Description

Surrounded by mountains and ocean, Vancouver is a juxtaposition of steel skyscrapers with old growth forest, towering coast mountains with the Pacific Ocean. It began as a nineteenth-century mill town, boomed with prospectors and adventurers during the Klondike gold rush, and hosted millions of visitors at the 1986 World Exposition. Today, Canada's third largest city is a thriving centre for international trade. Filmmakers flock to local sites and executives from Europe and Asia book downtown hotels. For travelers, Vancouver offers sports events and cultural performances as well as unequalled recreation. Visitors and locals alike can stroll through Stanley Park, ski nearby peaks or sail in English Bay. About the Canada series: As expansive as Canada itself, this outstanding series captures outstanding views of panoramic landscapes, brilliant city skylines, and picturesque communities. Each volume focuses on a city or province and features 96 pages and 70 stunning images by internationally renowned photographers, plus descriptive captions.
