WANDERING IN WESTERN CANADA – VANCOUVER x WHISTLER

canada-post-1-2

Late September, we boarded an Air Transat flight to Vancouver for a two-week road trip through Western Canada.

GENERALITIES :

FLIGHT :

Air Transat is nowadays the cheapest company to reach the North American continent ! The flights are regular and frequent, and there are rates for everybody. It cost us a total of 900$ round trip.

CAR RENTAL :

Staying at the hotel/motel in Canada is prohibitively expensive, and renting a campervan is only “interesting” if you make a one way trip.. So we chose the option C : rent a big car and buy a mattress !

Our Grand Caravan cost us around 800$ (for two weeks, one-way trip and unlimited mileage) !

VANCOUVER

We spent 2 days in Vancouver to visit the city obviously and prepare our “camping-car” !

Where to stay ?

– KITSILANO : we found a lovely house in Kitsilano, a quiet and boho area.

 Kitsilano Beach on the left – The Burrard Hotel on the right

– DOWNTOWN : Big crush for the Burrard Hotel.. too expensive for us but SO stylish with its retro design

Where to eat ?

– FALSE CREEK : CRAFT BEER MARKET : In the heart of the Olympic Village, located in the emblematic Salt Building, Craft is the place to enjoy delicious burgers and beers ! More than 100 Canadian beers on tap !

– KITSILANO : BANANA LEAF : A Malaysian restaurant near our house.. casual atmosphere and delicious dishes !

CAPILANO SUSPENSION BRIDGE PARK : On our way out of Vancouver, we stopped at Capilano Suspension Bridge. Too crowded to really appreciate the place but making our way on tree tops was quite impressive..
