Vancouver Island's Pacific coast is a geographical and ecological wonder. Around the southern tip of Vancouver Island Canada, where BC's capital city of Victoria BC is located, one will find stunning rocky shoreline and sandy beaches. On the eastern shore by Georgia Strait are the cities of Sidney and North Saanich which are very populated. Sidney is a BC Ferries terminal and millions of travellers have made there way to and from the Lower Mainland and Greater Vancovuer through this port.
Victoria and Capital Region BC are rich with history both indigenous (Native Peoples) and colonial. The capital city Victoria was named after Queen Victoria, and tea at the Empress Hotel in Downtown Victoria remains a popular tourist attraction. Along with the Empress Hotel, Victoria BC's rich history and culture offer The Legislative Assembly Building, Chinatown, National and Provincial Parks, BC Museum of Culture and Anthropology, the Emily Carr House, and many more wonderful BC Canada travel and tourism opportunities.
