Vancouver is jovial and inviting, large but projects tranquility. It is a city with many attractions and great charm. Whether you are going for a couple of weeks or for a few days only, I share with you several attractions in Vancouver that you cannot miss, they are points that you will or will want a photo of.
To start, I will tell you how to get from Vancouver Airport to Pacific Central (train and subway station in the city center). The most expensive option is to go by taxi, and the most popular and cheapest is by train. Using this transfer method is very simple and will cost you just CAD 9 per person or CAD 9.75 if you buy a full-day transportation ticket for unlimited travel.
At the airport look for the signs to “Canada Line”, right at their station are the machines to buy the ticket (9CAD). If you want the ticket to travel by public transport all day (including the transfer from the airport), you must go to the domestic arrivals terminal, there is a 7-Eleven where you can buy the Day Pass for CAD 9.75.
My next recommendation is to look for a central hotel, because that way you will have a lot of places to visit within walking distance; the English Bay area is one of my favorites to stay.
To get around the city you can use public transport, which is very efficient, as well as the Aquabus that reaches strategic points. Another option is to rent a bicycle, which you can upload on public transport when you go far.
