How can I find hotels in Vancouver?

Soaring contemporary skyscrapers reflect the sea and mountains that surround the city so it is no surprise that locals think Vancouver is among the most beautiful cities in the world. As well as its landscape Vancouver has a cultural scene of theatres, museums and galleries, a vibrant culinary map and shopping that ranges from high-end designers to quirky craft shops. The city you'll see from your hotel in Vancouver is mainly modern but people have been living on the land here for many centuries. During your Vancouver visit explore the fascinating and dynamic culture of the indigenous Salish population. After your day's sightseeing, step out of your hotel in Vancouver to sample a nightlife that buzzes with waterfront Shakespearian theatre or indie art bars and comedy clubs. Much of Vancouver life is lived outdoors and in the summer it is possible to ski in the morning (the slopes are just 30 minutes' drive away) and then swim in the afternoon. Other outdoor activities to try on your Vancouver visit include mountain biking, hiking and kayaking.

What must I see in Vancouver?

If you have found cheap hotels in the city centre you can savour the art exhibits in South Main Gallery and Hot Art Wet City while Centre A in Chinatown showcases contemporary Asian art. Other museums worth popping into are Science World in its geodesic dome and the Museum of Anthropology with its indigenous artefacts. Alternatively, the Art Deco Marine Building houses maritime exhibits. If the sun is shining take a stroll in one of Vancouver's many parks. Stanley Park is the oldest and largest with over 1,000 acres of forests, wetlands and beaches to enjoy. It is also home to Vancouver Aquarium. Spend a few hours walking or cycling along the shores of English Bay. Look out for the Inuit Inukshuk rock sculpture and False Creek with its dragon boats.  A kayak trip on the Salish Sea with an indigenous guide is a fascinating way of getting even closer to Salish history while on a forest walk, you can learn about the way plants were used for shelter, food and medicine. At the end of the day, dive into Vancouver's culinary scene which ranges from Chinese and Vietnamese street food to menus full of freshly caught seafood. Wash your food down with some craft beer from one of the city's microbreweries.

Where should I stay in Vancouver?

Book a hotel in Yaletown and you can enjoy the delights of one of the chicest districts in Vancouver. Independent stores, pavement cafes and little galleries exhibiting the works of local artists make up its charm. For cool Vancouver though, look for hotel deals in the Main Street area. Once gritty and industrial, it is fast becoming the coolest and hippest part of town. The Olympic Village and Science World are here while there are always exhibits of street art leftover from the annual mural festival. History lovers will find the old Vancouver of the pioneer era in the Gastown and Chinatown neighbourhoods. Gastown is full of cobbled streets while its historic buildings are being taken over by independent shops and restaurants. Historic Chinatown is changing rapidly into a modern residential space. Staying here gives you a mix of living like a local and experiencing the city's history.
