Vancouver

Vancouver

Vancouver, B.C., is one those beautiful, "full of energy" cities that captures a person's heart and imagination immediately. Canada's third largest city, it sits on a peninsular bordered by English Bay and the Pacific Ocean to the west, and it is hemmed in by a spectacular mountain range. Water is the defining element here, whether in the daily rituals of the Seabus taking commuters downtown, water sport teams training at False Creek, people relaxing in the surrounding marinas and bays, fishermen selling their catches downtown, people living on houseboats, or the port itself, where more than 300 cruisers, 70 million tons of cargo and a number of seaplanes and helicopters transit annually. With a little more than a century of history, Vancouver is a young and cosmopolitan city. Its 2 million inhabitants neatly reflect its mixed heritage. Wandering through the city streets, one discovers all sorts of different ethnic origins in the passing faces, totem poles scattered throughout the city, "veddy British" lawn bowling at Stanley Park, and North America's second largest Chinatown. 05/08DE JSCA 52 min.
