4 Great Reasons to Visit Vancouver

There are some great reasons to visit Vancouver either as an extension to your Alaska cruise or at the start of a land based trip to the Rockies. Here’s 4 of them:


Vancouver has a multicultural metropolis with communities from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Mainland China, The Philippines, South Korea & Japan.

Apart from Chinatown which is just east of Downtown Vancouver, head to Richmond (25 minutes South of Downtown Vancouver), where inside the various shopping malls you will find a variety of 400+ Asian Restaurants which are sure to have something for everybody’s taste buds.

2. CAFE CULTURE in Gastown

For those of you who love the Cafe Culture head to Gastown which has long been the city’s coolest enclave. Here you will find the baristas competing for who can craft the best cup of coffee in the city!

3. The Spectacular Seawall

This 22km waterside greenway strikes a path around lush Stanley Park to Canada Place, tracking False Creek all the way to Kilts (the bike path goes even further South). If you are on foot just don’t be the person who walks in the bike lane.

4. Art & Culture

In Stanley Park visit the intricately carved Totem Poles at Brockton point. Visit The Bill Reid Gallery, Coastal Peoples Fire Arts Gallery & the UBC’s Museum of Anthropology.
