The fastest-growing city in Canada, Vancouver is also the most modern, the most diverse in population (a large percentage of its residents are Asian), and arguably the most fascinating in its touristic appeal: from remarkable museums to superb ethnic restaurants in all price ranges, to outstanding parks and natural sights, to locally-managed shops and stores, its lures attract a huge influx of visitors each year. Nearby, Victoria is a British-themed city of older attractions, yet just as appealing.
