Don’t be put off. It’s not what you’re thinking… the namesake of this historic district at the northeast end of Vancouver’s downtown was "Gassy" Jack Deighton… and no, it’s not what you’re thinking. “Gassy” was a barkeep and Yorkshire seaman who came to Vancouver with $6, his native wife, and a yellow dog. He started the area’s first saloon in 1867, back when “gassy” meant talkative. Today, this area is a delightful mix of old architecture and a modern social and business scene. You’ll find hip boutiques and cafés in this home of the famous Gastown Steam Clock. The district’s reputation as a favorite drinking spot continues at numerous trendy nightclubs. The cobblestone streets are home of the city’s biggest tech and media firms.

Although it's already winter, the autumn in Gastown, Vancouver is still there. It's a good time to walk on the road and take photos. Old cars, old-fashioned red brick buildings, cobblestone paved paths, exquisite roadside coffee shops and firelike maple leaves are so beautiful! Photo by @ Liang - Sir

Feel another North American style in Vancouver
Vancouver is one of the most prosperous cities in North America, the city with the most Chinese, and it is natural to feel like you are here. Of course, the city of Vancouver is also full of different charms. My favorite is the Gastown Gastown. There is a very famous small attraction here in the steam. I can always see many tourists gathered here, but not all. Point, it will also be whistling when the time is fun! There are many creative shops around
, there are also hot nightclubs, modern restaurants and souvenir shops. It feels like a perfect combination of history and modernity. It is no wonder that it will become the world's fourth-ranked fashion district.
and not far from the gas town, there is also a boring sight called Canada Square, which is also the landmark building in Vancouver. I think it is normal, but here is a walk around the sea, blowing the sea breeze to see the distant scenery. not bad.
