Travel In Toronto

by Lenita Carpinello

Some people are just at home in a city. The countryside they find too quiet and eerie, to far from modern civilisation as they prefer to experience it and simply too inconvenient when you just want to pop to the shop to stock up on coffee or a fresh pint of milk and other essential groceries.

For some people going on holiday means cutting themselves off from everything. They want to be as far away from everything that reminds them of the hustle and bustle of the modern world as their advance booking, long distance flight can possibly take them. For city lovers, however, this is not the point of a holiday. In fact, for city lovers, this simply would not be a holiday at all.

City travel can be exhilarating and eye opening and exploring the metropolitan and cosmopolitan hubs of other countries is certainly a great way to get emerged in a new culture pretty quickly. The world is home to many fabulous city break destinations but one Canadian city that you might really enjoy getting your teeth into is Toronto.

Be prepared to feel small on arrival as everything in Toronto is quite simply gigantic. The buildings scrape the skies. The vehicles are largely big, four track style affairs, which become necessary as soon as winter arrives with its three feet of snow and sub zero temperatures. Even the food comes in portions approximately twice as large as those we are used to consuming.

Upon arrival, get to grips with the geography of the city by taking a trip up the CN tower. The views from the top will give you a clear picture of the layout of the city and, on a clear day, are quite breathtaking to behold. Enjoy the cityscape while tucking into some award winning cuisine in the revolving restaurant at the top of the tower.

Shopaholic? Toronto is definitely the place for you. The aforementioned enormous department stores ought to keep you occupied for a while, but if this fails to satisfy, you can always head down to the sprawling underground shopping centre, which is also one of the warmest places to go should you choose to visit during the icy winter months.

Family travellers are sure to love the fabulous Science and Technology Museum. With an array of hands on exhibits and activities this one is sure to entertain and amuse parents every bit as much as it does their little ones.

There are many ways to budget for your trip to Toronto. Check out the hotel deals on Octopus Travel and try using Sky Scanner to find the best value Transatlantic flights.
