    Sydney has the Opera House....and Vancouer has the sails of Canada Place. This building is becoming a recognizable icon of Vancouver. Canada Place is located on the waterfront and is a port of call for cruise ships from around the world. The complex also houses an Imax theatre, Convention centers and a World Trade Center.

    The White Sails of Canada Place

    Canada Place is a great way for a newcomer to immediately grasp the flavour of Vancouver, with the busy harbour and cruise ships in the fore and majestic mountains as a backdrop. When I first moved to Vancouver this was a favourite spot. I would grab a coffee from the nearby train station and go as far out to the 'bow' as possible to watch the seaplanes take off and land. Of course Canada Place is also home to offices, the convention centre, and the PanPacific Hotel, which is first class.

    If you want to get some close up views of massive cruise ships and you are venturing around downtown, take the time to visit Canada Place.

    Canada Place is no doubt one of Vancouver's more unique buildings and brings character to Vancouver's Harbour.

    Canada Place also has an IMAX Theatre if your up for some entertainment. The link below has another link to IMAX so you can see what is playing.

    Canada Place and the Cruise Ships

    Canada Place is one of the the most recognizable buildings in downtown Vancouver. It's currently the city's Convention Center, although I wonder, how much internal space these sail-shaped tents can provide. Nevertheless, it's a beautiful architecture to photograph, especially from Stanley Park or Burrard Inlet. Canada Place is also the main terminal for many Alaskan cruise ships, bringing in extra tourists in the summer.

    It's fun to walk the Canada Place Promenade alongside the docked cruise ships. You can see the many activities happening at different levels of the ship at the same time.

    This remarkable structure juts out into the Burrard Inlet as if it were pier. In fact, it serves as a pier, when cruise liners, warships, and other vessels dock here. It also serves as a large convention center, and has a large IMAX theatre. The architecture of the place itself is unique, with sails raised above its long structure. Because of this, some people have remarked that it looks a bit similar to Sydney's Opera House.

    The Canada Place is great to walk around and to snap pictures of. It provides great views of the city's harbor and downtown as well. Finally, if you want a good IMAX theatre, then this is the place.

    Raise the sails!

    Canada Place is a cruise ship terminal adjacent to the Pan Pacific Hotel. If you come here in the summer time, you'll see many different cruise ships docked here.

    If you ever see a picture of Vancouver on TV, chances are you're seeing a shot of the Canada Place cruise ship terminal.

    Visit Canada Place

    Built in the shape of a stylised cruise ship, Canada Place houses a plush hotel, offices, shops, exhibition halls, restaurants and an IMAX cinema. At least, it will once it's finished. The bow of the 'ship' is still under construction, and a lot of it was closed off when I visited one overcast Saturday, although the hotel is certainly there, as is the cinema. Still, you get some great views from the deck which runs round the upper level of the structure, notably of the north shore, Stanley Park and downtown. Canada Place's distinctive 'sails' are regarded as one of Vancouver's landmarks, and are recognisable from far away.

    CANADA PLACE Convention and Exhibition Centre as well as the cruise terminal are found here. Ironally enough, despite the reputation of attracting millions of people annually, it was quite calm when I visited. However, I do like the design of the complex.

    The Canada Place facility is definitely a wonderful structure to see, especially in the summer when one or more cruise ships are docked beside it.
