Montreal is one of the most diverse cities in North America. It fuses old with new, European culture with American culture, sports with concerts... The official language of Montreal (and all of Quebec in general) is French, but its residents speak fluent English as well. Montreal, which sits on an island, is considered the most romantic city in Canada. It is the biggest city in Quebec (the second largest in all of Canada) and is the second largest French-speaking city in the world. Montreal is also a harbour city and an important financial hub of Canada. Thanks to Expo 67 and the 1976 Olympics which took place in this city, it developed greatly. Its tourist areas were carefully planned, helping create a spacious, modern, pleasant city.
Many Vancouver is a dynamic, bustling, modern city. It is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world – and rightly so. It is nicknamed “the crown jewel of western Canada” due to its fantastic location between tall mountains and bays dotted with countless islands and the Pacific Ocean. It has a great combination of natural wilderness, well cared for parks and city scenery which includes skyscrapers, interesting architecture, and unique neighbourhoods and marketplaces. It’s no wonder the Conde Nast Traveller magazine picked Vancouver as one of the top ten cities to visit in the world.
This is the biggest shopping centre in the world.
The city of Edmonton is in Western Canada is the state of Alberta (it is the capital of the state). It is not far from Jasper, the charming national park in the Canadian Rockies. Edmonton is a pleasant and welcoming city but its number one attraction is undoubtedly West Edmonton Mall – the biggest shopping centre in the world! Truly heaven for shoppers.
In the Canadian Rocky Mountains, there is a variety of different lodging styles available: Hotels, bed & breakfasts, holiday apartments, and camping sites. Most of the hotels are pretty pricey (compared to standard hotel and motel prices in other areas in Canada and the US), and while camping is definitely an experience, it’s not for everyone (especially considering the fact that even in the height of summer it might rain heavily).
Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, is a cosmopolitan city with the atmosphere of a small town. Also known as “garden city”, Victoria is full of gardens and parks. It has the best weather in all of Canada and is so charming that 3.5 tourists visit it every year. The city combines British history and traditions with the culture of the natives who lived there in the early days. This can be seen in the Victorian-style buildings standing next to parks decorated with totem poles. There is no other city in the world where you can go whale-watching during the day and come back home in time to drink English tea in one of the many tea houses in town..
