East meets West in the arms of the Pacific Rim in Beautiful BC. Where you'll discover fusion cooking with an Asian flare and Pacific seafood like wild salmon, halibut, big, plump West Coast oysters and delicate Dungeness Crab. In Vancouver, foodies head for the world-famous Granville Market, Chinatown and the East Indian cuisine of south Main Street. In the Okanagan's wine and orchard country, gourmet food, outstanding chefs and world class wines draw visitors from around the world to the annual Okanagan Wine Festival.
On Vancouver Island, there's traditional salmon on a cedar plank, the Coast Salish way. And Victoria's brewpubs, where Canada's best pure craft beer is produced at places like Spinnakers and Swans. The Cowichan Wine Valley, too, is Mecca for food lovers, cider and wine aficionados.
All of this as you sail, whale watch, golf, fish and experience some of the world's best beaches, scenery, and seascapes in Canada's most moderate climate. And world-class skiing in Whistler and Mount Washington, too. No wonder BC is billed as The Best Place on Earth.
