My Unique Adventures Around The World

Vancouver – An Exotic Holiday Destination

Located in British Columbia, Vancouver is a well-known seaport city in Canada. The place has been ranked as one of the well-living cities in the world. The city is a blend of urban architecture and natural wonders like city side beaches, lakefront forests, and snow-clad mountains. During my weeklong holiday, I enjoyed lots of outing activities. Mentioned below are some of the best places in my list.

  • Stanley Park

Situated along the borders of Vancouver downtown area Stanley Park spans across 1001 acres of land. The waterfront park is flanked by English Bay and Vancouver Harbor. The historic park was incorporated in the year 1886. The place houses, dense forests with centuries-old trees. The view of the Lions Gate Bridge from the Prospect Point is amazing in the night. The place is popular for its Seawall walk, aquarium, hiking trails, exotic foliage, and gardens.

Your visit to Canada cannot be complete without a trip to Granville Island in Vancouver. The place houses renowned theatres, fine art galleries, a broad marina, and a huge public market. The place is perhaps the largest hub of entertainment and draws millions of tourists every year. The food streets, coffee outlets, and waterfront cafes are quite popular among the visitors.

  • VanDusen Botanical Garden

Botanical Gardens have always enticed me beyond expectations and VanDusen Botanical Garden was definitely the most colorful part of my trip. Located at 5251 Oak Street, the garden spans around 55 acres of land and serves as a wonderful habitat for thousands of rare and exotic plants, shrubs, trees, and annuals. There are beautiful ponds flanked by multi-colored foliage and blooming trees. If you visit during the autumn months, you can enjoy the sight of colorful autumn trees. Some of the highlights of the place are the seasonal fragrance garden, a heritage vegetable garden, a black garden, a heather garden, and the Sino Himalayan Garden.
