Hanging above your head is a wooden beam with multiple stuffed stag heads, behind which is the main corridor. This corridor is affixed along its sides with hundreds of stuffed animals, along with recreations of their natural habitats and natural paintings. Walking to the end of this corridor you can find a huge aquarium loaded with large fish.
However this shop has more to offer than decor, it has just about the most complete outside gear inventory you could imagine, if you can picture using it in an outdoor setting, you can buy it here. From boots to tools to tents to vehicles to crossbows to coyote urine, its on sale here. They also have a selection of local snacks, hot sauces, clothing, souvenirs, furniture and hunting licenses.
If you consider yourself an outdoors person, you need to get down here, this is the place for you.
If you’re in search of a mall for everything, search no more. Metropolis at Metrotown is British Columbia’s largest mall. With over 450 stores to choose from across three city blocks, you’ll be spoilt for choice. If shopping is not your thing, you can pamper yourself at one of the spas or salons, or catch a movie at the theatre. I would highly recommend Metropolis at Metrotown, Burnaby to locals and tourists alike! It’s a great place to spend the day with family and friends, or even shopping alone! ☺️
Even by North American standards, Vancouver is a young city. But what it lacks in history it compensates for in scenery. Surrounded by mountains and beaches, Vancouver is both an urban and a natural playground: Its chic atmosphere, high-fashion boutiques and fondness for health-conscious eating have earned it the nickname "Hollywood North." Sitting nearly 1,300 miles north of its nickname namesake, Vancouver and its breathtaking backdrop has been the setting for a bevy of popular television shows and major motion pictures, so don't be surprised if you recognize landmarks from your favorite scenes or stumble upon a production in progress.
But this mitten-shaped city on Canada's western edge draws in more than pop culture junkies. Hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, whitewater rafting and skiing will beckon to your adventurous side (and are especially accessible on one of the best Vancouver tours). Looking for a little rest and relaxation? Try lounging along the 11 miles of beaches or in one of the numerous parks. During the cold weather, you can duck inside one of the top-notch museums or swing your kids by one of the family-friendly attractions, like Granville Island or the Capilano Suspension Bridge. When you add excellent shopping, dining and nightlife scenes to the mix, you'll see why many praise Vancouver as a go-to getaway for the multifaceted traveler.
