Hit boutiques and bars in Gastown with Lonely Planet Vancouver & Victoria city guide

Lonely Planet is your passport to Vancouver & Victoria, with amazing travel experiences and the best planning advice.

Vancouver & Victoria city guide

Hit boutiques and bars in Gastown, stroll along tree-fringed Stanley Park Seawall, and stock up on picnic supplies at Granville Island Public Market; all with your trusted travel companion.

Lonely Planet writer John Lee describes why he loves Vancouver & Victoria. "Forest trails, tiny hummingbirds and sunset-hugging beaches framed by ocean and mountain panoramas. I moved here 20 years ago, but I've never taken my eyes off Vancouver's unwavering natural charms. For me, it's this breathtaking backdrop that sets the glass-towered metropolis apart. But I'm still an urban lad and I've also enjoyed watching Vancouver become a grown-up city. From adventurous dining to thriving arts and culture, this young West Coast community keeps moving forward - and I don't just mean the delicious craft-beer scene (although, personally, that really helps)."
