Look at this video that shows some of the Vancouver sights and our famous fireworks festival held every July: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4_3d27dnlE
Vancouver is a highly multicultural and exciting city in perhaps Canada’s most beautiful province, British Columbia. Vancouver shares the well-known Canadian boasts of friendly and welcoming citizens, a safe environment, and nearby opportunities for wide range of adventurous activities and great local opportunities to explore. Despite the modern urban setting of the City itself, Vancouver is enveloped in a natural setting of extraordinary mountains, lush forested areas and the North Pacific Ocean.
It is one of the few places in the world where a morning can be spent on the beach, with the same afternoon spent enjoying snow sports less than 30 minutes away. This is one of the reasons why Vancouver is so frequently ranked in the top 10 most desirable cities to live in the world. Public transport makes exploring and commuting to and from your studies simple and safe, with frequent and well situated bus routes and Skytrains running from dawn until dusk.
