Vancouver is a very pretty, clean, big, and fun city. It seems to me 50% Asian on the street and sometimes you will spot young people in Japanese street-style. Asian culture is influencing this city, especially food. You also will see many Chinese Warrior statues around the town. Talking about food, it is very good here. There are a lot of food trucks around ( they even have a Dim Sum food struck) and you’ll be surprised how good their food is. Here are some restaurants I highly recommend. Kamei Royale-it’s casual Japanese cuisine, while Miku and Hapa Izakaya are more unique. Kirin is a Chinese restaurant specializing in dim sum style- best quality dim sum. Cin Cin is a great Italian wood fired cucina, if you’re tired of Asian food. Western style restaurants around Vancouver Convention Center have good food but not excellent, although they have a beautiful view of waterfront and harbor (fun area). Oh! Don’t miss Bella Gelateria, a ice-cream store, it has got 2012 best ice-cream award in Florence Ice-cream Festival. I gained 6 pounds because of their ice-cream, my favorite flavor was black sesame-so yummy! Also, I really like the modern architecture here, there are many cool buildings around. Vancouver is a fun city and there are a lot of cool activities for you to do. You could get on “Hop-on Hop-off” buses (it’s everywhere), harbor cruises, seaplanes tour, river rafting, whale watching,..or spend your day at Grouse Mountain (great zip-lining here).
