INTERNeX Canada: Fun Facts about Vancouver

Today, Stereotypes map of Vancouver! I found this map while I was looking for information about living in Vancouver. Maybe at the first moment, in front of your computer, in the other part of the world… this map can not seem very useful.

But after a few weeks… all makes sense. It’s very funny to see it after discover Vancouver. Of course it is only a joke; you don’t have to take it word by word. There are others wonderful things, which not appear in the map like monuments or parks. However, I’m totally agree with some descriptions:

  • “Hipster central”: The Mount Pleasant, stretching from Cambie Street to Clark Drive. A lot of hipsters over there but there are wonderful houses and a lot of shops too… it isn’t Downtown but is a neighborhood with a lot of things to do.
  • “Old European/ Asian/ Philippines”: It was funny, because I live right here. With a Philippines old woman. I have to say that is a beautiful residential area; each house has its own garden and it’s very quiet.
  • “Hoteland”in Downtown: It’s an obvious stereotype, but is the best zone for live the first days while you are looking for a house.

And you, what do you think about the stereotype map? It’s true?
