Vancouver, BC, Canada
6:00 PM

Verdant and cosmopolitan, Vancouver is located on Canada's west coast in the province of British Columbia. Immerse yourself in the Asian atmosphere of bustling Chinatown. In Gastown, you can explore the city's historical side along its paved streets fronted with Victorian buildings. Rich in luxury grocery stores and silk-wear boutiques, the Punjabi Market will whet your appetite for a bout of shopping. The bohemian cafés along Commercial Drive will surely beckon you in to savour a yoghurt ice-cream sundae. You can then take a walk along the Granville Island Jetty for a great lungful of iodised air straight off the Pacific Ocean.

Third tourist destination in the United States, this Californian city has an impressive cultural heritage. Aside from the famous Golden Gate Bridge, built in 1937 and henceforth symbol of San Francisco bay, the Van Ness Avenue, Market Street, and Embarcadero quarters by the waterfront, are all excellent places to hang out. Among the many curiosities to see, you'll be fascinated by Chinatown, literally a town within a town, with the largest Chinese community outside the Asian continent. Another notable quarter: Castro District, renowned as a symbol of gay rights.

This old fishing port on the west coast of the United States is the former capital of California. Although the sardine trade has no longer been in operation since the 1950s, the little town has kept all its charm and authenticity. Especially thanks to its aquarium, one of the largest in North America, which presents more than 600 species of ocean marine fauna. You can stroll at your leisure in Fisherman's Wharf, a very pleasant marina that offers several restaurants and souvenir shops, not forgetting Cannery Row.
