About Vancouver

is consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is a city of stunning natural beauty nestled between the snow-capped Coastal Mountains and the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, as well as being a cosmopolitan city, bustling with activity.

A compelling mix of recreational options (ranging from sea kayaking and mountain biking to snowboarding and skiing) and the multicultural flair of a metropolis lure millions of visitors to Vancouver every year.  In addition, the international spotlight will shine on Vancouver, along with Whistler, during the Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games in February / March 2010.

City highlights in downtown Vancouver are historic Gastown, exotic Chinatown and trendy Yaletown, which are all located on the Burrard Peninsula, as is Stanley Park, the city’s 1,000-acre-forest with its dense cover of fir and cedar. The landmark Lions Gate Bridge links the city with North Vancouver and the North Shore Mountains across Burrard Inlet.
