Vancouver for 3 days in May 2014

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone

I wanted to get some expert advice and recommendations for a 3 day trip I'm planning to take to Vancouver in May 2014 - specifically May 8 to May 11.

A few details:
- About me: M/36. I'll be traveling alone from SF.
- Vegetarian (eggs okay): I love asian fare (spicy) and good salads. I love mock meat as well. I'm Indian, so prefer home-cooked Indian meals than eating out :)
- Not a big party person.
- I like museums, history and photography.

I was thinking of the following itinerary and would love your critique, suggestions and changes:

Hotel: Considering the Westin Bayshore using SPG points.
Getting around: I prefer public transit as much as possible. If I needed a car for a bit, there's always zipcar!


May 8 (Thursday): Arrive late night, check in to hotel.

May 9 (Friday):
- Early morning (7 am): Any photography suggestions?
- Morning: Canada place, Museum of Anthropology
- Afternoon: Gastown
- Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner: Any suggestions?
- Evening photography: Any suggestions?

May 10 (Saturday):
- Morning: Stanley park
- Afternoon: Chinatown
- Breakfast/lunch/dinner: Any suggestions?

May 11 (Sunday)
- Lynn Valley (use zipcar)
- What else?
- Flight back to SF at 8:30 PM
- Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner: Any suggestions?

Questions:
- What other things am I missing? Downtown?
- How would you re-arrange my itinerary - add/remove/shift?
- Any cool bookstores, cafe's to hang out at?
- Good photo spots I should go to in the evening? I will bring my tripod with me for evening shots.
- Would really appreciate recommendations for veggie places. I don't care if the place serves meat - as long as vegetarians are catered for.

Look forward to your responses!

Thank you!
-R
