    Small and Clean

    Toronto is a very nice place to visit. Casa Loma is a must! The people were very friendly. Too much construction going on but I'm looking forward to visiting again when the work is done and in warmer weather!

    Sightseeing

    Actually Toronto is not a good place for sightseeing, but I had bad weather as well and my friends there suggested to go there in summer cause it is way more fun then. Public Transportation (TTC) is the worst I have seen in the whole world. Also TTC employees doesn't know or don't want to tell you which train or bus to take. It took me a long time to figure out what bus to take at 4am in the morning to go to the airport. It is the 300A bus. You can find the route on the internet.

    Insider Tip:Aquarium is a new museum and worth to go.

    My kind of City!!

    Toronto was incredible. Maybe because there was this amazing mix of big city and cool suburban town when you get up to casa Loma side of town and hitching a streetcar out to the beaches is just incredible he diversity in one city!! Kinda fell in love with Tim Horton donuts became a regular breakfast for me! If not too bothered about CN tower don't bother is as up there for about half an hour and is so expensive. The people are amazing too,

    Insider Tip:Kensington market, bloor street, Chinatown, The beaches neighbourhood. Niagara Falls is a must see however it has kinda turned into a massive lame attraction where there is a commercial town nearby to feed the truckloads of tourists. If Scott pilgrim geek like me check out sonic boom, casa Loma and honest Eds, as well as Alberta avenue :) the houses fascinate me.

    Money Spends in Toronto

    Toronto is a cool city to go to, lots of good history there. Went in Nov & it was much colder than I expected, so be sure to check the weather. Most of the places I went to were relatively close, except for the zoo which took over an hour to get to. The subway system could be improved for travelers to make it easier to navigate to different places. Toronto & Canada for that matter is a bit expensive, with the sale tax at 13%+. For the meals be prepared to spend more for smaller portions.

    Insider Tip:Take more money than you think you need, because foreign currency spends fast.

Canada: Itinerary

Located in the province of British Columbia, Canada’s third largest city is a traveller’s dream come true complete with a buzzing city centre and a host beaches, bays and lagoons. Add to this some great places to go shopping and a vibrant nightlife and it isn’t difficult to see why it is one of Canada’s most popular destinations.
