Smart Saver Vancouver

Since we know summer can become quite expensive we wanted to give you some ideas on things to do with a discount.

If you have been thinking about going kayaking to beat the heat, going to Bowen Island might be a good option for you. You can kayak around the island and get beautiful scenery. And if you go on a Tuesday with your friend, you can get two for the price of one!

Another fun thing to do is to go to Squamish and take the Sea to Sky Gondola. The normal price for the gondola is about $40 dollars, but if you go after 5 pm on Saturdays you get a 50% discount. And if you’re feeling adventures you could hike up and take the gondola down for only $15.

If you like to go to amusement parks you should definitely check out Playland. This is the oldest amusement park in Canada and it’s located at Hastings Park. You can get discounted tickets for the park at 7 eleven.

Going a bit further away for Vancouver can become expensive, as renting cars isn’t always that cheap here. If you’re going to stay here for a longer period it might be a good idea to check out Modo. This car sharing service is similar to car2go and Evo, except that you can book the car for weekends an take it further away. You pay a monthly fee for the subscription, but that’s only about $8. The car comes with a credit card to pay for gas and you get the first 200 km for free, after that you pay 20 cents per kilometer.

I hope you are all having a great summer and I hope to see you at PuB NiGHT tonight, as it will be my last!

What to do on the weekend?

It is almost time for the weekend, so it is time to figure out what to do on the weekend. We have a few suggestions for you that you might want to check out before you make any plans!

18193778_10155234529877103_6254901922779113200_nOn Sunday we are planning on going to Bowen Island with the INTERNeX family. Bowen Island is a small island between Vancouver Island and Vancouver. Therefore, we are going by ferry to this awesome destination, which is going to be already an adventure itself. Once there you get the choice to do a hike, explore the island by scooter, do kayaking or to do stand-up paddling. You are still able to join if you would like to explore this island with us. If you want to know more about the event then check out our Facebook page and the blogpost.

If you still don’t have something planned for Saturday, we might be able to help you out with that. This weekend is the second weekend that Playland is open, so it is time to go onto all the rides and to let the adrenaline kick in. For only $36 you can get a day ticket and ride almost all rides. If you buy it online you will even save $3.

8158899125_27926f40d4_oWhen you are more into culture, Fort Langley might be the perfect place for you! Fort Langley is a small and old village only a few hours from Vancouver. While walking around in this village, you will discover all the wonders from the 19th century. If Fort Langley is a bit too far away, then you can choose to go to Gulf of Georgia Cannery in Steveston village. During your visit in Gulf of Georgia Cannery, you will learn about the history of the West Coast fishing industry. Both historic sites are free this year, so it is the time to explore and get to know British Columbia.

If you would rather experience culture by trying out different food, then you should definitely go to the Illumination Summer Night market. This market is held every weekend from May till September. There are over 200 different food and merchandise stands, so there is enough entertainment for the whole night. This year will also be the first year that it is together with a huge light show. The entrance fee is only $3, so it is definitely worth trying out.

See you at Bowen island or at next PuB NiGHT!
