Vancouver sits on the Pacific coast of Canada’s province of British Colombia. At times, it is shrouded by the mist of the neighbouring temperate rainforest, and the city is known for its beautiful parks and greenspaces. Book a flight to Vancouver with Fiji Airways and its codeshare partners and see for yourself why this city is consistently ranked as one of the world’s most liveable.
Things to do in Vancouver
- Go for a hike or a bike ride in Stanley Park. It is one of the largest city parks in the world, and reflects the natural environment of the region. Paths and trails snake through tall trees and around pristine beaches.
- Explore Gastown, the city’s first neighbourhood. There, get a bite to eat at one of the many independent bars or restaurants, and walk along the old cobblestone streets.
- Gather the ingredients for a perfect picnic at the Granville Island Public Market. The large covered market also features a food-court, so you can also eat there while taking in the lively atmosphere.
- Learn about the city’s history at the Museum of Vancouver, its maritime heritage at the Vancouver Maritime Museum, or simply appreciate some fine works at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
