Smart Saver Vancouver

As all of you surely have experienced already, discovering Vancouver can be pretty expensive. But of course, you want to see as much as possible in and around Vancouver when you are here, right? That is why we offer some awesome deals in collaboration with our partners!


A tour with a Hop-On, Hop-Off Bus is a great way to get an overview of the city and visit the most famous spots. You can decide yourself on which of the 20 stops you want to step out and spend time. Highlights of the tour are the Vancouver Lookout, Granville Island and Stanley Park. Even on rainy days, the open-top buses allow stunning views. While sitting in the bus, you can listen to a commentary about the spots.

Westcoast Sightseeing is currently offering a winter promotion, so you get a 48-hours ticket for the price of a 24-hours one. An entire weekend to explore the city! In addition, you can use the INTERNeX Promo Code internex10 to receive a 10% discount. Check out their website for any additional information and offers and book your activity via this link.

How was your weekend?

Rise and shine, a new week has just started. That means getting back to work and look forward to the next weekend. But before we talk about the next weekend, I will first tell how my weekend was.

On Friday my weekend began with ice-skating at Robson Square. Since I am Dutch, I enjoyed the time on the ice. After a while, we decided it was time to get off the ice and do some real sport: dancing in the club. And that is exactly what we did. We first drank a beer with my 62-year-old neighbor, since it was her birthday the day before. When we learned her a lot of new things she might or might not wanted to know, we moved to the Yale Saloon for some line dancing and bull riding.

The next day my alarm went off. What? On Saturday? Yes, it was time to get my parents from the airport. I went with them to their new temporary place to get a drink before I showed them around on Granville Island. We had a really nice dinner and because they were beginning to fall asleep because of their jetlag, it was the right time for them to head back to the hotel. That also meant time for me to meet the others to go to a hardstyle party. Everyone really enjoyed this music (“How do you have to dance on this?”). After a while, I headed home to prepare myself for a busy Sunday.

Then Sunday was there. I went back to my parents’ hotel to have breakfast. When we walked out of the hotel, the hop on hop off bus was waiting for us to get in. We drove around Vancouver and saw Gastown, the lookout tower, fly over Canada and Stanley Park. At the end of the day, the bus brought us back to the hotel. We did some games (which I won of course) and had dinner. I invited them to my Jacuzzi on the roof to end the day relaxing.

I can say I had a really nice weekend. I am already counting down to the next one. But first, there will be a pub night in between where you can tell me all about your adventures during your weekend. So I hope to see you all at TAPshack this Wednesday!

INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend!

Middle of August and we have to make the most of the summer and Vancouver !

If you don’t know what to do during the weekend here I give you some ideas.

Big Bus Route Map

On Saturday, we  go to the Big Bus Tour around Vancouver (Remember that the 3 winners of the “Best Rockies Trip picture” win a 2 day pass for free).

This hop-on, hop-off bus offers you the opportunity to go all over the wonderful and most important places in Vancouver and the best part of it is that you can hop on, hop off as often as you want to take pictures, to enjoy the views or just simply to drink a coffee.

Meeting point:  Gastown Big Bus Welcome. Stop #1  (On Water Street just 20 steps from the Steam Clock )

When:  Saturday 17th August, at 1.30 p.m.

Price: Student pass for 1 day: $37. Student pass for 2 days: $42

For those who prefer a frenetic journey, I have another idea, but this one crazier. The annual Zombie Walk is here. This walk has going for years, and each one is getting bigger and bigger.

Please, do not vandalize anything and obey the police. That’s very important !

If you want to survive to the Zombie Walk, check it out this map, which will tell you where to go to get the supplies necessary to battle the brain eating zombies.

Survival Map Downtown

Date: August 17, 2013 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. (assemble around 3 p.m.)

Where: Starts at the Vancouver Art Gallery and the walking dead then proceed to roam the streets of downtown. The zombie infestation travels up Robson towards Denman Street. It continues to English Bay and ends at the laughing men statues.

INTERNeX is happy to introduce one of our Bronze Sponsors for the upcoming summer party for our 10 year anniversary: Big Bus!

Big Bus is a very popular tour operator company that takes you on hop on – hop off tours in one of the biggest cities in Western Canada. They have a lot of special trips around Vancouver that allow you to go on great sightseeing adventures of this beautiful city. Would you like to do a 2 day tour or just a one day tour? Or would you like to get one of the many packages that allow you to see the aquarium, Capilano suspension bridge, Vancouver lookout, Chinese garden, Stanley park, Grouse mountain and many, many more!

Have you just arrived in Vancouver or have you been too busy with your work/internship to take a proper tour of the city? Then Big Bus is definitely worth it! In the two day tour alone you can see all the spectacular areas; English Bay, Stanley Park, Granville Island, Entertainment District, Robson Street Shopping Street, Chinatown and Gastown. The awesome thing is you don’t have to stay in the open air bus the entire time, you can get off whenever you want to do your own exploring and get on to the next bus at one of the designated stops 🙂 A one day pass and a two day pass gives you unlimited access for the whole day to jump on and off the buses!

It’s really easy, you can buy your ticket at the INTERNeX office, at a kiosk in Gastown, or with the bus driver. They accept cash, debit and all major credit cards. We hope you enjoy your future big bus tour! Tickets are also good for Big Pink sightseeing (pink double Decker’s) as well as False Creek Ferries.
