Each of the "Frommer" guides are packed with reliable, money-saving advice that travellers will find invaluable - whether they're travelling on a shoestring or staying at the Ritz. The detailed pre-trip planning information includes transportation advice, suggested itineraries and a calendar of special events. Exact prices, not vague price ranges, let readers carefully plan their daily budgets. Advice on getting there - by plane, train, bus or car - as well as information on British customs allowances, UK embassy locations and a currency chart that compares the British pound to the local currency is included. This book looks at Vancouver - Canada's gateway to the Pacific. A breathtakingly natural setting, beside silver-green waters and below the snowy Canadian Rockies, adds to Vancouver's reputation as a clean, liveable city, full of parks and greenery. Nearby Victoria contains the finest gardens in Canada and the quaint atmosphere of an English seaside resort.
