Travel To The Most Renowned City In Panama Colon

Colón is one of the most renowned cities in Panama and it is also the capital of Colón Province. I heard a lot about this city and so made up my mind to travel here. The city is located on the Caribbean coast and at the point where the Panama Canal starts. The most fantastic thing that I like in Colon is its Observation Center, which is a park. The viewing platforms Canal Expansion Observation Center is over the Gatún Lake and Atlantic locks canal. You get a mesmerizing look of the city from this place and I recommend this to everyone who is traveling to Colon for the first time and want to see the best things there.

Burnaby: Enjoy The Fun Things To Do

The third largest city of British Columbia has a lot to offer to the tourists and locals. It is a stunning destination for a vacation. However, it is often neglected by tourist because of being close to Vancouver. However, I would advise going to Burnaby for 2 days when you come for a vacation in Vancouver. I can say that the trip is surely going to be worth it. Here are some of the best things that you can do when you are in Burnaby.

  • Travel back to the twenties

The 1920s is a popular era when it comes to architecture, culture, and music. If you are interested in the history of the city, visit Burnaby Village Museum. There are 31 building spreading across 4 hectares of land. Some of them are heritage building while the others are replicas. Wander around the streets and admire these buildings. Afterward, I took a ride in the C.W. Parker Carousel.

  • Enjoy the view

370 meters high Burnaby Mountain is a visual treat. It overlooks downtown Vancouver and Burrard Inlet. I spend the entire afternoon at the mountain top. I packed my lunch and chose a spot to enjoy the natural beauty. If you want to go hiking and biking, there are trails for doing that. If you are lucky you can spot wildlife creatures like raccoons, coyotes, deer, or black beers.

  • Go bird watching

My love for birds took me to Burnaby Lake. Here, you will find rare species of birds like osprey, great blue herons, green herons, and bald eagles. Do not miss out on this if you are a birdwatcher. You are surely going to love spending time here. 70 bird species live around this lake and you can watch some of these from the trails he runs along. You can also go rowing, canoeing, or kayaking.
