Montreal may get all the poutine and foie gras double-down glory, but there's a lot happening on Canada's West Coast.

Straddling prime agricultural land and pristine waters and right between the well-worn path to Asia, Vancouver is bursting with super-fresh sushi counters, superb speakeasies and even legit Neapolitan pizzas. And August is the perfect time to visit the normally gloomy, drizzly city, now soaked in sunshine and brimming with some of the best dim sum around.

Time to trek to Canada's best coast.
