In Prince George, we went to a park, some malls that close at 5pm(huuuh?!), some supermarkets, and of course visited my sister’s college……not much to see not much to do really. Vancouver is much better in terms of sight-seeing. I’ve been to Vancouver before but I was backpacking at that time; this time a handy local guide with a car, i.e. my uncle, was taking us around so we ended up NOT seeing much of the touristy spots but rather visiting places that locals go – like residential areas with beautiful houses, local shopping streets, chinese districts that you don’t hear any English. Pictures from left to right: View from our hotel room. Local shopping street near my uncle’s house in West Vancouver. Beaver Lake in Stanley Park – the only touristy place I re-visited this time.
A really good Cantonese noodle place in Richmond. I remember the shop name but can’t type in Japanese characters. Anyway, my other sister who travelled from home with my parents stopped taking pictures of the food from this day onwards…..understandable since they live in Hong Kong. ^^;;;
3254 Cambie Street.
My uncle’s favourite steak house – very HK cafe style. I had lobster bisque which was a bit salty, and charboiled prime grade rib-eye steak, with red wine liver sauce. The steak was quite soft. There was a big telly showing HK channels.
Basically we were just hanging around in chinese districts with no natives, not that I mind much but, no wonder my sister decided to move to Prince George – she said she couldn’t speak a word of English after staying in Vancouver for 2 years.
