We had always heard so much about Vancouver but you can't believe everything until you actually see it. What a beautiful city filled with wonderful people and great food and entertainment. We would visit Vancouver again and again.

Fantastic architecture, a very nice walk. You can spend hours on waterfront, walk by, have a nice lunch or dinner in many resturants around. Great sushi and the local japandog!

Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is
