John Lee was born and raised a few miles north of London in the pub-strewn city of St. Albans, before heading to university in Leicester. Eager for overseas adventure, he next finagled his way into Western Canada’s University of Victoria to study politics before teaching English in Tokyo and then taking a life-changing trek on the Trans-Siberian Railway. More than 10 years later, he’s still doing it. An adopted Vancouverite for most of that time, John’s travel writing has appeared in more than 125 major newspapers and magazines around the world and his trips have taken him from New Zealand’s Fox Glacier to the pubs of Galway and the barbecue pits of Texas.

Vancouver’s downtown neighborhood is diverse enough to be worth spending . If you’re not keen on walking, grab a seat on the Vancouver Trolley.

Vancouver’s downtown neighborhood is diverse enough to be worth spending some time exploring on foot. You’ll find plenty of action in downtown Vancouver, which comprises of the West End, Yaletown and Gastown. Gritty Gastown, Vancouver’s oldest neighborhood, teems with great restaurants, pubs and shops. The Vancouver Art Gallery is well worth a visit, with rotating exhibits and an attractive exterior.

My wife went to Vancouver for business and I went along for fun. I used this guide and completed 6 or 7 of the walks. The maps were good and descriptions were informative. It could be improved by giving the physical street address of the various buildings. I would have walked by many interesting buildings without the guide. After her business was completed, we went on a walk together. We ejoyed it so much, that we purchased the "Walking Chicago" guide for our next trip. As an aside note, in the early morning hours there are many homeless people sleeping in doorways and we were frequently approached for money.

Some of the walks are pretty obvious (Robson Street, Gaslight District), but some cover things you'd never think to see. Tips for local establishments could stand refreshing, even though this book is just a little less than 3 years old. The ebook was great, as we simply took our Kindle with us on some of the walks.

This was informative information we used when visited the area.

Loved this book. It also provided places to eat and see along the streets of the city.We used it to find wonderful little pubs and learn about the neighborhoods in the city.

My wife and I recently visited Vancouver for the first time. We brought Walking Vancouver and the Lonely Planet Vancouver guide (and discovered both are by the same author, John Lee!). We did over 20 of the walks in this book in five days and left feeling that we'd gotten a great feel for a wonderful city. It really was like having our own personal tour guide, and although we did a lot of walking, we also did a lot of cafe and bar hopping (the author loves to eat and drink). He also has lots of nice little insider tips and pointers. The walks were not just in the "touristy" parts of town but in some of the neighborhoods that we would never have ventured in otherwise, like Commercial Drive and UBC. The bus system in Vancouver is excellent, so there's no reason you need a car. Just these guidebooks and some good walking shoes, and you're set for great exploration.
