  • Inner Harbor is full of great shops, restaurants and sightseeing, which are all within walking distance.  more »
  • The so-called "Inner Harbour" is certainly a must. It a skin not just of the stool, but nice to watch. The Parliament building is illuminated in the evening. The way is like that I find personally corny. Since the hotel is Fairmont Empress"effectively illuminated. It is interesting also with the small water taxis for example according to drive "fisherman BB´s wharf" and the take-offs and landings of aircraft water is also extraordinary for us.
