Surrounded by majestic snow-capped mountains and silvery bodies of water, the wild still practically surrounds this modern city whose greater area is home to 2 million people. Vancouver is the gateway to Canada’s Province of British Columbia (BC), the Canadian Rockies, Alaska and the Pacific Rim.
A very young city since Captain George Vancouver first sailed through the first Narrows of Vancouver’s splendid Harbor on June 13, 1792, this city has slowly grown from a coastal wilderness dotted with Native Indian villages into one of the world’s most beautiful cosmopolitan cities. The city offers breathtaking scenes you must experience to believe. You will always remember Vancouver for its seemingly magical surroundings and its Asian accented West coast charms. A photogenic city whose merits have attracted `Hollywood’ producers and location hunters, it is a true mixture of natural beauty and many cultures as one at peace with the world.
There are many ways to fill your time in Vancouver, whether you are at home in a museum or strolling in stunning Stanley Park and or catching the panoramic views from Gross Mountain, Vancouver has something for everyone. We hope you benefit from the following selection of city’s attractions.
