An unexpected dump of snow hit Metro Vancouver when we visited the city. Vancouver was on the brink of setting a record for the snowiest December. We founded in Vancouver a dynamic, multicultural city set in a spectacular natural environment. Their landscape with majestic mountains and a sparkling ocean make Vancouver one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is without doubt the perfect spot for active people loving outdoors and adventure.
We visited the Vancouver 2010 venues: the Vancouver Olympic/Paralympic Centre, the Pacific Colyseum, the Canada Hockey Place and the UBC Thunderbird Arena, the BC Place Stadium (the site for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games and the Opening Ceremony for the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games), the Main Media Centre (located in the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre on Vancouver’s downtown waterfront and currently under works that will be completed in 2009 tripling the size of the existing convention centre), and the building works of the Vancouver's Olympic and Paralympic Village, located on the southeast side of False Creek.
PS: Thanks to a consistently advantageous exchange rate on the Canadian dollar, we had a world-class experience in some restaurants, specially japanese.
