Please enjoy this one-hour-plus video of downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
We start off on the Cambie Street Bridge and travel up Smithe Street.
We head down Nelson Street at 2:50.
At 10:20, we are on Beach Avenue where there is… a beach.
12:00 is where a lot of people reside in downtown Vancouver — the rent around here tends to be “cheaper” since the buildings are older… but it’s still expensive for what you get.
16:24 is the famous Robson Street (lots of shops and restaurants).
Hornby Street — 19:25 — is where the art gallery is (on the right).
22:05 is Hastings Street — West Hastings is the business district while the East is infamous for its drug users.
24:35 is the Gastown area — tourists seem to enjoy this area.
At 28:12 that big building on the right is the downtown library — if you’re interested in architecture it’s worth a visit.
At the end of Seymour Street is the final station for the Skytrain (Waterfront) — 35:55.
36:45 is the Vancouver Convention Centre and Pan Pacific Hotel.
The North part of Burrard Street has some high towers used for businesses (37:41).
41:25 is Coal Harbor — if you have a yacht, you can anchor it around here.
Granville Street is where you can go to nightclubs at night — it’s also a nice place to get punched in the face if you get too drunk and become a nuisance — 49:20.
50:52 is Yaletown, the perfect place to take an extended lunch break and have a few beers.
We pass by Chinatown (58:32) and end up around the Powell Street area towards the end of this video.
