"City of Clouds and Big Windows" Vancouver by el_ruso

Vancouver Travel Guide: 3,957 reviews and 8,257 photos

This is definitely a must see! It is a vibrant city which is clean and laid back. The natural setting is wonderful, full of wildlife and beautiful scenery.

Basically, the city seems to offer the benefits and lifestyle of Manhattan without the negatives. Highrises are not too high, and the space between them is full of light and greenery. The city is immaculately clean, and its residents very friendly.

Another draw is its mix of cultures. The city has a significant Asian, particularly Chinese, population. Also the heritage of aboriginal people of Haida and Kwakiutl tribes is sincerely embraced by newcomers and readily shared by the native people themselves.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:unique culture, beautiful setting, modern urban lifestyle
  • Cons:very, very far; too much rain and clouds
  • In a nutshell:one of the best destinations in the world
