    Montreal, je t'aime!

    My personal favourite North American City! It's one of the cities where you can find more or less everything in close proximity, although taking the metro makes it a lot easier. It's very lively and young, full of students. The Old Port area and the Plateau/Miles End have a lot of Quebecois charme and the Downtown area is good for shopping. For going out either the Old Port area or the Rue Crescent off St Catherine Street are perfect. Also, check out the museums, they're great!

    Insider Tip:Check out the Parc de la Fontaine in the Plateau Area. Also the all the cafés and little shops around Avenue du Mont Royal and Rue St Dennis are worth checking out. For a perfect refreshing in Winter or Summer, go to Leo le Glacier an Italian Ice Cream cafe at Avenue Duluth close to Parc de la Fontaine

    Honesty I think value for money was very not good for me. Very expensive transit pass when I using only once. also high tax must be made me spending less money. But this city was give me inspire. High historic city always can takes lots of beautiful pics and memories.

    Insider Tip:If you will staying at least 3days. Just buy the 3 days ticket !! That is very useful and If you just stay a day. then buy 1day pass. That will be save your money apparently.

    Rainy Daze

    Had a great trip but was rained out on the first few days and spent most of them lost. Make sure to plan your trip and take full advantage of the metro. Also never eat in Old Montreal, it's super expensive!

    Insider Tip:Make sure to plan ahead!
