About Vancouver

Vancouver is located on Canada's west coast. Nestled between the mountains and sea, it has a pleasant climate the whole year round, leading it to be known as one of the world’s best cities to live in. Vancouver is a multi-ethnic, multi-faceted city with a high proportion of Asian residents. Whether in Chinatown or a community with many Chinese, you can find familiar Chinese restaurants and Chinese supermarkets, and feel the kindness of your hometown in a foreign country. Vancouver is exceptionally suitable for relaxing holiday vacations. City parks are a good place to go for a stroll. You can also walk through the malls and shopping streets to buy local specialties. Taste the flavors of the world or enjoy the stunning natural scenery of the nearby countryside.

Located at the center of Vancouver, Stanley Park is an urban green boasting a sequoia forest, a never-ending waterfront causeway, Indian totem poles, and the Vancouver Aquarium. A tapestry of vegetation, the Park offers compelling views and is dubbed a “huge natural oxygen bar”. For locals, this is a perfect place for a rich variety of leisurely outdoor activities, be it walking, cycling, rollerblading or skateboarding. A grassy playing field and waterfront pool can be found at the beach in the Park’s western side, which also serves as an open-air cinema during summer nights. The beach is a perfect spot to watch the sunset and a frequent gathering place for local residents to have barbecues and picnics.

Trip Moments

Dominic   
Vancouver has a rainy climate, and I did not see the sun at all during the three days I spent there. However, I was still able to get the magic of why this city has long headed the list of most livable cities in the world. I strolled along the bay, and searched with a map and found that large maple tree in Stanley Park, and only then did I discover that an owl that was unwilling to show its face had already beaten me to the tree and occupied the branch where the red leaves were thickest.

This large maple tree is located at the edge of Stanley Park, and if you walk towards the depths, you will not be able to stroll the entire distance without it taking the better part of the day. It takes at least 90 minutes to cycle round the park. This urban forest park (nearly 1,000 acres larger than New York’s Central Park), the largest in North America, occupies almost an entire peninsula. The towering trees that cover the sky, the broad and tranquil lake, and the native totem poles with different shapes face the beach of English Bay. Naturally there is also an endless number of people who are exercising and walking around inside the park. All of this is a very rare urban landscape for us.

The birth of the primitive forest inside the park was determined by legislation at the time of the city’s foundation in 1887. In Stanley Park in October, you will be deeply moved by the sight of the red leaves of different shapes that are fluttering and falling no matter where you walk. But the locals will proudly tell you that it is the cherry blossom festival in spring that is the most enchanting time. I really only learned this after visiting Vancouver; before then my understanding of “livable” standards was very poor.
