Lonely Planet Vancouver City Guide
"Lonely Planet guidebooks are, quite simply, like no others." -- New York Times
Find the beating heart of British Columbia, with Lonely Planet’s Vancouver City Guide on your iPhone. ‘Vansterdam’ is truly a blessed city: fringed by spectacular mountains, famously laid-back and tolerant, and now gearing up for the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympics, it’s just so hot right now. So, whether it’s the historic sights of Gastown, the bohemian boltholes of SoMa, or the heady heights of Grouse Mountain, our resident author has clocked up over 500 hours of research to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
What’s your pleasure? People-watching in Stanley Park? High-caffeine culture in Commercial Drive? Modern masters at the Vancouver Arts Gallery? Sun-baking on Second Beach? Whatever your thing, wherever you find yourself, this City Guide can set you straight. Just check your location on our intelligent maps, search for the ideal diversion in your area, and you can’t miss. And all our famous content – including chapters on history, culture, language and eating out, gorgeous images, walking tours, local lore and much more – is there too. Essential!
