Things To Do / Self Walking Tour At Gastown
icon-camera-retro Gassy Statue
He is a very important person for Vancouver, because NO him, NO Vancouver. He is the first person who lived the place. He was a British marine, and he started his bar at this place. And after he started to live there, the other people has started to live there. The bar was a place for people who take a break. “Gassy“(noisy) is His nickname, that’s why this town is called “Gas” “town”.
icon-clock-o The Steam Clock
A clock that works by steam power is only one around the world. This is kind of a symbol for Gastown. It makes steam from the top, and make sounds of steam in every 15 mins. Pretty clock. Usually many people try to take photo of that.

The name of shop is “Hill’s Native Art Gallery Vancouver”
It is nice if you just to see them. If you are lucky, you can see how to make totem poles on 3rd floor. Also you can buy the arts if you want.

There are many homeless people. They are usually sitting or sleeping on streets, chatting, selling something (stolen?) and smoking “something”.
Many of them ask people to get money. If you go there, you need to be careful to be stolen or something like that happen…
But the sights, atmosphere and smells are really “different” from my experiences, so actually honestly I felt simply good to walk there. like “oh, it’s a different world..”
I recommend you not look at the people eyes, otherwise, they will ask you money more times.
Nice art, I like it!
You need to be careful to leave your bike here!
