When anyone asks me about Vancouver I can honestly hand on my heart say, it’s one of the best places I have ever ever visited.
Quite literally, the atmosphere. Vancouver’s clean air is thanks to it’s really close connection to nature. There are mountains and forests surrounding the City, and the Pacific ocean is right on the cities doorstep. Here the great outdoors isn’t just a place, it’s a way of life. But it’s a modern City waiting to be discovered as well. So in this guide, we’re going to help you make the most of it! We’re going to look at food, money, transport, and a whole lot more, but first let’s get from the airport.
Vancouver International airport is less than 10 miles from Downtown area, and is Canada’s second busiest airport, after Toronto Pearson International.
Getting between the airport and the City Centre is relatively straightforward – a 20-minute taxi ride will cost around $45.
Another way into the City is the SkyTrain – it’s a bit like London’s DLR with driverless carriages, you take the Canada line for half an hour or so, and it costs around $7.
Vancouver has an extensive public transport network, as well as being a really easy place to dive. Here’s what you need to know:
Now it’s not often that we can tell someone to drive a car through a major City, but in Vancouver drive away until your heart’s content! We hired a car and cannot recommend it enough. Thanks to the Cities grid system, wide roads with plenty of easy understood signs and generally well-tempered drivers – driving was an absolute doddle! There’s ample parking wherever you go, even at the busy tourist hotspots, not to mention fuel is cheap, and traffic generally wasn’t too bad in our experience.
