If a city is judged by its diversity and culture, we're proud to say that Vancouver’s neighbourhoods take top honours. No less than a dozen different enclaves invite visitors and locals to stroll colourful sidewalks, savour spectacular settings and soak in a wide range of urban vibes with roots in many different cultures and ways of life. And the bonus for visitors is that many of the neighbourhoods in Vancouver are located close to each other, making it possible to see many sides of the city during your visit.

It would take weeks, if not months, to see all there is to see in each neighbourhood, so you can focus on just a few in great detail or hit the highlights of them all. To help you narrow down the choices, we've provided this guide to Vancouver neighborhoods.
