Canada consists of 10 provinces, with its capital Ottawa located in the province of Ontario. Toronto, the country's largest city, is also in Ontario. Cheap flights to Canada are available to the Toronto Pearson International Airport, which is the busiest airport in Canada. Frequent Canada flights are also available to international airports in Vancouver and Calgary. All Canada's major airports are accessible from highways, and bus services connect the airports to the city centres. For example in Toronto, more than 10 bus and coach routes join the airport and the city. Other than that, taxis are always a convenient option, though arguably they cost more.
Canada has 17,000 km of expressways, and hence going from one city to another by car is very popular. For travellers on a tighter schedule, domestic flights with low airfare are available and flights between large cities are frequent. Canadian National Railway also operates throughout Canada; however, intercity passenger transportation is now very limited. All cities have at the very minimum a bus system for public transport, but almost all major cities, including Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Calgary, have a well-developed rapid transit system. For example, the Vancouver SkyTrain has 3 lines and 47 stations. Commuter train systems also exist in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal.
For those who are fond of natural scenery, the Canadian Rockies straddling the British Columbia/Alberta border and Niagara Falls at the south of Ontario are definite items on their itineraries. The best way to appreciate the breathtaking beauty of the Rockies is to drive from Banff to Jasper, passing through the UNESCO heritage site, Banff National Park and Lake Louise. Even if you have seen the Niagara Falls from across the US borders, the Canadian side of the Falls is still worth a visit: take one of the ‘Maid of the Mist' boats to feel the strength of nature up-close.
The cuisines differ hugely between English Canada and French Canada. The English Canadian cuisine is largely similar to the American and British, while dishes in Quebec often have French origins. The most famous Canadian food product is Maple Syrup, due to the abundance of maple trees in the country. Poutine, composed of French fries and fresh cheese curds, is also a widely recognised Canadian dish. Save on your airfare to Canada and enjoy the excitement at night. Visit one of the many pubs and night-clubs in the major cities, where live music and band performances are often arranged.
