Here we talk about the information for visitors in Vancouver.There are several neighborhoods worth exploring while you’re in town.Downtown is framed by English Bay and Coal Harbour,and is full of Asian restaurants,big-name shops,and shimmering skyscrapers.Gastown is the city’s oldest neighborhood,and it’s home to grand historic buildings and fashion boutiques.Kitsilano is a happening area on the west side,known for the young and stylish crowd it attracts at its organic restaurants and popular Kits Beach.
Vancouver’s public transportation system is called TransLink:it provides a way for visitors to get to attractions by using public transportation.The system is made up of a large network of buses as well as SkyTrain.Buses run throughout the day with a more limited NightBus service during the night.Many buses travel down Burrard Street,Georgia Street,and Granville Street.The SkyTrain is a completely automated light rail transit system.It provides fast service between downtown Vancouver and its suburbs:trains run every two to five minutes.
In addition to the buses and SkyTrain,TransLink operates the SeaBus.It is a passenger only ferry service the runs between the Waterfront Station in downtown Vancouver to Lonsdale Quay on the North Shore.Ferries depart every 15 minutes during the day and every 30 minutes at night.The trip only takes 12 minutes,but this crossing of Burrard Inlet gives passengers stunning views of the mountains,the sea,and the city.There are two companies,Aquabus and False Creek Ferries,that operate small passenger ferries that cross False Creek.
