Eating

Favorite brunch spot: Sophie’s in Kitsilano! Or if you wanted to do a fancy brunch, Joe Fortes! (Their chicken and waffles are the best EVER.)

Vancouver Must-Eat: Phnom Penh is a mouth-watering-ly good Cambodian food place located in Chinatown. It’s definitely a local favorite and is my number 1 most recommended place to eat when visiting Vancouver! Dishes you MUST order when you’re there: The Chicken Wings, the Butter Beef, and the Beef Luc Lac Rice!

Favorite cafe: If you’re looking for some more centralized gems, I love 49th Parallel on W4th Ave or Prado Café!

Pampering

Best spot for mani/pedi: Luminous Nail Spa is my GO-TO when I get my nails done. They do an AMAZING job every single time!

Working Out

Favorite spin classes: Eastwood Sanctuary! Not only do they motivate the heck out of you to sweat your butt off, their Gastown location is so aesthetically pleasing you’ll never want to leave!

Favorite yoga studio: Open Door Yoga in Kerrisdale; it’s a small one but has very reasonable rates and is still a great facility!

Best shoes/accessories store: A quirky shoe shop to check out in Vancouver is Fluevog in Gastown. They have a really eccentric style but is a born and bread Vancouver brand!

Favorite local brands: Aritzia and Oak + Fort. Both brands have grown so much since they first started in Vancouver, and both are seen everywhere on everyone in Vancouver.

Learning

Best library: I love our Central Library on the corner of Robson and Homer. The architecture is absolutely stunning. It actually inspires me to study harder!

Favorite music event: The Squamish Valley Music Festival. They bring amazing artists to small districts so close to home. I feel like they really represent BC well.

Wreck Beach

If you aren’t afraid of a little nudity, Wreck Beach is definitely worth checking out in the summer. It is a nude beach but no worries! You can definitely opt out and keep your clothes on. I love Wreck because of its good vibes! I always have a great time there.
