Product description

"This brand new edition provides a comprehensive and highly visual introduction to the lively city of Vancouver, bringing its history, places and local people to life at the turn of a page.

The 'Places' section provides a detailed, district-by-district exploration of all the places to visit, from Midtown and West End to North and West Vancouver. All the principal sites along the way are clearly cross-referenced by number to the full-colour maps found throughout the guide.

Expanded and updated restaurant listings feature the best eateries to suit all budgets within each area, providing the address, phone number, opening times and price range, followed by a useful review.

There are also recommended excursions for those wanting to explore the natural beauty that surrounds the city, covering Victoria and Vancouver Island, North to Whistler and more.

A new section of Editor's Top Tips illustrates everything you can't afford to miss, including lesser-known attractions, walks, and activities for children, as well as money-saving hints.

Expert writers provide authoritative essays on the city's history and interesting features on everything from 'Flora and Fauna' and 'The Great Outdoors' to 'Vancouver's Beaches' and 'Modern Architecture'.

A fully-indexed street atlas enables instant orientation and a transport map will help you navigate around the city with ease. The comprehensive 'Travel Tips' section provides all the essential information you'll need for a hassle-free holiday, covering accommodation for all budgets, transport, activities and useful booking information, plus a handy A-Z of further practical advice and contact details.

The unique combination of insightful exploration alongside practical advice makes this guide a fascinating background read and invaluable on-the-spot companion."

Book pages are in very good condition with no apparent evidence of use.
Book cover is in very good condition apart from feint indentation of writing on the front cover.
