  • Metrotown as all of us locals call it has changed A LOT over the years. When I was young, it was a simple interior mall with shops, grocery and a cinema. It still has those, except the original cinema...  more »
  • I only go to Metrotown when I need to. It is too busy with too many people who just treat it as a large social centre. I do not find much variety and quality in many of the shops. There are not very m...  more »

  • Incredible mall with a hue amount of variety in stores and food options. Very large mall that may be easy to get lost in if you don’t know where you’re going. Always clean and well kept with janitors always going around maintaining throughout the day. Had almost everything you could want aside from a few high-high-end boutiques. Beautiful fountains and art throughout the mall with a nice modern style to it. Will continue to return over and over again!
  • I come here at least once every time I travel to Vancouver. All my visits were never a dissappointment. Includes many stores that will spark your curiosity. A decent food court with a good variety of foods to offer and exceptional parking capacity (best if you go underground, can be a little tricky finding a spot at ground level) If you seek limitless entertainment or a place to hangout and chill with friends/family this is a location to consider experiencing.
  • It's a mall. There's nothing overly remarkable about it, besides the fact that it's huge. It doesn't have an amusement park like the West Edmonton Mall, it's not in the middle of the downtown of a big city like Pacific Centre or the Eaton Center in Toronto. It's a mall, in the burbs. It does have a good selection of mall stuff, like groceries and clothing stores and a big food court. Access is pretty okay, Skytrain and bus connections, lots of parking. Whatever else, you definitely can't fault it for taking being a mall very seriously.
  • Edit: Nov 2017 - Metrotown is a great and safe place to bring your child(ren) for entertainment and shopping. ===================== Although I do come here from time to time, I would put this low on the list of things you can do while visiting Vancouver. It's not that I don't appreciate this mall, because it's our biggest, best all around mall with theatre, several food courts, ample free covered and open air parking, etc etc... But it's going to take up a whole day of your trip unless you're the type who marches through a shopping centre without stopping. Mind you, if you are interested in shopping, don't prefer the natural scenery and outdoor activities that are abundant in Vancouver, then you'll want to spend a day here. I'll change my score to a 4. It's a well managed mall and so if this is how you prefer to spend your time, and I'm Asian so I know how consumerism is part of our way of life - then come to this mall if it's on your travel route. Otherwise, I would recommend shopping downtown at the open air storefronts. There are a few indoor malls available for your climate controlled convenience downtown as well.
  • We used Groupon therefore the visit was only $50 each (vs advertising of $600). The ladies are very nice. The sauna part gets up to 180°F which for me after about 175°F was uncomfortable. Interesting experience to try but I don't think I would go again. I had to do the cool sculpting on my tummy because the spa would only do one thigh otherwise. If you want to try something new with no expectations just for fun, it was neat.
