What do Pamela Anderson, Michael Bublé and Michael J Fox have in common? Their home town Vancouver. While they may have moved on to Hollywood (although Bublé still has a base in the city), there are plenty of trendy locals that remain in the city, perfecting coffee brews and setting up creative bars. Book your Melbourne to Vancouver flights with Student Flights and enjoy a hip city stay in Canada.
Much of Vancouver’s trendy action takes place in Yaletown, a waterfront suburb that over the years has transformed from a warehouse district to a precinct filled with sidewalk cafes, bars and boutiques. Depending on your interests, browse modern masterpieces at the Contemporary Art Gallery or visit Yaletown’s famous Brewery where you can quench your thirst on beers made right on site. Once you explore the streets, take a seat at one of the cafes at Library Square for some local food and fantastic people watching.
If food is your thing, then you won’t want to miss a trip to Granville Island, Vancouver’s mecca for fresh and organic produce. The public farmer’s market is the island’s biggest attraction and a hive of constant activity. The market touts pretty much everything and anything, and has a strong focus on fresh and seasonal produce.
