Vancouver is a coastal city located in the Canadian state of British Colombia, and is the 3rd largest city in Canada.

A popular tourist destination for North American tourists and foreign visitors alike, Vancouver is regularly ranked as one of the top 10 holiday destinations in the world.

The city is also one of Canada’s most culturally diverse and you get a real flavour of this when visiting the local markets, shopping outlets and restaurants, as well as a wonderfully diverse nightlife scene.

Vancouver is also known for its sporting history, and has played host to many international sporting tournaments, across various fields of sporting activity. The city is popular with outdoor enthusiasts, as well as watersports fans and young families.

Arriving Vancouver Airport

Vancouver Airport is the second largest and busiest airport in Canada. Located approximately 12km from downtown Vancouver, taxi cabs from the airport to the city centre can be expected to charge around $15-$20 for the journey.

Due to the popularity of the airport, the high volume of traffic on a daily basis ensures that procedures such as check-in, baggage collection, security and car rental options can take slightly longer than at quieter airports, although these are conducted fairly quickly and are certainly no slower than at other similarly sized major international airports.

In fact, Vancouver Airport is regularly ranked the most efficient in North America, and it is only the amount of people passing through the terminals on a daily basis that produces slight delays in these standard airport processes.

Driving In Vancouver

Driving in Vancouver is generally a fairly simple experience. Most of the major road networks are well designed and maintained in an excellent condition.

Only at certain points when entering and exiting the city are roads a little tight, and you must take care at these points, as local drivers can take the bends for granted and drive a little too quickly for comfort.

This must also be taken into consideration when driving through the Vancouver hills and mountains.

Road signage is aimed particularly at guiding foreign visitors around the city, and you’ll find that providing you have an updated GPS system to hand, navigation of the city should be fairly straightforward.

Vancouver Driving Tips

  • Canadian cars drive on the right side of the road. Only use the left lane while performing overtaking maneuvers.
  • Children under the age of 12 cannot sit in the front seat of the car. Also, all children under the age of 8 must have a car seat or booster seat in order to travel.
