About Montreal

Canada's second largest city is also subsequent to Paris for the world's largest French-speaking population, but bilingual Montreal makes perfect sense. Of its four universities, two instruction in English and two in French. Sip coffee at an elegant cafe on a cobblestone street in Old Montreal or check out a heavy metal concert at the Parc Jean-Drapeau, site of the 1967 World Expo. The entertainment complex also has a Formula 1 racing circuit, artificial beach, huge pool, and even a casino. Montreal allows a variety of festivals throughout the year, from fireworks competitions to jazz performances. When evening comes, get tickets for a Canadiens hockey game (if you can) or Cirque du Soleil (founded in Montreal), or come by one of the restaurants that put Montreal on the foodie map. Hotels vary from 18th-century stone homes to stylish modern high-rises. This is city you don't want to miss.

Popular Attractions in Montreal

Notre-Dame Basilica
4.7/5
316 Reviews
Church
World-famous Celine Dion can pretty much get married in any chapel that she pleases. That she chose Notre-Dame Basilica, a beautiful cathedral in Old Montreal, speaks to the historic building’s importance. The busloads of tourists agree, as visitors arrive to this attraction to view its beautiful stained glass windows, the Casavant Frères pipe organ and the Gothic Revival architecture. While the church’s façade is a work of grandeur, it’s the multi-colored interior that really amazes guests.

Port/Bay
Ever since fur traders posted themselves here in 1611, this two kilometer stretch along the St. Lawrence River has been an economic and social focal point in Montreal. While it may be over 400 years old, the waterfront has been refurbished and maintained, transforming it into a diverse and attractive area conductive to a multitude of activities such as biking, Segway-ing, pleasure boating, and romantic walking. The Old Port is home to the Montreal Science Centre, a new urban beach opened up in 2012, and Cirque du Soleil performs at Jacques Cartier Quay.

Featured Neighbourhood
For an authentic foray into the heart of Montreal's Chinese community, don't miss the Chinatown experience, centered around the bustling avenues of La Gauchetière Street, Saint Urbain Street and Saint Lawrence Boulevard. You'll find exotic international foods, cultural craft and clothing shops, martial arts exhibitions and Asian medicine boutiques. It is one of the most walk-able areas of the city, with a tourist designation that allows the lively bars and eateries to stay open late, serving up Cantonese seafood, dim sum, barbecue and Vietnamese Pho to your heart's content. Enter through replicas of Imperial gates and mingle with locals at summer festivals, or check out the Montreal Chinese Cultural Community Center for events or language classes.

Botanical Garden
Garden
Built in 1931, the Montreal Botanical Garden is dominated by the French garden style. It is divided into greenhouses and outdoor parks with various themes. It is planted with tens of thousands of plants and is the largest botanical garden in North America. In 1984, Mr. Wu Yisun donated his collection of bonsai, and now the bonsai area of the Botanical Garden has become a larger bonsai exhibition area outside of Asia. The tropical rainforest is a greenhouse that displays lush rainforests such as climbing creatures and epiphytic organisms. Greenhouses in arid regions show plants such as aloe tequila in the African desert.
