Canada has double standards when it comes to its tourist/visit visa policies. If you are a European or a Scandinavian, you are good to go. However, they are a lot stricter if you have applied from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and a few African countries. The key is to have all the right documents in place and give satisfactory answers to their questions. If you convince them that you only want to discover the country’s beauty, you will soon enough be on a plane to Canada.
Canada is huge so the accommodation rates pretty much vary from place to place. In bigger cities like Toronto, you are likely to find cheaper places too. More touristy destinations such as Vancouver tend to be expensive. 50 US dollars is an average figure you can keep in mind. Although, in some places it can be a lot more than this and in some places a lot less than this. Research well before you visit.
Moving around in the city is not hard. Most cities have a good public transportation system in place. But if you plan on visiting more than one city, it might be a good idea to rent a car.
Things to do!
Now this is the fun part. Canada does not fall short of things to do.
– Outdoor Activities: Canoeing, kayaking, biking, hiking, mountain climbing, picnicking and boating are some of the outdoor activities that one can enjoy in Canada. The mountains in Canada are perfect for adventurous activities. Snowboarding during the winter season is quite a popular activity too.
– Explore Vancouver: You must absolutely make sure that you visit Vancouver. I would go as far as calling it the best city of Canada. Mainly because the city offers great atmosphere, the locals are friendly and the natural beauty is breathtaking. The city is just the right mix of urban and natural. You could shop around in the fancy malls on one day and the next day you could climb a mountain. That’s how awesome Vancouver is!
– Road Trip: If you wish to enjoy Canada to the fullest, take a road trip. Exploring the country’s lovely countryside and urban centers via a road trip is not only fun but very memorable too.
– Toronto: I feel a trip to Canada is incomplete if one doesn’t visit Toronto. It is the most cultural and diverse city in the country. You’ll find a great variety of cuisines here and food is more or less the highlight of this city.
Canada is a vast land blessed with natural beauty and abundant facilities. The hustling and bustling Toronto, the beautiful Vancouver, the exotic Montreal, the vibrant Calgary and the modern Edmonton are only a few of the country’s great destinations. And it is highly recommended that you visit this beautiful location. But before you head out to discover Canada, go through this Canadian travel guide.
