Why You Should Visit Vancouver
Ringed by mountains on one side and a beautiful coastline on the other, Vancouver is an Instagrammers paradise. It’s also home to some of Canada’s most acclaimed restaurants and its largest Chinatown. A visit to Vancouver also offers a singular opportunity to explore the country's First Nations’ heritage.
When to Visit Vancouver
Winters are mild in Vancouver, so any time of year is a good time to visit Vancouver. The locals' biggest complaint is the winter rain, which can put a damper on plans to enjoy a bike ride in Stanley Park or a walk across the legendary Capilano Suspension Bridge.
