You will also take a little walk around Chinatown to see such novelties as the "World's Narrowest Building" and Chinese spice and medicine shops.
Leaving the downtown area, travel to the highest point in the city, the spectacular Queen Elisabeth Park and it's sunken gardens and sweeping panoramic views of Vancouver, the mountains, and the sea.
