Toronto is the largest city and Canada. Not at pretty historically as Montreal, it is its many vibrant neiboughoods that make it an interesting place. Know as the most multi-cultural city in the world... you can visit our chinatown, koreatown, little india, little italy (now more little portugal), and well many more.
Places not to be missed (in my opinion)
Kensington Market, a real market with many cultures blending, a great place to snack as you shop on east indian rotis, latin papusas or empaniada's. Kensington St is also the meca for trendy second hand clothing stores.
Queen St West of Bathurst, most people flock to Queen St east of spadian where one can find stores the likes of Gap... however west of Bathurst gets more interesting with many galleries, out of the way restaurants, and shops. On a nice day take your lunch out from Chippy's or Clafoutti and eat in Trinity Bellwoods park.
College Street west of Bathurst, after you get tired of Kensington you can always head west on College to one of its many many restaurants for a bite. This area known as little italy is also lively at night, and great in the summer to hop from patio to patio.
And well that's just the tip of the iceberg.... more another time
Not sure of the name, but there is a new hostel on Augusta in Kensington market... if your chill... this is the place to stay, right in the market... though I have not been I gather their bar is a great place to hang out. Eating in nearby chinatown or kensinton offers some of your cheapest deals city wide.
The global village hostel is brilliantly situated at the corner of Spadina and King... in the thick of things. Especially good if you are the type to like clubbing... as you are pretty much in the newly named 'clubland'.
- Pros:its not actually called NEW toronto as this page suggests!!! Also, unlike most north american cities of its size, people really live in and occupy the downtown core. We haver residential and tree lined streets very centrally.
- Cons:Very spread out and too much concrete!
- In a nutshell:To appreciate the best of toronto in my opionion, you have to be the type to look past the often sterile facades to see the real anything goes nitty gritty city.
only open from 9-4, A+U is a great spot for breakfast or lunch. Diner style offering also a selection of top notch... more travel advice
