“City of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2007

Vancouver, Canada is a beautiful city. We were there in August and the weather was great. Two sights that are a "must see" are Standley Park and the Capilano Suspension Bridge. A drive along the coastline provides great views.

“Wonderful City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2007

Love Love Love Vancouver. I didn't expect to like it this much. We wanted to do something different than go to a resort in the Carribean or Mexico. So despite facing some rainy days, we came to this incredibly beautiful and friendly city.

The people of Vancouver are so polite and culturally diverse. Tourism is a big industry here so visitors from all around the world do very well here. My partner and I were well received here in Vancouver as well as Victoria (on Vancouver Island).

“Takes some time to get to know”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2007

Unlike many large cities around the world, Vancouver has no must see museum, or manmade structure, or tallest anything. Rather the whole city is one giant example of Mother Nature and humans coexisting peaceably with one another. You won't love Vancouver unless you've stayed there for awhile in one of its many cool, quirky neighborhoods and sampled the flavors they have to offer. Each neighborhood has its own unique set of stores, yummy restaurants, green parks, and lots of outdoor activities to enjoy.

“Van Couver a Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2007

This is a wonderland.....beautiful snow covered mountain tops, everything is SO green there....lovely vibrant colored flowers, forrests, huge trees....beautiful mountain streams and waterfalls.
The food is excellent...a big variety of Resturants...all indiviually different in the most extreme way. The city itself is so exciting...people so friendly, shops everywhere...farmers markets so to speak....then on to Van Couver Island..where you'll take a ferry...with the whale swimming along side. On the Island itself...find little shops of art, bakeries....fish markets...etc. The coast is beautiful...with grass growing right down to the sand at the beaches...Rocky cliffs, wonderful pink sand! This is a must see!!!

“I Love Vancouver!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2007

I love Vancouver, British Columbia! It is my favourite place to visit. Between Stanley Park, the Aquarium, Granville Island, the Botanical garden, the beaches and the amazing people I love it! There is such a diverse, rich cultural in this city and the land is amazing! I love going to Vancouver by train in the dead of winter and walking down a street in the rain, finding a little mom & pop store selling a huge variety of flowers. Or going to Stanley Park and seeing the hydrangea in bloom – every colour you could imagine and the flower heads are larger than the biggest dinner plate you could find! Then there is Granville Island!! I could happily live here and never have to leave. This is an adventure in itself. There is so much beautiful fresh produce and the smells of the ocean mix with the produce and flowers – it is an experience you want to have at least once in your life. Every time I go to Vancouver I experience something new, fresh and exciting! Go – you won’t regret it! P.S. we have stayed in the fancier hotels and what would be considered skids - the skid hotel was really nice and clean. The staff was awesome and helpful. Lots of space in the room. The fancier hotel was clean and the staffs nice but the rooms for all of their ‘beauty’ were small. If you had a large suitcase you would have problems moving it around the room, and the view of the naked guy sleeping in his hotel room just down 2 floors from my room was the highlight of that hotel. Sometimes the best places to stay are a little out of your way.
