Vancouver's beauty is legendary. The sleek and shiny skyscrapers of downtown's commercial district stand in striking contrast to the jutting mountains that lie behind, providing a spectacular, natural backdrop to this cosmopolitan setting. Set along miles of beach and coastline, Vancouver has excellent access to nature, adventure and sport, as well as the urban edge of a city with almost two million inhabitants. The residents are part of the city's charm, with a distinctive West-Coast vibe that's both relaxed and very friendly.

As well as being known as an area of outstanding natural beauty, Vancouver is also a culinary hot-spot. The abundant seafood, free to roam the wilds of British Columbia until it lands on your plate, is exquisite, while a multi-cultural population means a wealth of authentic international cuisines. There are over 700 sushi bars and restaurants in the area, and the Chinatown (home to some of the best dim sum outside of China) is one of the largest in North Ameā€¦
