Begin your day at Gastown, Vancouver's historic district where you'll stroll down the cobbled streets and explore the 19th century buildings. Next, head to Vancouver's Chinatown, one of North America largest Chinatown and soak in the lively cultural atmosphere.

At the Canada Place, see the beautiful panoramic sails by the water and architectural landmark of Vancouver.
Take a stop at Brockton Point in Stanley Park to see the nine historic totem poles built by the First People in British Columbia. These stunning pieces of artworks reflect the rich culture of the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest. You'll take a walk in the forest and ascend to Prospect Point, the highest point of Stanley Park, and get amazing scenic views of the North Shore Mountains, the Lions Gate Bridge, and Burrand Inlet. You'll also pass by English Bay, Vancouver's famous sunbathing region destination, and Vancouver Harbor.
You'll also take a stop at Granville Island and venture to Granville's Public Market where you'll find a variety of stalls selling beautiful homemade goods and gastronomic masterpieces. Explore the eclectic art scene by meeting and chatting with artists in their shops and viewing their unique creations made from glass to textiles.
Finally, you'll conclude your Vancouver City Highlights experience at the lookout viewing deck high atop the Vancouver Lookout to get a 360-degree view of Vancouver. The glass elevator will lift you up 430 feet skyward from the street level in just 40 seconds. The view from the top will leave you breathless.
