Vancouver has made TIME Magazine’s 50 greatest places to visit in 2023. The annual listing of 50 extraordinary travel destinations ranges from big-name cities to off-the-grid sites.
To compile the list, TIME solicited nominations of places—including countries, regions, cities and towns—from its international network of correspondents and contributors, with an eye toward those offering new and exciting experiences.
The accolade highlights the successful collaborative efforts of businesses that make-up the tourism industry in Vancouver and local government which has helped rebuild demand for the destination. From securing iconic events like Laver Cup 2023, the 2025 Invictus Games, and FIFA World Cup 2026, to the city’s newly minted MICHELIN Guide, there’s no question that Vancouver is a city with a thousand reasons to be at the top of travel lists this year.
