Journey Through Smoky Haze – Part 5
Vancouver is the fist city we ever visited in North America. A decade ago we came here for an international conference as part of my education. We simply felt in love with this city and wished to visit it again.
It took us 5 hours to drive from Sun Peaks Resort to Vancouver. But it took us almost an hour to find the entrance of Hyatt Regency Vancouver. Among other hotels we stayed in this trip, Hyatt Regency Vancouver is the best because their staffs are very helpful and service minded; the hotel is located in the prime spot of Vancouver; and the bed made us fall asleep within two minutes. We simply love this place.
In the morning, we took a bus from our hotel to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. We arrived at the opening time. There was not many tourists when we walked at the suspension bridge. We took a lot of pictures while we walked in the park. We really had a great time there.
Some people might call Vancouver as Hongkouver because of influx of Asians. But we love it that way. There are many authentic Asian cuisine and products that we cannot get in Copenhagen. We had lunch and dinner at Ebi Ten, our favorite Japanese takeaway. When we were visiting Vancouver decade ago, we also had lunch and dinner at Ebi Ten. The menu is slightly different now but it’s all good as it was back then. Along the main streets, we can see an increase of Asian specialities. We tried Taiwanese bubble tea, pudding parfait, and green tea soft-ice. Besides that we also bought snacks and candies from Konbiniya Japan Centre.
Before we drove back to Seattle, we walked from our hotel to our favourite Japanese takeaway and continued to Grandville Island. I personally cannot enjoy it because of intensive walking from the previous days. At the end, I barely walked back to the hotel.
To be continued…
