  • Great place to walk in Vancouver, safe and with everything you could possibly want. Fine dining where you can enjoy various delicacies, as your wallet. Don't forget the steam clock, as well as the Museum where you can retreat several years in time, delight in the Indian culture. You can also visit the Chinatown, and its history in the construction of this great city.

  • Vancouver is a very interesting and quite pleasant city as a whole, this also applies to the city centre. Tolerable traffic noise, tasteful shopping Temple, partly also underground, which summer and winter for pleasant temperatures makes. Many small restaurants, a good bus system, and also the pedestrian-friendly streets surrounded by some very remarkable architecture, take a walk to the pleasure.
