We are visiting Canada at the start of June and arrive in Vancouver at lunchtime on a Saturday and have the whole of the following day in the city before we head off. We are staying at the Century Plaza hotel so are reasonably central (and will have a car but just want to leave it in the hotel car park until we head out of the city).
From reading the guidebooks and ideas from on TA I think we would like to visit the Gastown area, Chinatown, walk along the Coal Harbor Sea Wall and hire a bike to cycle round Stanley Park. The problem I am having is how to fit these together into a day (or day and a half) - how to get between each sight. Are they all within walking distance of each other or will we need to use public transport - looking at the Skytrain it doesn't seem to link to Stanley Park but might help with the hotel to Chinatown/Gastown section.
Any suggestions welcome.
Also, should we try and fit in Granville Island or are we just trying to fit in too much? I'd rather see fewer things and spend more time than have a whistle-stop tour of all the sights
