1938 W 4th Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J 1M5, Canada
I’m not ashamed to admit that I am a little obsessed with the fermented sausage salad that’s on the menu at chef Angus An’s extraordinary Thai restaurant on West 4th. Chef An and his team offer up an exciting blend of traditional Thai dishes given...

1995 Cornwall Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J 1C9, Canada
This cute spot in Kitsilano is one of my go-to places for great meal after I’ve been sunning myself on Kits beach, and they even have a tiny patio outside. I recommend the ‘Omakase’ menu – which roughly translates as the chef’s choice, and usually...

350 Carrall St, Vancouver, BC V6B 2J3, Canada
Pidgin may be known for their deceptively simple East-meets-West Asian-inspired menu with a decidedly French edge, but their cocktails are all kinds of fantastic too, and in a casual but cool spot like this, it’s most fun to combine the two. Try...

We went to Vij's in Vancouver after we heard several friends recommend it. It could not have been more welcoming. We waited outside in line for fifteen minutes before they opened, but it was worth the wait. We were welcomed with warm chai in...

6 Powell St, Vancouver, BC V6A 1E9, Canada
A clandestine spot to imbibe in Gastown, the Diamond is the speakeasy when you're in Vancouver. Bar none, one of the best bars I have been to on recommendation from Nathan at Judas Goat. They will make you anything here, like a tasty pisco sour....

Vancouver, BC V6Z 2R8, Canada
One of the best ways to see Vancouver is from the water, and unless you have a friend with a boat, the best (and cheapest) way to do that is by buying an all-day pass on False Creek Ferries which allows you to hop on and off all day long. The...

Baden Powell Trail, North Vancouver, BC V7G 1V6, Canada
The hike to The Quarry Rock lookout starts in the village of Deep Cove. The 1.9 km path (one way) winds its way along the Baden-Powell trail and ends with wonderful views of Deep Cove and the eastern side of Vancouver. The trail is well-marked and...

162 Water St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1B2, Canada
They serve comfort dishes here, but the simplicity is deceptive. The burger, for instance, is made from bacon, brisket, and chuck. Cocktails are an experience: Order absinthe and they will bring out the proper bohemian barware so you can party...

45 Blood Alley Square, Vancouver, BC V6B 1C7, Canada
This little hideaway in a back alley, with its communal tables and chalkboard menus, is where I go with friends when we want to share snacks. They match wines to "tasting trios" selected from their cheese and charcuterie cellar. It’s best to let...

370 Cambie St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1H7, Canada
Like the name says: just braised or slow-roasted meats, served on ciabatta buns. They are known for their hand-carved porchetta, but I order the daily special—that is, if I can get there before 2 p.m. The restaurant is first come, first served, so...

350 W Cordova St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1E8, Canada
Jennifer MacKay’s clothing boutique is the go-to store for fashionable locals, who know they’ll find pieces exclusively in her shop. I have a weakness for the shoes. (604) 685-8885. As told to Rhonda May. This appeared in the September, 2012...

320 W Cordova St, Vancouver, BC V6B 1E8, Canada
It’s hard to visit Old Faithful and not immediately start planning how you’ll manage to afford absolutely everything in this wildly desirable modern day general store, from elegant pencils from Public Supply and Tuthilltown Bourbon barrel maple...

Vancouver, BC V6G 3E2, Canada
It's 22km long, but you don't have to do all of it. We started at the and walked a short section from Cardero Park to Canada Place, and in that time we saw a dozen sea planes take off and land, not to mention a cruise liner head off on its way to...

750 Hornby St, Vancouver, BC V6Z 2H7, Canada
The Vancouver Art Gallery is always the first, or last, place I visit when I stop in the West Coast city. This image was taken during one of its best international exhibits—the Surrealism exhibit with classic works by Dali, Ernst, Breton,...

1669 Johnston St, Vancouver, BC V6H 3R9, Canada
Granville Island Market was pulsing with energy from musicians, tourists, and a frenzy of food markets. After living in a desert region for so long, it was awesome to get a hold of fresh fish, fresh fruit, and the German sausage was pretty amazing...

The locals aren't lying, it rains in Vancouver. A lot. But, instead of moaning and groaning about it, hike up your splash pants and try to catch some of that wild weather on camera! One of the best places to see cloud formations and the patterns...

639 Hornby St, Vancouver, BC V6C 2G3, Canada
No visit to coastal British Columbia is complete without some immersion into Northwest Coast Canadian Indian art. If you don’t have a chance to get to the UBC Museum of Anthropology or to the Royal BC Museum in Victoria (or even if you do), do not...

8501 Stanley Park Dr, Vancouver, BC V6G 3E2, Canada
Vancouver has two really fabulous outdoor, public, beachside swimming pools, which are great places to cool off in the summer. I love Second Beach Pool in Stanley Park becuase of the views of English Bay and all the kids it attracts. The pool is...

Vancouver, BC, Canada
The city's very own mountain soars above the Downtown core, just 20 minutes drive away from town. If you're feeling active try the 'Grouse Grind', a punishing 2.9-kilometre trail up the face of Grouse Mountain, commonly referred to as “Mother...

511 Carrall St, Vancouver, BC V6B 2J8, Canada
Style goddess Erin Templeton’s Storefront/Studio is in Vancouver's historic Chinatown and a must-visit for lovers of her one of a kind, new and recycled leather bags and accessories. I’ve picked up a few of Erin’s beautiful pieces in the sales...

3715 Main St, Vancouver, BC V5V 3N8, Canada
I adore this little boutique on Main Street that’s simply stuffed with gorgeously girly styles and flirty retro clothes. You can find plenty of Canadian designers here too, and there’s an especially good selection in the jewelry section. While you...
