Victoria, British Columbia`s capital city is humming.
This lovely city is massaged by a gentle climate where the flowers are in bloom all year round. On the streets above the harbor you will see many summer tourists and some residents, cameras dangling, brochures in hand, crowd on to double-decker buses and horse drawn caravans for tours of the city.
The harbour`s a buzz with float planes jet-propelled catamarans, yachts, kayaks and tour boats. People are constantly drifting back between harbor side, the Empress Hotel, the BC Parliament Buildings and the Royal Provincial Museum. Or they head up Government Street to browse the shops, or dine in one of the delicious restaurants and side cafes.
