Well it's a must - you have Murchies, Munro's Books, Roger's Chocolates, The cigarette store (just to look) - some excellent restaurants - so much people watching - the best.

We stayed at the Empress so we simply walked out the door and chose to turn left or right that day. There was always something to do, see, eat and enjoy. The first thing we noticed was how clean the city is. No trash or liter and very well kept.

Nice walk with a variety of stores and eateries. Service varies from eating place to eating place.. if you are really hungry order early at Irish Times.

Well run and organized. If you have all your documents and ArriveCan in order if a US citizen the process goes very quickly. We booked a round trip package with a room the night before departure at the 7Cedars Casino. The 7Cedars was a very nice hotel. The food is pretty good there as well. We would stay there again as the rooms are very nice, clean, and quiet.

We started at the inner harbour area and worked our way slowly to Chinatown, exploring the shops and historic buildings and stopping for a bite to eat along the way! Largely pedestrianised, it’s very pleasant for walking and there is plenty to see.

an interesting building to visit and some history on view so good for half an hour but some security to go through. I would recommend if fed up with shopping and caffeine

We only explored the south-central section, where the Legislature, Royal BC Museum, and Empress Hotel are located. This part is indeed spectacular, with the boats in the marina, and the ferries coming and going.
