A very good guide to Vancouver - not British Columbia
on 6 June 2011
We recently used this guide for our visit to Vancouver and found it a very good guide. It was only published in February so the information is accurate. The pull out map is very useful too and it didn't have the binding issues another similar guide I purchased had.
The city guides take a bit of getting used to as they are split into sections for each Neighbourhood and then the Eating, Sleeping, Drinking and Shopping sections are then split into sections for each neighbourhood. Once you manage to get your head round this it makes sense. There are small sections for excursions to Victoria, Whistler, Squamish, Buntzen Lake, Bowen Island and Southern Gulf Islands. These sections are small so if you intend spending time in these places and not Vancouver this book isn't for you. However, on our day trip to Victoria we did use this book and found a very good place to eat through it - somewhere we wouldn't have found otherwise.
If you are going to Vancouver and not the rest of BC then this is the book for you.
