Vancouver, Canada, 2017

In May, 2017, I spent six days exploring the cultural and natural highlights of Vancouver in the province of British Columbia in Canada. The trip coincides with the 150th anniversary of Canada's Confederation in 1867.

After arriving in the city, I stayed in the Listel Hotel on Robson Street in the West End neighborhood. Downtown Vancouver is crowded with beautiful high-rise buildings containing offices and residences.

Capilano Suspension Bridge Park

The very popular Capilano Suspension Bridge Park attracts hundreds of visitors on the weekday day I visited. It is a rather touristy experience, but still definitely worth a visit. The 450-feet long suspension bridge sways from side-to-side as people walk across it.
