I am flying in from Australia so by the time i arrive in Vancouver it will be a Wednesday afternoon, so that day is out. On Saturday i need to get to Seattle to meet friends as we are going on an Alaskan cruise. I will be on my own till i get to Seattle. What must i do and see in Vancouver Thursday and Friday? Is a day trip to Whistler a must? What else should i not miss around Vancouver with such a short time there?
Also i was looking at staying at Riviera on Robson street, is this a good location a single female?
Lastly is it best to get a bus or train to Seattle? I want to get there so i can see a bit of Seattle before the cruise leaves on Sunday but if i can see some scenery on the way all the better. This is in September.
Thanks so much for any help.
