In the heart of every trendy neighborhood, Gastown is the oldest part of the city. It offers galleries, various shops, and a place full of restaurants, you can never get bored by just window shopping. Gastown is a heritage structure, an area of antique-y buildings.
Gastown, as the oldest part of the city, was founded way back in 1867 by John Deighton who later earned the nickname “Gassy Jack.” With that, the area further developed its name into “Gassy’s Town” or “Gastown.”
Tourists stop by for photos over the neighborhood in Maple Tree Square — a statue of ‘Gassy Jack’ watches over the vicinity and a nearby Steam Clock puffs steam-powered chimes every 15 minutes. It’s certainly very fun to be around Gastown.
5.) Canada Place
Canada Place has a marvelous architectural structure which is popular for tourists who arrive in Vancouver on a cruise ship. Tourists stay by the end of the pier to watch the Flyover Canada — a flight simulator that pleases your eyes.
Also, nearby, there are plenty of tourist spots that you can spend the rest of the day in. There’s Waterfront Station, a waterfront towards Stanley Park. You can also see the seaplanes take off and land, and huge seagoing container ships heading out.
