What to Expect in Vancouver: Travel Tips
Like most Canadian Cities, Vancouver is generally safe; violent crimes like robberies and shootings are rare, and tourists are unlikely to encounter any problems when visiting the city. There are, however, areas of the city that have a higher population of disadvantaged and homeless people, as well as problems with illegal drugs -- namely, Chinatown and the area east of Gastown. While it's not considered particularly dangerous to walk around these areas during the day, you should remain alert and take extra precautions at night. If you're going to be out late at night, consider taking a taxi back to your hotel. Haven't booked a room in Vancouver yet?
