        Three days trip to Vancouver

One of my favorite things about travel is having the opportunity to see good friends who live far away , moreover it gives me the opportunity to make new friends. It would be fare to introduce myself first , I am Asheesh lives in Chandigarh , fond of travelling . I still can remember my last tip to Vancouver , Canada was one of the best I have ever had. In January I and my best friend (Amit) went to Vancouver. We started from Chandigarh at 1’o clock after having our lunch and as far as I remember we reached at New Delhi Bus Stop at 5:15 PM. From bus stop we take a metro to the airport and within half an hour we reached at the airport. After crossing through all the checkpoints finally we are inn at 6:30 PM well in the plane. Once we are in the plane we have been told that it is a long journey and will take approximately 14 hours to reach Vancouver, so be relax and feel comfortable. I still remember when I heard a woke up call from the crew to tighten our seat belt as we are landing at Vancouver International Airport , it was 9’O clock by my watch. As we have a limited time to spent in the city so we hire a taxi from the airport to Stanley Park.

Stanley Park

The most famous park in Vancouver is Stanley Park. You can drive the perimeter road, walk, Rollerblade or cycle the seawall (5.5 miles) play tennis, pitch & putt, hike the many trails or have your photograph taken beside the totem poles. There is a children's playground, a miniature railway and a children's farmyard. There are formal gardens such as the rose garden and the rhododendron garden. Our visit to the park was really refreshing and at that moment I still remember was feeling very energetic. From there we went to the restaurant and had a lunch there.

Canada Place

From there we went to the Canada Place , Canada Place is really one of the astonishing places located at Vancouver. You might be thinking what really is Canada Place, So , let me clear it is basically a cruise ship with an embedded hotel inside and an extreme engineering architecture. It is a lovers point and a perfect place for dating or taking pictures.

Vancouver Aquarium

In the evening when we came back were feeling very tired , I went to the bed after having dinner while Amit watched the TV. In the morning when I woke up Amit told me that Vancouver Aquarium is one of the famous place in Vancouver , and after having our breakfast we directly move to the Vancouver Aquarium.

Vancouver Aquarium is offers a great attraction containing more than 100,000 creatures from all over the planet. It also contains 10 million liters of water which is recorded as the aquarium containing water with highest quantity all over the world. In the evening we went to the Minter Garden which is half an hour drive from there .

As we are left with only one day in our kitty of holidays so we decided that on Monday , third day of our trip we will cover maximum places, that day we went to Historic Gas town , Capilano Suspension Bridge, Chinatown and to the science world.

Telus World

In the evening went to the market and went to the shopping mall over there , you found the shopping centre and restaurants in abundance. When we reach home I started to pack my luggage as we have been granted a tourist visa for only three days. In the evening we sleep early as our flight is scheduled in the early morning at 4’O clock. At 7:00 Pm in the evening I reached New Delhi , from there we hire a cab for bus stop and luckily we got the ticket easily for Chandigarh. And finally we reached Chandigarh at 12:30 in the midnight . I also went with Amit as his home is near the bus stop , Truly this was one of the best tour of my life.
