VANCOUVER ISLAND: VICTORIA,BC.
Welcome to the jewel of Canada’s west coast! the city of gardens, the capital of British Columbia, the warmest place in all Canada, full of flowers almost all year round.. all that and much more is Victoria…
This is my favorite place in Canada and believe me, once you walk on its streets, you’ll feel like being in a fairy tale town.
Most of its charm derives from its English air as many people say Victoria is more British than England, and even though I haven’t been in England I think it’s true. In this city you can take great pictures because of the beautiful scenery, even if you are the worst photographer!
THE EMPRESS HOTEL, VICTORIA
Even if you don’t stay at this hotel you must stop for afternoon tea which is enjoyed by over 100,000 people every year. The Victoria Fairmount Empress Hotel serves its own special
blend of tea in fine Royal Doultan china.
ROYAL BC MUSEUM, VICTORIA.
You certainly absolutely must go to to the Royal B.C. Museum. I have been all over the world and I have never seen a museum such as this one before. It’s located right in the downtown portion of Victoria, and very easy to get to!
BC PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS ,VICTORIA.
The Legislature Buildings of British Columbia are a majestic and stunning structure that partially dominate the Inner Harbour of Victoria. Built of rough stone and richly decorated in an eclectic mixture of Victorian Gothic, Italianate, and 19th-century Romanesque styles, the buildings are an early masterpiece of Francis Rattenbury, who went on to design many signature buildings in Victoria and elsewhere in Canada, primarily BC. These include the Empress Hotel and part of the Banff Springs Hotel.
There are free guided tours of the interior during summer. Take your time to enjoy the exterior and the gardens.
