What do I say? It's a famous place where we should see. There are good restaurants and bars where you can see high class people enjoy. We felt safe and were pleasant to walk around and took pictures. Don't go to the China Town nearby. It's another world in a not very good sense.

I am more of a pub type person than fine dining so this place suited perfectly. There is a casual vibe and the weather was perfect for sitting outside. Interesting history and nice old buildings. Plenty of choices for food and drink. You must see the steam powered clock!

Interesting shops of different types. An old world feel in a modern city. Great restaurants with wonderful food and atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed strolling the streets.

I love to visit Gastown. Shopping and restaurants all over the place. Lots of fun surrounds it. Recommend to visit the gas town.

I love the energy in the area very vibrant. Gastown has lots of small shops and places to eat. Don't forget to check out the clock.
