What\\\'s your favourite city? Thats never an easy question but with London, Paris,San Francisco,New York, Madrid,Rome etc all competing to win your favouritism, coming in to land at Vancouver International Airport,it becomes easy to understand why so many people have been seduced by Canada\'s third-largest city. Although the reasons themselves have little to do with urban development the favouritism is more to do with its immediate proximity to the sparkling Pacific Ocean, pretty city centre with awesome shopping, bars and restaurants, friendliness, fabulous and reasonably priced central hotels, the beautiful Gulf Islands just a hop and a skip to the west and the snow-capped Coast Mountains immediately to the north. The airport itself is a symbol for Vancouver at its best. Its expansive, airy international lounges showcase displays of West Coast art, bubbling waterfall features and even an aquarium wall. The ambience is serene and friendly.

You might also glimpse the vast expanse of Stanley Park, the largest city park in North America, a short stroll from the West End; miles of easily accessible beaches and a city skyline that\'s straining to challenge the big boys in stature and shiny self-belief. Norman Foster, Arthur Erickson and James Cheng all put up buildings before the Winter Olympics came to town in 2010, an occasion that galvanised Vancouver and also gave rise to a glittering range of Olympic sporting facilities which augments its wonderful shopping options!

The Games had been the impetus for substantial improvements on the scenic Sea-to-Sky Highway, which connects Vancouver with its co-host Whistler, 100 kilometres (60 miles) to the north. The Canada Line, a new metro line that connects the southern suburb of Richmond with the airport and the downtown core opened late 2009. building boom and the Olympic success all speak of a city brimming with optimism and pride – with good reason – Vancouver is regularly named as one of the world\'s most liveable cities and most Vancouverites believe this to be true. It\'s a young, healthy, cosmopolitan place with a positive attitude towards diversity (there is a large and growing Asian community here) and a lot of lip service paid towards the environment with Vancouver being the birthplace of Greenpeace.Its just a great place to be in and be seen in.

Vancouver is a beautiful 21st-century city with a lot going for it, with so much to see and do, so we recommend a visit when you are off to Whistler, skiing, or at any other time if exploring beautiful British Columbia.
