Whilst you could just wander around the city of vancouver, admiring architecture, eating food and Discovering its diversity. There are definitely some attractions you can't miss. Like Granville Island. A former waterfront industrial site, now home to a public market, food shops, restaurants, galleries and shopping. Where you can not only witness the diversity in cuisines but also culture.Natural Landscape and rich culture isn't all the city has to offer either, Vancouver is also home to a great variety of museums and art galleries. Most notably the Vancouver Art gallery, which is home to some of Canada's most iconic pieces of art. While the city center itself is definitely home to most of the main attractions. The surrounding natural landscape is definitely something not to be missed whilst visiting vancouver. To see the best of Vancouver's slice of Nature, a stunning walk to Capilano Suspension Bridge, which is not only one of the oldest but the most beautiful bridges within the whole region.
Activities in Vancouver
When it comes to enjoying the outdoors, there is no city better than Vancouver. With an extensive blend of mountain terrain and coastline, options are limitless. Most notably is Stanley park. A must see while visiting Vancouver, covering almost 1,00 acres, it's also an outdoor activities haven. Home to beaches, an aquarium, splash park, botanical gardens, a golf course and even 17 tennis courts. Making it a great park to please all, except water sports. Which brings me on to my next options, Jericho Beach. Where sitting down and chilling out is a sin. Enjoy kayaking, windsurfing, paddle boarding and sailing. WIth all equipment available to rent, as well as lessons and tours. It's a great way to enjoy the water whilst also getting a pretty awesome view of the city's skyline.

Amazing food is one of the things Vancouver has an abundance of. Renowned for being one of the best destinations in the world to experience pan-Asian cuisine, the best place to experience thi is at Vancouver Chinatown. One of the oldest districts and the largest across the whole of Canada and the U.S.. From delicious dim sum at Floata Seafood restaurant or tck into a big bowl of ramen at Bae Bei Chinese brasserie.
