Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, is a city well acquainted with Hong Kong. Emigration from Hong Kong and the frequent exchange of friends and relatives to and from Hong Kong, make a visit to the Rocky Mountains an attractive adjunct to any holiday to Canada.
Vancouver has lots to offer. Beautiful Vancouver Island and the affluent British city and capital of British Columbia, Victoria, is only a ferry ride away. The famous ski resort and summer holiday resort of Whistler is also nearby. Most famously though, are the spectacular Rocky Mountains, and the resort locations of Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper. These regions can be approached by self-drive car or tourist coach from either Vancouver or Calgary, Alberta. By far the best way to arrive in Banff, however, is aboard the famous luxury train, “Rocky Mountaineer”.
The Rocky Mountaineer train trip is an overnight journey from Vancouver. One disembarks from the train and spends the night en route in a comfortable hotel.
All meals are enjoyed on board the train in the luxury of the Dining Car. The carriages of Rocky Mountaineer are double storey. Your seats are elevated, high up under a glass dome which enables you to view the spectacular scenery in all directions. Downstairs, the beautiful Dining Room has huge picture windows. There is even an elevator for the physically challenged.
If you are prepared for luxury, the opportunity to stay at the famed Banff Springs Hotel or the Chateau Lake Louise are destinations unto themselves.
