Vancouver City

Vancouver lies in the south-western corner of British Columbia, itself the most south-western province in Canada. Lying on the Pacific coast, it is backed by the Coast Mountains and looks out at Vancouver Island across Georgia Strait. The city is 40km (25miles) north of the US border.

The Vancouver area was originally inhabited by the Salish Indians. In 1867, a town sprang up around the bar of one 'Gassy' Jack Deighton, so named for his ability to talk and became known as Gastown. In 1887, the Canadian Pacific Railway's first train arrived in the city, the first ship docked from China, and Vancouver began its boom as a trading centre.

Now Canada's third-largest city and routinely designated as one of the world's best places to live, Vancouver is preparing for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

Places to visit in Vancouver

Vancouver is a city which has something for everyone. For good shopping, then head for Robson Street. This vibrant district has an eclectic mix of boutiques, unusual and artistic goods, hip cafes and good dining.

Granville Island is Vancouver's cultural hotspot. With its market, theatres and galleries, visitors can expect a wide scope of sights and sounds. This is a popular spot for artists and is a place where you can enjoy many kinds of different food.

The Capilano Suspension Bridge is one of Vancouver's most popular tourist attractions. The bridge is 450 feet across and 230 feet above Capilano River and is one of the world's greatest suspension footbridges. To relax, then head to Stanley Park, an evergreen oasis of 1,000 acres close to the heart of Vancouver's downtown. It has attractions from the children's farmyard, to a miniature railway. The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is tucked away behind protective walls in the middle of bustling Chinatown and has something to delight everybody.

For one of Greater Vancouver's best vantage points and most popular attractions, the North Shore's Grouse Mountain provides a stunning view for skiers and tourists. Visitors are able to take the Skyride to the Peak Chalet and enjoy a meal with spectacular views.
