Vancouver: Shopping Holiday
A multicultural metropolis with snowcapped crags, city-hugging beaches and waterfront forests
Vancouver is home to one of the most famous shopping cities in the world: Robson Street. No shopping holiday in Vancouver would be complete without a trip along its gleaming windows, which display some of the most prominent worldwide luxury brands such as Hermès, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Betsey Johnson, Chanel, Cartier, Tiffany & Co., Lacoste, Coach, and Salvatore Ferragamo all vy for space here.
However, if your tastes are more modest, don’t despair: Vancouver’s wide range of bohemian and boutique shops will fit the pocket and style of even the most dedicated of holiday shoppers. If you’re looking to buy art whilst on holiday in Vancouver, then Granville Island and Gastown host a wide range of shops selling Inuit and First nation art and contemporary pieces by other Canadian artists.
Added to the variety of shopping outlets in Vancouver, visitors on a serious shopping mission will appreciate the compactness and the navigability of the city, allowing you to shop to your heart’s content without too much legwork.
