Taking a trip away is always a blessing. But how do you choose which corner of the globe you should visit next? If you’re struggling to make up your mind, we encourage you to take a trip to the wondrous land of Canada.
But what makes this North American nation so appealing? Here are four reasons why Canada is the perfect holiday destination for anyone looking for an escape.
Canada consistently rates amongst the top countries in the world when it comes to the beauty of its natural landscape. As CNN Travel point out, there are a host of incredible destinations, all worth checking out on your adventures.
Some of the best from their list include the likes of:
- The Capilano Suspension Bridge
- Peggy’s Cove in Nova Scotia
- Lake Louise in Banff National Park
Serving as an inspiration for anyone who sees them, the countless natural beauties of Canada are one of the most enticing reasons to visit.
With the tagline of “America’s friendly neighbour to the north”, it’s perhaps little surprise to hear Canadians have a reputation for being a group of people who you’d want to have a pleasant chat with.
You’re bound to feel welcome wherever you head, with the locals quick to extend the olive branch (or perhaps that should be “maple leaf”) of friendship. So long as you’re polite and observe the general social etiquette of the town or city you’re in, you’re likely to be met with smiles.
In a world where disabled travellers are being catered to more and more, Canada leads the way in many of its major cities. This is perhaps no truer than it is in the case of Vancouver. You’ll find extra care and attention has been taken to ensure people of all abilities are able to head out and have fun.
According to Insurancewith, Vancouver are leaders in both accessible space in hotels and accessible transport. In the case of the latter, Translink, SkyTrain, and SeaBus are all leading names in the field on a worldwide scale.
Canadians have a habit of coming up with utterly unique flavour combinations which people across the world would never think to try. From the amalgamation of cheese, gravy, and fries (poutine), to flipper pie (which is pretty much what it says on the tin), you’ll find an assortment of different flavour mashups worth sampling.
That’s all without mentioning the tried and tested classic of maple syrup, pancakes, and bacon. While you can find this in most diners around the world now, nothing compares to chowing down on the original. Find out for yourself the next time you visit.
Have we tempted you? Be sure to consider Canada for your next vacation.
You certainly won’t be disappointed.
