Taking the Amtrak train to and from Seattle to Vancouver is very nice because you can relax. The fare for roundtrip ticket is about $35.00.

Make sure to book online and be prepared to give all your information like your your passport and credit card. This is a safe site. You needed to give this information because you are crossing the border of the United States and going through immigration later.

The only problem that I encountered taking the train is that it gets really noisy. The train which I took is very old and I can hear the loud noise of t he grinding of the rims to the railroads.

Also, there are many passengers who were noisy talking on their cellular phones and passengers who walked by going to the dining area.

Make sure to go to the train station early in Vancouver. If you are taking the last train, make sure to be there at 30 minutes before it leaves. Sometimes the train leaves early and there are no more available train. Your only option is to take the bus! And, they don't refund your money right away!
The view is not good either except when I got to White Rock in Canada.
