  • Vancouver offers much to see for Olympic travelers

    2010-01-11

    Over the next month many people will be heading to the Canadian province of British Columbia to witness the 2010 winter Olympics. The 21st Winter Olympiad should draw millions of spectators from around the globe to the city of Vancouver, and once inside many may find it hard to leave.

    Situated on the Pacific Coast, Vancouver has gained a reputation as a highly cosmopolitan city, full of art galleries, fine dining and easy access to nature paths and mountainous escapes.

    Nature lovers can enjoy a stroll through Dr. Sun Yat-Sen's classical Chinese garden. Styled after the famed gardens of the Ming Dynasty, the garden boasts beautiful foliage, complimentary Chinese tea services and a vibrant koi pond filled with colorful fish and precocious turtles.

    Travelers looking to get a feel for their surroundings might enjoy a trip to the Vancouver Lookout, a 50-story obelisk that provides a 360-degree view of the city, the scenic North Shore Mountains and - on clear days - Vancouver Island.

    With several million international visitors each year, Vancouver has developed a wide palette of international cuisine ranging from Spanish-style tapas bars to Japanese Izakaya.
