Vancouver is this Canadian city that has the power to woo people in an instant. Much of it can be credited to the friendly locals who make you feel welcomed. They are generous, helpful and full of life. Other than the lovely natives, the idyllic setting of the city makes for an interesting vacation in Vancouver. From mountains skirting the city, to the oceans serenading you with the sounds of the waves, you can find the best of both the worlds in Vancouver. Considering that the city is a nature lover’s favorite, it’s pretty hard to think of it as a cosmopolitan city. Truth be told, it is every bit of an urban oasis. High rise buildings, shopping complexes, art galleries, eateries, bars and clubs, the city has it all. So, if you have been contemplating a vacation lately, book a cheap flight to Vancouver and have the time of your life.

The Marine Building

Located in downtown Vancouver, The Marine Building is one of the flawless examples of art deco architecture in the world. The museum that opened in 1930 almost immediately garnered the title of being the tallest building in the city. Rising up to a height of 321 feet, the museum is spread across 21 floors. The intricate details that has gone in to making the building is a sheer work of art. The museum even after more than 80 years has not lost its staggering charm and is a must visit place. Book low cost airline tickets to Vancouver and witness the grandness of this building. 

Gastown Steam Clock 

The neighborhood of Gastown has gone a major transformation over the past years combing the old with the new. What once easily qualified as the neglected and down-trodden part of the city today teems with everything that one could ask for to have a good time in Vancouver. But, what stands out in this reborn neighborhood is the Gastown Steam Clock. Though it’s a recent addition to the city’s décor, the steam clock has this Victorian era feel to it. The clock is 16 foot tall and showcases time on its four faces playing the Westminster chimes every quarter hour with steam shooting out from the top every hour. So, instead of booking a cheap flight to London to immerse in the Victorian vibes, head to Vancouver instead. 

Bloedel Conservatory

Sitting atop the highest point in the city of Vancouver, Bloedel Conservatory is where you get to witness the tropics in this temperature controlled environment. The conservatory is built in the shape of the dome where it maintains three distinct climate zones―tropical, subtropical and desert― all under one roof. Spread across these three different biomes, the conservatory is home to more than 500 species of flora and over 120 types of free-flying exotic birds. Book a cheap flight to Vancouver and let the scent of the plants and the sight of the vibrantly colored birds at Bloedel Conservatory win you over.
  
Vancouver Police Museum

A city ends up experiencing some sort of crime and mayhem regardless of how much effort goes in to maintaining law and order. Vancouver has experienced its fair share of crimes. And, The Vancouver Police Museum is where you can take a good look at the dark side of the city. The museum has a whooping collection of over 20000 objects which include confiscated weapons, fake currency, police uniforms, archival documents, and publications. Here you can always learn about the unsolved mysterious murder tales, explore the fascinating crime scenes or even dig deeper in to the exciting history of policing. Book a flight to Vancouver and let your curious soul have a good time.
