If you're wanting to explore shops in Vancouver without being in a mall.. this is the place to come. Skip Metrotown, Pacific Center and Tsawassen Mills. Also don't go to Gastown for shopping..all there is in Gastown are souvenir shops. Robson has it all. Start at one end (probably near BC Place) and go up one side of the street,... More

This review is a bit biased because we went over Boxing week so the crowds were absolutely horrendous. Obviously full of bargain hunters, tourists, and locals trying to skirt around the slower moving traffic. The shops are all common to any major city in Canada. The mom and pop shops have all been encompassed by the brand name stores which... More

In the early years this was coined "Robson-strasse". Very european in stores/restaurants. Too close to downtown to survive that era. Now very Trendy, high-end boutique$, designer outlet$. If you are shopping for that image. Go for it! A few decent restaraunts. But also quick walk from downtown. Give it check if high-end shopping is on your list.

Robson Street is Vancouver's vibrant shopping mall with all the usual High Street brands (many from the UK like The Body Shop, GAP etc) which are open every day. Frequent sales and comparatively low prices make this a very attractive place to browse. Shops are interspersed with lots of coffee shops and restaurants as well as a few hotels, transport... More

Robson Street is very central, great for shopping and/or eating. I personally recommend visiting the public library and Five Guys

During our stay in Vancouver we experienced many aspects of Robson Street from its diverswe restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and the people who walk the street. Worth walking it, stopping at a bar to watch the vibrant life that flows through it but any which way worth a look and the experience

I stayed at a hotel on Robson during the holidays and I like it a lot. It is definitely hustling and bustling! If you like being in an area where it's vibrant and there's plenty of activity then this is the place to be. Amazingly, the room we stayed at was facing the street but we did not encounter disruptive... More

It is a street with the biggest Victoria secret and Prada store I have ever seen. It is very clean as well as it has great variety of shops from clothing to nutrition. I have not yet met a stuff in any of these shops that would not be helpful and of positive attitude

Robson Street is one of the trendy shopping streets in Vancouver. Now days it caters mostly to young adults. A number of top end designer stores have opened on Alberni St, a parallel street, near the Burrard end of the street.

Where most business are for Dining and Shopping, Robson Street should be great, most dining is casual though.
