In April 2013, I was able to visit Canada for the first time together with Mike, where we spent two nights in Montreal. The following year, I spent four nights in Vancouver visiting some friends and a few days after that, I was able to enjoy a day tour in Toronto during my lay over. Canada is a very beautiful country with friendly people and I really hope to be able to visit this country again in the future. In case you are visiting any of these three Canadian cities in the future, here are some of my traveltips.



Science World at Telus World of Science: Opened in 1989, this science centre is run by a not-for-profit organization in Vancouver.

Dr. Sun Yat Sen Garden: This is the first Chinese or "scholars" garden built outside of China. Of course, the China Town itself is very interesting and full of restaurants where you can enjoy authentic Chinese food, the way I did.

Vancouver Look Out: This is a must visit if you intend to see great views of the city.

Dominion Building: This 13 storey, 53 metre (175ft) tall building was Vancouver's first steel framed high-rise.

Vancouver Art Gallery

Canada Place: An iconic landmark which is home of the Vancouver Convention Centre and the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel among others.

Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art

Christ Church Cathedral: This is the cathedral church of the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster of the Anglican Church of Canada.

Steam Clock: Located in Vancouver's Victorian Gastown, this working steam clock is one of only few steam clocks in the world.

Lonsdale Quay Market: Aside from the numerous shops and restaurants, you get to enjoy Vancouver's best view from the North Shore's waterfront market and shops.

Capilano Suspension Bridge Park: Inside the park are lots of attractions including the Capilano Suspension Bridge which was originally built in 1889.
