Financial District & Underground City Tips (22)

The world underneath Toronto


Not a place for tourists, but still fun to see. Hahaha, and it's a great way to walk from A to B without getting wet on a rainy day :-) This is the PATH : Toronto's Downtown Walkway linking 10 kilometres of underground shopping, services and entertainment. It's the 'underground' world of Toronto. The whole financial district has a walkway underneath linking the several office building with each other and giving the office employees a place to go for lunch or do some shopping.
On the map you can see the many walkways of the PATH and where it exactly is. You can't get lost here as there are many of these maps in the PATH walkways.

'Gold leaf covered' Royal Bank Plaza


The front building in this picture is a very remarkable building. It is the Royal Bank Plaza. This skyscraper is one that really catches the eye. It's wonderful how it plays with the light, reflects and shines. The reason for that is that the exterior is covered in gold leaf. Hahaha, I thought banks always kept their gold in a safe place and not outside of the building ;-)

The reason that there is gold on this building is the sun. The skyscraper has 14,000 windows and because of that, incredibly high heating and cooling bills. Having 2,500 ounces of 24-carat gold baked into the glass helps insulate the building and makes up for the installation cost. Hahaha, seems that they are clever money wise after all :-))

Mirror, mirror on the wall....


Another picture of the Sun Life Centre. Hahaha, I just can't get enough of these 'mirror' buildings :-) Although this photo looks more like a riddle of what it exactly is and what is reflecting in its windows.

Sun Life Centre


Another picture of a skyscraper. This is the Sun Life Centre. Sigh.... this was actually a very frustrating moment for me. The weather was great for taking photos but I didn't have my camera with me... arghhh!!!! Luckely Jacob had his one with him and he shot quite a few beautiful photos. All I could do was point out some of my favorite places of Toronto to him, hahaha, and imagine what a wonderful photo I could have taken as well.... like this one that Jacob made :-)

Downtown / Financial District


This is one of the favorite parts for me to walk around with my camera. There are so many glass buildings in this area that 'mirror' perfectly. Hahaha, I always end up taking lots of photos is this area of Toronto.

The Financial District

Stroll around the Financial District of Toronto with the tallest buildings in the country. There are more than 40 international banks and the second largest stock exchange in North America (TSE).
Moreover the area offers the worlds largest underground concourse for shopping.

Royal Bank of Canada

ROYAL BANK OF CANADA: One of the most futuristic building in Toronto, Royal Bank is also the biggest. Its golden reflective glass makes it very distinctive from afar. I really like this architecture. Very elegant & modern.

University Avenue

This is along University & Yonge, near where my best friend used to live. We'd always walk past here on the way to have some lunch or dinner in CHINATOWN.

Toronto is really a very convenient city if you live in downtown area. Chinatown is about 7 minutes walk from the University of Toronto & Eaton Centre is also about 7 minutes walk from Chinatown. By the way, Sears has bought over Eaton & the new store just reopened last November when I was in town. My best friend works for Sears now.
