WHY THE GASTOWN?

Gastown is one of the most stylish neighbourhoods in the world and the first settlement of Vancouver. Its cute, European style streets make you feel like you are in a different country. Best yet, the trendy shops, bars, nightclubs and restaurants bring a unique culture to the area that can entertain anybody. Learn about the first original settlement of Vancouver and how it almost didn't survive to tell the tale on multiple occasions. Discover its rough and rocky past and how it has turned the corner to become a hip and trendy area with many attractions for both locals and tourists. Come see this area for yourself and enjoy some of the delicacies that Vancouver is so well known for. Vancouver's large Asian population and proximity to the ocean, has resulted in it being home to the most authentic and freshest sushi in North America.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
