Public transport in Vancouver
||Only being a half Island it is located in the middle
of Vancouver. It has all kinds of art stores, boutiques and a big
indoor market to offer. If the sun is shining you can just sit outside,
enjoy the water and listen to one of the musicians. There is also
a lot of food to eat, from all over the world.
||The oldest part of Vancouver with a famous steam clock.
Learn about "Gassy Jack" who become name father of Gastown

One of the biggest attractions is capilano bridge (therefore
it's quite expensive).

bridge with no entrance fee in Lynns Canyon http://www.dnv.org/ecology/index.htm
Activities in and around Vancouver downtown
||For a day you can get a daypass for the public transport.
Take a ride to the various districts of the city. E.g. Kitsilano
has a nice beach and many cute stores and cafes. Or to chinatown
with the worlds second biggest chinese population outside of china.
Walk to Yaletown where the urban yuppies live, or to the financial
district to see the big and quite stunning skyscrapers.
||For some nature in the big city, you should check
out stanley park, North America's second largest urban park. There
is a path that goes all the way around the park (about 9km) alongside
the coast line. We do not recomend walking there at night, as it
is quite dangerous to walk anywhere in Vancouver where there are
no bright lights ie. parks, alleys, dark streets, etc...after 10pm.
||Take a stroll along Robson Street, the most known
shopping street in Vancouver. If you don't feel like shopping, have
a coffee and people watch. There are lots of heated outdoor patios,
so that you can sit outside all year long.
||Spend a day on one of Vancouver's sandy beaches while
playing some beach volleyball or relaxing. Swimming is not really
recommended due to pollution. But there is a swimming pool that
is directly at the ocean. Then you feel like you're swimming in
the ocean but have the advantage of being in an outdoor pool
||visit a museum. E.g Scienceworld (http://www.scienceworld.bc.ca)
