Gastown and UBC

We actually went on different dates to Gastown and UBC but I wanted to just lump together the places that you can go to in a day. We didn’t really use public transportation much during our stay in Vancouver (my brother would just rent a car from his app) so I can’t say how we really got to some places (sorry).

Gastown

You can use the subway and go down at Waterfront Station to be able to get to Gastown.

Eat: Tacofino

My brother was actually the one who told us that we’re having Mexican for dinner and he was the one who brought us here!!! They actually call it TacoBar or BurritoBar.

ps. It’s kinda hidden in an alley?? He was the one who guided us there so I suggest you use google maps or check their address below.

Definitely on my recommended “must try”!! Oh and if you can, go during the day, the place looks fabulous but it was hard taking photos at night.

Eat: The Flying Pig

We dinned in The Flying Pig during our last days in Vancouver and we went there with my brother’s friend (who’s currently in Vancouver as well). He wanted us or I think we also wanted to try “Canadian food”. I think this was the closest one that offers “Canadian food”

Also, apologizng in advance cause the food photos are so dark and blurry (huhu I only had my iPhone during the trip) oh and I don’t know what we ordered since my brother’s friend was the one who ordered for us. I just know everything tasted DELICIOUS!

UBC (University of British Columbia)

I remember my brother showing me UBC’s lip dub on YT and we were both like “omg what a cool school”!! Fast forward years later and he actually got to study there!!

He actually had exams during the afternoon but before his exams, he showed us around his campus! It made me wish that the universities here in the Philippines would also look as nice as UBC.

Probably weird for some but I totally “fangirled” (????) as soon as we went around (the place was so huge we only toured I think 1/4 of the place?) since I totally fell in love with the school after watching their lip dub on YT.

For you to get to UBC, there are only 2 possible ways either by bus or by car.

their library WAS HUGE and they had multiple libraries (I was actually so happy during that time)

I think this was supposed to be a fountain but since it was winter the water froze
