5/23.- Vancouver Island, the Empress Hotel


The nostalgic romance of Victoria is perfectly illustrated by the Empress Hotel. Standing on the causeway in the magnificently picturesque Victoria harbour, surrounded by charming street lights holding twin baskets of colourful spring flowers, you can witness horse-drawn carriages pass by the red double-decker buses parked in front of the ivy-covered hotel. This luxurious hotel, built in 1905, is where traditional tea is served with scones and sandwiches every afternoon. Wander through the hotel and you will see the greatness and opulence of the British Empire refected in the Cystal Room, the polished wood pannelling, the flourishing potted plants, and the exotic carpeting.
