AS THE CLICHÉ GOES, VANCOUVER is one of the rare places where “you can swim in the ocean in the morning and go skiing in the afternoon”. Encircled by snow-capped mountains on one side and the sparkling Pacific on the other, the city is perfect for those who love to explore the outdoors. It also boasts thriving art, theatre, music and culinary scenes.
