The YVC airport looked kind of old, with carpet that looked like it belongs in a retirement home. We went through security check really fast and went on to find the train. After half an hour we arrived on Granville Road, the centre of Vancouver. Our hostel, st. Clair's, was cute, small, and really convenient. It didn't include a kitchen, but it was great for getting to know the city and was close to everything we wanted to see. Maybe also because our Dutch legs don't mind walking through the whole city, but also because of the location. Our room had 4 beds, and we stayed there with I think 5 different girls during the 4 days here. Our jetlag couldn't stand in our way of finding a burger. We did find out that there are almost no MacDonalds in Vancouver, and we were really looking forward to fast food (München Airport has almost no food services, only a really expensive restaurant, and we had to stay there for 7 hours). In Gastown, an old part of Vancouver, we found a hipster organic burger place. It was nice, and my vegetarian friend was completely in her place.
Great day, and I would suggest everyone to try this!
Vancouver:At the beginning of our trip we decided to explore the city for a couple of days so we could rest a bit after our journey of 24 hours to get to Vancouver. We arrived late in the evening and were exhausted so we didn't do much the first day.
Get set for a whole lot of fun today as you visit Kitsilano Beach, followed by North America’s third-largest Chinatown. Chinatown has a host of big and small shops for you to explore and eateries to try out. Late in the afternoon, watch theatre at Queen Elizabeth Theatre or the Vancouver Playhouse, or learn more about the rich cultural heritage of Canada at Museum of Vancouver or Vancover Art Gallery.Don’t plan a very hectic day today as you need to catch a long flight home early the next day.Happy travels!
Enjoy a lazy stroll in Stanley Park, overlooking the waters of Vancouver Harbour, and a visit to the Vancouver Aquarium nestled within the park.
