WHY TO VISIT CANADA

Montreal, a dynamic metropolis with francophone influences, should definitely be visited: Its old town, the Archaeological and Historical Museum, the boutiques in the subterranean town, its rich nightlife will all seduce you.

It old quarters, Stanley Park, the lovely beaches, great range of open air activities including whale watching on Vancouver Island will all contribute to you having a relaxing but fascinating time during your visit here.
