Van­cou­ver woos In­di­ans

A multi-cul­tural city framed by moun­tains and sea, Van­cou­ver, Bri­tish Columbia is a beau­ti­fully-set city. It’s also a lot more than a pretty back­drop.

Ac­cord­ing to Praveen Syal, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, IN­DUS Trav­els, “Peo­ple like a lot about Canada, but I think the wide open, clean spa­ces is some­thing most peo­ple from In­dia ap­pre­ci­ate. They are also over­whelmed with the nat­u­ral beauty Canada has to of­fer in its var­i­ous lakes and moun­tains.”

Here’s top five rec­om­men­da­tions by In­dus Trav­els, DMC spe­cial­is­ing in Canada:

1. Stan­ley Park: This 400 hectares of beaches, forests and gar­dens fills al­most half the down­town core. To see it, rent a bike and cruise around the multi-path Sea­wall, stop­ping to visit the ot­ters, dol­phins and pen­guins at the Van­cou­ver Aquar­ium on the way.

2. Granville Is­land: A for­mer in­dus­trial site just south of down­town, Granville Is­land is a mix of gal­leries, stu­dios and food pur­vey­ors. Grab a snack at the bustling pub­lic mar­ket, shop for hand­made crafts, and watch artisans at work. To get there, hop on a foot pas­sen­ger ferry from the north side of False Creek.

3. Gastown: The old­est part of the city is home to hip nightspots and trend-set­ting eater­ies. Join a walk­ing tour to learn about Van­cou­ver’s rough- and- tum­ble past or browse the bou­tiques lin­ing the cob­bled streets. Nearby Chi­na­town bus­tles with open mar­kets and dim­sum restau­rants.

4. Yale­town: This trendy dis­trict of re­vi­talised ware­houses on the North shore of False Creek har­bours chic de­sign shops and some of Van­cou­ver’s top restau­rants. The sunny pa­tios, built on for­mer ware­house load­ing docks, are prime spots in this fash­ion­able part of town.

5. North Van­cou­ver: See the lofty Capi­lano Sus­pen­sion Bridge or ride the Skyride aerial tram to the top of Grouse Moun­tain.
