There are few metropolises on the globe that can give Vancouver a run for its money on the looks front. With the hulking rises of the North Shore Mountains dominating the horizon, and the icy Pacific creeping around the city to the Salish Sea, it really is one to take the breath away. Once you've got over the initial gasp, a whole other world of fascination awaits within. From the swaying conifers of Stanley Park to the bohemian brewpubs of Gastown, the soy-scented cookhouses of Chinatown to the steel-clad skyscrapers of the centre, there's oodles of things to do and see. And that's not even mentioning the wilds of great British Columbia, lurking just over the ridges to the north-east.
Eager to really feel the pulse of this throbbing cityscape? Opt for Vancouver holiday rentals, which are your chance to delve into this multicultural urban playground and feel like you've been living here for years. You'll have a pad to call your very own, often with plenty more space for chilling in compared to classic hotel suites. Holiday apartments in Vancouver come in all shapes and sizes, too, from stylish condos for the status-seeking millennial, to cosy mountain huts with access to the trailheads of British Columbia. What are you waiting for?
You certainly won't have to stray far from the doorstep of those holiday rentals in Vancouver to discover something to do in this buzzing city. Those nestled in the heart of the metropolis can just strike out to reach the wonders of Stanley Park, where restored pioneer buildings mingle with pretty conifer forests. The Vancouver Art Gallery is nestled nearby, while the summersaulting dolphin pods and tooth-snapping caimans of the Vancouver Aquarium offer an altogether different attraction. The mountains then beckon those staying on the outskirts, rising to the rocky peaks of the Fannin Range and The Lions, home to alpine skiing and awesome hiking routes that will make you want to work off all the food you’ll be feasting on back in the city.
When it comes to public transport, Vancouver's network is divided in 3. The buses are the most commonly used of the lot, with so-called B Lines and other TransLink routes connecting the CBD with all of the suburbs and major districts. Then there's the SkyTrain, which has its main interchange close to Gastown on the Waterfront, and operates links direct to YVR International. Last is the SeaBus – a ferry that connects to Lonsdale Quay across in North Vancouver. Hiring a car is also a popular choice for getting around, thanks largely to the presence of Freeway 1 in the heart of the city, offering a convenient escape route to the North Shore Mountains and the dramatic grandeur of British Columbia beyond.
