Built on the delta of the Fraser River, in the Georgia Strait, the city is immersed in nature. The giant-pine forests breathe fresh air, the deep-blue Pacific brings life and the dazzling white peaks of the North Shore Mountains pierce the starry sky. Even the bustling centre of the largest city in British Columbia feels somehow in harmony with its environment.
Locals often say that in Vancouver, you can do everything in one day: ski in the morning, have lunch in Chinatown, play golf or enjoy the beach in the afternoon and treat yourself to spicy Indian dishes for dinner! Vancouver’s incredible ethnic and cultural mosaic is enhanced by the friendliness of its inhabitants. Thanks to its geographical location, the city has experienced a significant development of its port, industry and overall economy.
