Vancouver Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

Vancouver’s breezes carry the scents of nature and aromas of all the urban delights you’d expect from a city regularly voted, “the Worlds most livable”.

The city takes its name from the British navigator who landed here in 1792. The original settlement was called “Gastown”, in honor of Gassy Jack, who built the city’s first tavern. Gassy Jack and his makeshift pub may be long gone, but in the historic neighborhood of Gastown, his spirit lingers on.

Vancouver’s early history continues at Waterfront Station, the western terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The railway’s construction brought Chinese workers by the thousands, whose descendants have enriched Vancouver ever since. Experience this interweaving of cultures in Chinatown, where the fusing of Oriental flavors with local seafood has helped earn the city the title, “the Culinary Capital of Canada.”

After visiting Vancouver’s central highlights, ride the ferry to Granville Island. Stock up on provisions at the Granville Island Public Market and sample craft ales at Granville Island Brewing. From Granville Island, head to Queen Elizabeth Park on Little Mountain, a peaceful oasis high above the city.

When it’s time to answer the call of the wild, cross the Lions Gate Bridge to The North Shore, a wilderness where bears roam and salmon-filled rivers flow through old-growth forests. Less than a two-hour drive from the city is Whistler Blackcomb Resort, the largest ski resort in North America. The beautifully connected runs here cater to all skill levels and attract elite skiers and beginners from all over the globe.


  • After months in production our Vancouver Travel Guide is finally complete! To everyone who requested this spectacular city, we thank you for your patience. We hope the wait was worth it.

  • I’m so happy I live here! I couldn’t ask for a better place to live. It really is a beautiful city, and I’m happy to call it home

  • Is it bad that I teared up watching this?

    I’ve been trying to find a place to live in for months. whether it be the best country or city. I currently live in Oklahoma, USA. and I’m absolutely struck by Vancouver. hopefully this would be the right move

    • Actually both San Francisco and New York City you mentioned have a majority non-white population. 2/3 of New York city is non-white. Slightly over half of population in San Francisco is also non-white, with 1/3 of them being Asian. and I can’t imagine New York and San Francisco being cheaper to live in.

    • Vancouver Island has a lot of great places to live as well.

    • Right now you’re tearing up, but if you make the mistake of moving to Vancouver you’ll be bawling your eyes out over the cost of living. You won’t be able to do and see all that’s here because all your money will go to rent and groceries.

    • Hannah Tubbs I’ve lived in Vancouver all my life and while it is truly a stunning city to look at in the summer (when mostly all the clips in this video were taken) the rest of the year is incredibly dark, dreary, rainy and downright depressing basically 8 months out of the year. The video also fails to mention how ridiculously expensive it is to live here because foreign Chinese millionaires buy homes here and then leave them vacant for the property value. So you will never own a home here unless you have $1.5 million + to spare. People here are somewhat snobbish and there is no sense of community in my personal opinion, and if you’re from Oklahoma where I expect most people are white, you will quickly become a minority here as like 70% of Vancouver population is asian. Not that that’s a bad thing but it can be a bit of a shock if you don’t know. I’d suggest doing some serious research before just up and moving here after seeing a really good video. The video doesn’t lie but it’s doing its job – promoting a city in the best possible way and painting a picture for potential travellers about what it’s like. I don’t hate Vancouver but I honestly do not like it. There are much more livable and exciting cities in the world, like New York, London, San Francisco, Portland etc.

  • I want to move here. No other place in Canada can compare from what I’ve seen. Beautifully done video, you captured Vancouver’s stunning nature very well!! Love this.
