In the west of Canada, there is the beautiful and dear City of Vancouver to miss. Indeed, the prices of goods there are quite expensive, but that certainly can be circumvented.
Some might think that Vancouver is the version of the big city of San Francisco. But believe me, Vancouver is a special city that has unique and different characteristics.
This time I will invite you to get to know the city of Vancouver, which is located on the western edge of the country of Canada. Clean, beautiful, and charming are three expressions that I can call to illustrate the majesty of one of the cities that is touted as the most expensive city in Canada.
Usually, the tourists who visit Vancouver previously visited one of the cities in Washington State, United States, namely Seattle. Based on my experience, a trip from the rainy city, Seattle, to Vancouver is approximately 3 hours by bus or private vehicle.
You need one week to get around and enjoy this beautiful city as a tourist. That was the week I spent while visiting Vancouver. There are many places that you can visit here, for example, Stanley Park, Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver Art Gallery, Robson Square, Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden, Vancouver Aquarium, and others.
When winter arrives, the place that is a favorite of foreign and domestic tourists is Cypress Mountain Ski Area. Their visitors can feel the thick, soft snow for skiing and snowboarding.
The cost of living in Vancouver is very high, so it also impacts on visiting tourists. Usually, tourists have to spend quite a lot of money in this city because prices for accommodation, transportation, and food are relatively expensive, even compared to cities in the United States.
One way to save money when it comes to this city is to stay in hostels that provide breakfast menus and cook for dinner because usually hostels are equipped with kitchens.
As with most cities in the United States and Canada, food in Vancouver is relatively more western. But the difference, here many shops sell good quality organic snacks, so of course, the food is healthier.
Also, based on my observations during the week there, the people who live there are rather rarely buying fast food. That may be because the people of Vancouver have begun to realize about the health effects of the food they consume.
The conclusion from me who only briefly visited Vancouver: This place is one place that is a pity if passed. Some might think that Vancouver is the version of the big city of San Francisco. But believe me, Vancouver is a special city that has unique and distinctive characteristics with other cities in the world. Have a nice trip to Maple country.
