|Canada... Welcomes the World!|
There isn’t a city in the world quite like Vancouver. Host City to the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, its unique blend of cosmopolitan culture, laid-back attitudes and natural beauty has inspired countless visitors and residents to declare this one of the world’s best and most beautiful cities. Not only is it a vibrant, young, and friendly city, its amazing rugged setting against snowcapped mountain peaks and ocean surroundings makes this sophisticated metropolis truly spectacular!
Unparalleled outdoor adventure is within easy reach, yet the urban landscape is ripe for exploring as well. One of the best restaurant cities in the world, Vancouver is undergoing a culinary renaissance. Visitors can savor West Coast cuisine at its finest, showcasing unique regional ingredients with a fusion of Asian and European flavours.
Vancouver’s vast multiculturalism is reflected in the astounding creative outpourings in the city’s art galleries, museums and performing arts groups. And during the Cultural Olympiad 2010 — a 60-day explosion of events in theatres, galleries, plazas and on the streets — visitors were treated to even more extraordinary examples of Canadian talent.
Thanks to Vancouver’s mild climate, the city is easy to explore in the winter time and fitting everything in might be the biggest challenge. See for yourself why Vancouver is easy to visit and hard to leave!
