Canada, British Columbia, Vancouver, August 10, 2011
Vancouver is a coastal seaport city on the mainland of British Columbia, Canada. It is the hub of Greater Vancouver, which, with over 2.3 million residents, is the third most populous metropolitan area in the country, and the most populous in Western Canada.
Vancouver's Downtown is a unique place. Situated on the coast, it is surrounded by mountains. Numerous seaplanes and boats, containerships and ferries go here and there in the harbour all the time. Vancouver's skyline is said to be one of the most beautiful among modern cities.
"You’re gorgeous, baby, you’re sophisticated, you live well...Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool North American sibling." – The New York Times
"Vancouver is a city unlike any other. Wherever I look, I see water or mountains -- or both. And everyone looks so healthy." – The Daily Telegraph (UK)
