Few of the things that you can expect to witness when you visit Vancouver Canada include the amazing mountain backdrops and extremely fresh air. If you have been there earlier, you would know how naturally beautiful Canada is, but if you are going there for the first time, there are certain vacation tips that you must keep in mind:

-          If you are driving from the United States to Canada, one thing that you will have to be careful of is the speed limit. In the United State, the speed is measured in miles per hour, whereas in Canada it is measured in kilometers per hour. That will change the maximum speed at which you can drive there and you must be aware of that at all times.

-          Time zones often change when one travels from one country to another. You must keep in mind the time difference that you will face when you travel from your country to Canada and prepare yourself for that accordingly.

-          Weather in Vancouver Canada is divided in four seasons. Winter is the longest among them and it usually lasts from October to May. In case you are planning to travel during this time period, make sure to carry appropriate woolens and jackets along.

-          Be sure to carry enough Canadian dollars when you go on a vacation there. It may not be easy to get the money exchanged there as you can only get it done at some centers and when on a holiday, you would not like to run for anything and especially for getting money.

-          It will be a good idea to carry an American-French and a French-American dictionary with you during your visit to Vancouver and other parts of Canada as there are some areas in Canada where people speak only French and if you are not comfortable with the local language, there are chances that you may miss out on some good part of that place.

-          One of things that Vancouver is famous for is Skiing and various other outdoor activities. Another thing that attracts the tourists to Canada is hiking in the various reservoirs of the Vancouver Island. It will be good if carry all such information with you when going for a vacation there so that you know what can be done where and you will not have to waste time there in enquiring about such things.

-          Vancouver is one of the very few places where one can play golf, ski and even sail during one single day of spring. That shows that spring may be the right season to visit Vancouver if you want to enjoy all such attractions there.

Vancouver Canada is one of the very friendly and beautiful places of the world and the cost of a holiday there would be much cheaper than the cost of a vacation in France. The only thing that you will have to keep in mind is to get all the bookings done on time and do some study about the place before going there.
