Neighbourhoods
Vancouver’s oldest neighborhood and today, the district retains its historic charm and independent spirit. Victorian architecture houses a thriving fashion scene, impeccably curated décor boutiques, one-of-a-kind galleries and some of the best culinary fare in Vancouver. It’s a gathering place for stylish locals and an ideal neighbourhood to explore on foot. Gastown lies along the north of the downtown Vancouver peninsula, from Richards east to Main Street, and south to Hastings Street.

Just over the Burrard Bridge from the downtown peninsula, the neighbourhood brings together a collection of attractions, beach and parks, residential streets, and a couple of main commercial districts. “Kits,” as it’s known locally, is bordered by the waterfront to the north and West 16th Ave to the south; Burrard Street to the east and Alma Street to the west. Most of the commercial activity is along West 4th Avenue and West Broadway, but you’ll also find shops and restaurants in the areas close to the beach.

Совет по городу

Что взять с собой
Always bring an Umbrella
Vancouver weather can go quickly up and down especially with the rain. An umbrella will help you a lot!
Что взять с собой
Best way to explore Downtown is by walking - Good shoes
You can walk from one side of Downtown to the other side and you will get to experience all the streets and hidden gems. Even though Downtown Vancouver isn't as big compared to other cities, it is still a lot of walking.
Как сэкономить
Eat on the Cheap
Vancouver’s food scene is exciting but it can take a bite out of your budget. If you get hungry, then fill up on cheap and healthy sushi rolls. Japanese restaurants are as plentiful as Starbucks in Vancouver. Even the most hole-in-the-wall sushi joints tend to be not too shabby. Try the tiny Yamato restaurant to get the best sushi at the lowest price in Downtown. Shizen-ya is the best option for cheap and healthy sushi. They use sprouted organic brown rice in all their meals so you can feel good about that.

Visit Swanky Hotels & Restaurants - While Saving
If you have your heart set on visiting one of the swanky hotels or restaurants, drop by for Happy Hour. Since liquor laws were relaxed recently, Happy Hour specials have taken off in the last couple of years. Plenty of bars and restaurants have discounted food and drink items before their dinner rush. Catch Happy Hour at Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House to try a classic Vancouver restaurant on the cheap.

Drop the Taxi
With no Uber in Vancouver the other option is Taxi. BUT there’s no need to drive in Vancouver. The city has no highway system and traffic is notoriously bad. Fortunately, the transit system in Vancouver is a cheap and effective way to get around. Day passes are available for less than $10 and will get you anywhere in the city all day long. For bus timetables and routes, download a free app like Transit.
Транспорт
Public Transport is The Way To Go
The Canada Line is a monorail line connecting the airport with the city so you can easily be in Downtown within 30 minutes Taxis are expensive and Vancouver still doesn’t have ride-sharing like Uber and Lyft. The transit system in Vancouver is a cheap and effective way to get around. Day passes are available for less than $10 and will get you anywhere in the city all day long.

Vancouver City Hop On Off Tour
This is a great way of getting around and visiting different areas in downtown. You can control your own time and decide how long you would like to stop one place and just catch another buss further.
