Vancouver City Travel Guide

Vancouver City Travel Guide

Vancouver, one of the world’s most spectacular cities, welcomed the world as host city of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Named “Top City of the Americas” in Condé Nast Traveler Magazine’s 2009 Readers’ Choice Awards, Vancouver offers travelers both outstanding opportunities for outdoor adventure and the sophisticated amenities of a world-class city.

Renowned for its scenic beauty and endless opportunities for outdoor activities, Vancouver is also a cosmopolitan city with all the urban amenities — fine dining, shopping, museums, galleries, music and theatre.

Hit the nightclub scene or wander through ethnic enclaves. Relive memories of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games with attractions and activities related to the Olympics. Visit the aquarium, take a city tour or stroll through Stanley Park, the city’s urban wilderness, or explore the surrounding area on an interesting driving route. Don’t miss the year-round markets or fail to take in a hockey game. Festivals? There is always something to celebrate in Vancouver. If all else fails, there is always that fabulous outdoor life the city is renowned for.

There are more great restaurants in Vancouver than we can shake a salad at so we have chosen some unique views from the Lookout! at Harbour Centre.

The Top of Vancouver Revolving Restaurant, in downtown Vancouver is stunning. Luckily, the dishes served up at the revolving restaurant atop the observation deck are good enough to compete with the million-dollar vistas. Steak, seafood, pastas and 360°.

At Great Han Mongolian BBQ, you choose all the raw meat, veggies and noodles you want, mix up your own sauce and give it to the cook who spreads it all out on the superheated (700° C!) grill to let it simmer until the meat is cooked, the veggies grilled and the noodles coated in yummy sauce. Best of all, it’s cheap and all you can eat!

Last but never least, RainCity Grill. Check out the amazing views of English Bay along with modern art and a classy ambiance. Try their phenomenal brunch menu on Saturday and Sunday. It offers three levels in the main dining room, and fine dining, as well as an outside patio. Try the seared roasted duck breast, or the grilled beef strip loin. Both amazing entrees!
