      Does anyone know what kind of market this was?

      Vancouver 9 minutes ago

      Me and my cousin walked into this street market in Gastown, and started filming, and we almost got jumped. The market was set up right next to the Ranier Hotel on the corner of Carrall and W. Cordova St. It was a Sunday.
      Anyways, those guys got really angry that were filming, and when we asked them why we can't film, they didn't answer, and were looking at us the whole time. Who were those guys? Why were they so angry about the camera? Were they selling stolen property? What kind of market was this?

      I wrote a warning about it, with pictures.

      I was with my cousin who lives there, and HE didn't know what it was. His guess was as good as mine. Please, any information will help. I would like to know who these guys were who almost jumped us. I've never had anything like this happened before.

    • Wine tour in Okanagan Valley

      Kelowna Jul 8, 2014 at 8:17 PM

      Hi there!
      I'm doing a 10-day road trip through BC at the end of July, and Kelowna will be one of the stops for 2 nights. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any good wine tours or the best areas (Naramata, West Kelowna, South Okanagan, etc) to tour? I'm looking for a tour that is fun, knowledgeable (as I do know a bit about wine already), and I'd love to go through wineries that are scenic. Any suggestions would be appreciated!! Thanks! :)

      Has anyone hiked these areas?

      Vancouver Jun 22, 2014 at 12:25 PM

      Widgeon Lake, Golden Ears, and Mt. Judge Howay?

      I wanted to go to Whistler, but Whistler is a bit far. These areas are closer, and have the same stuff.

      I was wondering, is there a trail to Widgeon Lake? If so, how long is it, and where does one park his car?
      What about Blanshard Needle, and Evan's Valley? I see there is a nice waterfall at Evan's Valley, but it doesn't look like there is a trail.
      What about Judge Howay? Someone put a picture on Google Earth, of large waterfall flowing from red rocks. Is there a waterfall up there, if so, how does one get up there?
      Can these areas be hiked easily? And how long does it take to get up there from Surrey? I was thinking about just doing a day trip.
      Also, what will the conditions be like, late June, early July. WIll it be covered in snow, or will it be accessible?
      Any other similar places you could suggest for hiking, or should we just go to Whistler?

    • First time flyer/ international traveler

      Vancouver Jun 16, 2014 at 1:20 PM

      So I am traveling with my husband to Vancouver in late July of this year. Neither of us have ever flown before let alone been out of the country. So I am looking for some advice on what to absolutely not bring and what I should bring for a week in Vancouver. I'm also looking for some ideas on what we should expect in the airport once we've crossed the border and the best/cheapest ways to get around town. Anything will help!

      Are there any other places, like the Anthropology Museum?

      Vancouver Jun 22, 2014 at 12:06 PM

      I wanted to visit the Anthropology Museum, at the University, but I went on their website, and it says the fee is 16.75 CAD per person. That is quite a lot, and a bit too expensive for me.
      Are there any other places in the Vancouver area where I can see First Nations artifacts, for a cheaper price? I know there is one at Fort Langley, but the collection doesn't compare to this one.
      Is this museum worth the price?

    • Vancouver Island - 2 days

      Vancouver Island Jul 6, 2014 at 11:55 AM

      Hi there, I'm planning a 10 day road trip through BC and the Alberta rockies, and I have allotted 2 days to be on Vancouver Island. We will likely be camping both days, and would just like to visit beautiful places and spend time outdoors. I would love visiting or camping near a beach there one or two nights. Seeing wildlife would be a bonus! I don't need to drive all around the island, I just want to spend 2 scenic days on the island. Any suggestions?

      Hello, I'm possibly attending TRU this September for 2 years (grad studies). I'd like to hear some input about what Kamloops and the area are like, just general thoughts, things to do, recommendations, anything really. It's tough making such a big decision from across the country. I wish I could visit first, but that's not a possibility. So far I've heard all good things about how beautiful the region is. Many thanks :)

      We attended the Two River Junction Musical Revue on September 24, 2006. We greatly enjoyed the production – the individuals who portrayed Laura & Bill were outstanding. Unfortunately, we failed to record/remember the names of the actress/actors who were part of the review. We would appreciate being informed of the names of the six individuals in the roles of: Laura, Billy, the Mounty, the conductor, & Billy’s two accomplices.

    • What to do ?

      by smiler_girl Online Now Jan 10, 2006 at 2:16 PM


      Myself and 2 friends arrive in Kamloops at lunchtime and leave the following morning - its Weds March 8th and in the evening we are going to go to the ice hockey game. Never been to one - we are from Australia - and it seems to be the only one that is one at the time we are in a city!!
      However, what is there to do from when we arrive to the game - just wander around town? I know we don't have heaps of time but is there anything that we should see? Plus where is a good place to get something to eat before the game - a good local place - a few beers and a good meal type of place - with good atmosphere!!

      Thanks in advance!

      I work at the old courthouse hostel which sees over 9000 guests a year from all over the world, and I've noticed in the winter months that activites in the town have really lightened. Is there any activites that happen on a weekly basis, or special things that are going on??? If you could please reply so that we can inform our guests, that would be fantastic, thank you! Oh, and is the free 2-stepping lessons at CJ's on Wednesday or Friday... I can never seem to get ahold of them, and I have read that it is on Wednesday, and have heard it is on Friday, could someone clarify.. thanks!

      One day to go and we are on our way to the Canadian Rockies! Checking all those wonderful VT member sites that give so much information about this area (Ann75 & Waalewiener to name just a couple) just for those extra couple of tips pointing to places and restaurants that we would not think of going to BUT... We are stopping in Kamloops for one night while travelling through on the Rocky Mountaineer but there is only one tipped restaurant for this place (thanks to Vic5). Has anyone got any favourites that they have been to here? Many thanks for your replies Andy
