City profile: Vancouver in Canada

North Vancouver and sea from downtown
Vancouver is in western Canada , in the province of British Columbia.
It is a cosmopolitan city where immigrants from places such as China, the Middle East and South America live.

It is a popular destination for American sightseers and movie stars for a vacation.
There are mountains and the famous ski area ‘Whistler’, and the coast is close to downtown.

Vancouver has a rainy season, half of the year from November to April, but it does not get much snow due to the maritime climate. In summer, it is very comfortable as there are plenty of sunny days with dry air.

Downtown Vancouver has an art museum, a popular shopping center, an aquarium and a big park. Although there are no famous Canadian dishes, there are a lot of international restaurants because of Vancouver’s cosmopolitan population.
