I dont remember much about Vancouver actually. Between Seattle & Vancouver, i seemed to remember seattle better. But looking thru the pictures, vancouver seemed more interesting
We took a 3hours plus train to Vancouver from Seattle early morning. Its a nice train ride with free wifi on board. If you intend to do the same too, remember to go to the train station early to get the tickets cuz its hassle - First, queue to get physical ticket, then join the second queue to get seat number. Therafter, join the third queue to check in the luggage. Also, bring breakfast cuz there's no cafes at the train station, only coin operated snack machines.
Granville Island @ Vancouver! i love this place. Its basically a marketplace with fresh foods , eateries and buskers. Take the river taxi over to the 'island' which is like a 5 minutes leisurely ride.
While browsing at souvenir shops, i keep seeing figures (similar to the picture below on right). Was wondering what's that major attraction and must see. While strolling along stanely park, we finally chanced upon it. Aint much to look at.Gastown is one of the historical places to visit in vancouver. Basically nice quaint shops lined the cobblestone streets. Quite a nice place to wander around with many souveneir shops. The famous steam clock (bottom right) is a major attraction in gastown - a small tower that emits steam. I would have missed if it not for the throng of crowd busy snapping pictures of it. Gastown is a few blocks away from the unsavory part of town, so be careful not to wander off tracks - we almost did but tyre spotted many dodgy looking pple and we u-turned.
Zermatt in Switzerland.
Next stop - LA!
