Montreal-is it Canada?

As most people know Canada is a federation, with a very interesting history worth researching. The reason I mention this is because Quebec, Montreal feels like a completely different Country. This goes beyond the language to the architecture, culture and even the design of the city. Having said that I equally loved my time in Montreal.

Tips

In my opinion Montreal can only be truly experienced through a bike ride around Du Mount Royal Park, along the docks of the St Lawrence river and around oldtown.

There are some great guides online, however the locals are very friendly so ask. These were a few of my favourite spots:
– Notre-Dame Basililica at night (Picture above)
– The view from Chalet Du Mont-Royal
– Eating Poutine at Poutineville
– Shopping at Mile End
