Toronto, Canada

Canada's largest city has been a major tourist destination for decades, and offers a great deal for the traveller keen to see the sights, and experience the vibrant lifestyle that Toronto offers.

With plenty of museums, the former largest standing free tower in the world, a rich cultural life, and areas of supreme natural beauty such as Niagara and Algonquin National Park all within striking distance, Toronto has become the most visited city in Canada, and many people visit every year, some coming for just a few days as part of a larger tour of the country, others taking advantage of cheap airfares and excellent shopping to visit Canada for a short city break from neighboring USA.


Toronto has all the style, excitement and exuberance of a major metropolis but, unlike most, it's also clean and well-run (the transport system actually works!), and it has the lowest crime rate of any major North American city.
 It is also, according to the UN, the most culturally diverse city in the world. Most big cities have a Chinatown and a Little Italy, but Toronto also has a Koreatown and a Little India, a Greek quarter (the Danforth) and a Portuguese enclave (along Dundas Street West).

Downtown Toronto is a compact area with a good bus, streetcar and subway system that connects the city districts. The downtown is also very clean and vibrant with people from all walks of life bustling about. Toronto is a safe city even at night when the city is still fairly busy and apart from a few select areas, the streets can be wandered unhindered at all hours.

1) CN Tower:
The CN Tower is a communications and observation tower standing 553.3 metres (1,815 ft) tall and is the tallest free standing tower in the Western Hemisphere. Formerley the World's tallest free standing structure is was surpassed by the Burj Khalifa and the Guangzhou Tower in 2009. The tower provides stunning views of Toronto and Lake Ontario along with an awe inspiring appreciation of how high you can look out to the sites below. It takes less than a minute to reach the look-out level in a glass-fronted lift. The tower provides a number of attractions to tourists such as the revolving 360 degrees Restaurant, a walk across a glass floor on the 113th storey, views from the Sky Pod that is 447 metres (1465ft) high and also a collection of entertainment attractions at the base of the tower
