While I’m off gallivanting in the Philippines, a few blogger friends have graciously agreed to fill in for me by contributing to a series on their top three travel tips for their countries of expertise. As Che of Indieberries once said, bloggers are the new Lonely Planet. Today, I have my real life friend Tyne of Love & Other Blogs, a Filipina based in Canada.
Hi there! I’m Tyne. I wish to make a difference through writing and photography. I aspire to inspire through my passions and faith journey, which I write about on my blog.
My friend Dee asked me to be her blog’s caretaker for the day to which I gladly said yes, feeling honored to write for her site. So I’ll share my travel tips about Canada, my new home. Here we go.
Canada is the fourth largest country in the world by land area. If you plan on visiting Canada, there are a number of tourist spots waiting for you to explore!
Toronto is one of them. Canada’s largest city, Toronto is home to approximately 3 million people with great cultural diversity. Consistently ranked among the top livable places in the world, it is also the top tourist destination in Canada offering a number of interesting places for a visitors to enjoy.
But first, you have to take note of these 3 things before jumping on to book your flights:
(1) Decide what you want to do here.
As Canada has 4 seasons, you need to determine what you prefer doing on your holidays. Each season offers a wide variety of activities you can enjoy doing. You need to get the most of the time you spend here so it’s important that you plan ahead.
(2) Choose the timing for your vacation.
Once you have decided on what you want to do, you now know in which season to come here. It’s imperative that you know the timing so you get to fully experience the best of your chosen season.
If you are curious about how cold is the “Canadian winter”, you can book between late November to March. The coldest time is usually in February. I’d say good luck on this adventure! Haha!
You can do ski, skating or enjoy a red wine beside a fireplace on a cottage. I would suggest for you to come here around December for a feel of White Christmas.
Spring Time is that long awaited season after a dreaded winter. It starts from April and ends in May. It’s the time for visiting parks for flowers viewing. High Park is the best place to go to view the beautiful Cherry Blossoms. In there, you can have the closest experience to Japan’s Cherry Blossoms.
On the other hand, if you are looking for more outdoor activities, then come and enjoy chilling on patios or cottages from June to August. You will definitely have fun doing some sightseeing tours to Niagara Falls, Toronto Islands and visiting many other famous tourist attractions in Canada. There are just a number of things you can do during summer time here. You can check out See Toronto Now for more tips.
Moreover, I bet you will also love Autumn. Surely, you will appreciate the fusion of the colors yellow, orange, red and gold. The weather is not too cold plus you can enjoy dressing up. It is the best time to bring out the coats, the boots and all the chic accessories. Autumn is an awesome time to be stylish!
(3) Prepare yourself to enjoy your holiday!
With a variety of fun ideas that are available to you, you will definitely be able to make the most of your stay here. So before packing all your stuff, brace yourself and make sure that you are ready to experience the bests of Canada. And do not forget to bring all your zest for adventure with you!
