* <see name="Yaletown and the Vancouver Marina" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">A beautiful micro-community in the heart of downtown. Take a walk through this area, check out the yuppie side of Vancouver. Hamilton & Mainland Streets are in actuality lanes (or back-alleys) with old loading docks, but have been converted into European-style high-curb streets.</see>
* <see name="Gastown" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">The oldest part of downtown. You will find cobble-paved boulevards and over-priced tourist traps selling every imaginable thing you can print "Vancouver" on. Popular with tourists are the Gastown Steam Clock, promoted as the only active steam clock in the world but in fact an electric clock that pumps steam rather an underwhelming experience; the Gassy Jack sculpture immortalizing the legendary Vancouver pioneer. The area is notorious for aggressive beggars-drug addicts who are quite unsettling.</see>
* <see name="Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden" alt="" address="578 Carrall St" directions="" phone="+1 604-662-3207" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">A Ming-dynasty style garden located in Chinatown. The gardens combines traditional Chinese buildings, plants, a small lake, and curved footpaths to create the illusion of a very big place within a single block. Tours are available.</see>
* <see name="BC Place and GM Place" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">The homes of the '''BC Lions''' CFL football team and '''Vancouver Canucks''' NHL hockey team respectively. Both buildings are also home to many conventions/tradeshows and big name concerts, although these days GM Place is preferred for concerts due to its superior acoustics. BC Place has the distinction of being the largest air supported dome in the world, and can pack in 60,000 people. Both buildings are located off the Georgia Street Viaduct at Pacific Blvd. near the shore of False Creek.</see>
