5) The Grouse Mountain Skyride will have you soaring high above the forest
This is the most extensive aerial tramway system in North America and is a great way to enjoy views of Vancouver, the nearby islands, and the mountains. The 1,600-metre ride takes you to the summit of Grouse Mountain, and one of the attractions of the ride is the chance to enjoy the changing seasons. You’ll enjoy a panorama of snow-topped mountain peaks and forests in winter, while the forests of Douglas firs are just as picturesque during summer.
6) Sample some delicious and traditional dim sum in Chinatown
Dim sum are appetizers such as bowls of uniquely flavored soup, small dumplings, steamed buns and sweet items, and one of the best places to sample them is in Vancouver’s thriving Chinatown. Chinatown has dozens of tempting restaurants, although a walk through the area after your meal will show you what else this culturally rich district has to offer.
