This amazing piece of architecture is reminiscent of a sailing schooner under full sail. As well as housing a hotel and a trade and exhibition centre, Canada Place is the terminus for many of the world's finest cruise ships as they ply the summer Alaska cruise route. Of particular appeal here is the promenade deck that surrounds Canada Place, enabling close-up views of some beautiful cruise ships, as well as great panoramas of Vancouver and the harbour.

BulletSun Tower
One of Vancouver's most recognizable buildings for its large, green dome and the nine bare-breasted maidens that supports its cornice. When the building was completed in 1912, it was the tallest in the British Empire and later was the home of the Vancouver Sun newspaper.
BulletWaterfront Station
Situated on West Cordova Street in Gastown, Waterfront Station was built in 1915 and is a Vancouver landmark for its handsome neo-classical architecture, graceful columns that front the building, ornate and domed ceiling, and the romantic murals of the Canadian Rockies that adorn the walls. Originally, the station was the Canadian Pacific Railway's western terminus but today serves the city's SkyTrain and SeaBus, as well as hosting retail shops and cafes.
BulletSam Kee Building
The Sam Kee Building was built in 1913 and, with a 1.5 m (4.9 ft) wide base, is the world's narrowest commercial building, according to the Guinness Book of Records (but presently disputed due to its 1.8-m (5.9-ft) second floor width). Situated in Chinatown, the landmark building includes a basement that originally housed public baths and is lit by Chinatown's only remaining glass pavement, built to allow sunlight into the space below.
BulletMarine Building
The Marine Building opened in 1930 and is one of Vancouver's landmark skyscrapers. The art deco building boasts a lavish lobby and brass elevators, and is included on guided walking tours by the Architectural Institute of British Columbia.
