    What are the best places to see wildlife (such as orcas or bears) near Vancouver? Thinking of going there in apAugust.

    Your best bet is the Northern regions of Vancouver Island. It's not exactly "close" to Vancouver, but definitely accessible with a hire vehicle and absolutely worth the effort. By far my best experiences (http://bit.ly/yUlEtv & http://bit.ly/AkyLoE) were up around Knight Inlet which is accessible on day tours etc out of Telegraph Cove (http://bit.ly/zvp8W1), about a 5 hour drive from the ferry terminal in Nanaimo (http://bit.ly/zWEhru). Vancouver to Nanaimo via BC Ferries is easy and convenient, but best to book ahead online. Check out the website for details: http://bit.ly/xrtspt. over 6 years ago

    Where can I find some good Sushi in downtown Vancouver?

    The question is probably more like "where CAN'T I find Sushi in downtown Vancouver?"!! There's tonnes of places you can try, but if "Downtown" is what you need then you best head off along Robson Street where you will find places like "Gyoza King" (recommend), "Tsunami Sushi" or "Guu Sushi". If you're a true sushi connoisseur, however, you'll want to leave the Downtown core, head over the Granville Street Bridge and head along West Broadway to "Tojo's". almost 8 years ago

    Where are some fun places to go on weeknights?

    Make the effort to seek out a fantastic bar tucked away down a back alleyway off Moray Place called "Pequeño". I had a brilliant time there earlier this year and would highly recommend it as an alternative to some of the more commercial, lame spots on the "Octagon". http://www.pequeno.co.nz/ almost 8 years ago

    Where is the best place to look for a share house in Vancouver

    Hands down your best source for looking for somewhere in Vancouver will be Craigslist.org. More specifically, bookmark yourself this link: http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/roo/ As far as places to look for, "Kits Beach (Kitsilano)" is always popular with Aussies, as is the "West End" and throughout the Downtown core. You will, of course, save money if you look outside the downtown area, so there are decent opportunities along the Skytrain line heading out towards Burnaby (next major suburb eastwards). As always with public listing websites, make sure you thoroughly research anything you find on Craigslist to make sure that you are certain it is legit. Best of luck! You're going to love it in Vancouver - there's a reason it consistently ranks as one of the most liveable cities in the world. I went for 12 months, stayed for 7 years! almost 8 years ago

    What's best way to get from Vancouver airport to downtown on a Thursday afternoon in peak hour?

    Without a doubt Vancouver's brand new "Canada Line" SkyTrain Line is the best way to get from YVR (Vancouver Airport) to the middle of downtown (Vancouver City Centre Station). The trains are clean and comfortable and depart every 8 minutes during weekday peak periods. Your journey will take roughly 25-30mins and will cost you $8.75 (as per June 2011). Tickets may be purchased with cash or credit/debit cards from the vending machines adjacent to the train platform. over 7 years ago

    what is the best backpackers in vancouver

    The two main Backpacker hostels that everyone seems to drift to, are located across the road from one another on Granville Street, the main entertainment strip (bars, clubs & restaurants) in town. They are: The Samesun: http://is.gd/Ss7cpk HI Vancouver Central: http://is.gd/ajlpeP These are well and good for the fact that you are smack bang in the heart of town where it all happens, but this can mean a LOT of noise pollution at night too. A quieter option not that much further away from Granville Street is: HI Vancouver Downtown: http://is.gd/uDvMha These are probably your 3 most popular hostel locations. over 7 years ago
