In the three block stretch between Burrard and Jervis you will find a commercial mecca which includes premier fashions stores, fine dining, services and all the amenities of a world-class metropolis. Then you're off through the residential skyscrapers of Coal Harbour heading for a stop at the Rose Garden in beautiful Stanley Park. Here you can soak up the fragrance of over 50 varieties of roses set amidst a larger, landscaped garden of perennials, annuals and bulbs that slope down the causeway to the Stanley Park Pavilion.

Then step into the world of 15th Century China at the world-renowned Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. See graceful wing-roofed pagodas set amidst trees, ponds, bridges and rockeries, an oasis of calm in the midst of bustling Chinatown. Gastown evokes the rugged charm of the 1860s. Its most famous landmark is the steam-powered clock, built as part of the city's steam-heating system. The district, once a rough-and-ready gathering place for loggers, fishermen and seamen, has grown into a hip mix of old and new.
