Vancouver is known as the gateway to both the Canadian Rockies and to Alaska. Whenever a top ten list is compiled of the friendliest, cleanest and most liveable cities in the world, Vancouver invariably ends up ranking among the top seeds. It is therefore unsurprising that Vancouver holidays are so popular. Probably the most ethnically and linguistically diverse city in Canada, 52% of Vancouver’s permanent residents have a non-English first language, and this melting pot of diversity is reflected in everything from the city’s architecture, restaurants and nightlife to its culture.
Architecturally speaking, Vancouver has a very modern vibe. Monkey puzzle trees, Japanese maples, magnolias, and azaleas can be seen on virtually every street, adding a unique sense of charm to the area. Vancouver also boasts one of the largest urban parks in North America; the 1,001-acre Stanley Park which contains half a million trees, many of which stand over 200 feet tall and have stood for hundreds of years. 8 million people visit this urban paradise every single year.
