Chinatown

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Interesting Chinatown"

Quote:
Chinatown is situated is downtown Toronto running through Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, pretty much right next to Kensington Market. From Union Station on Front Street West, Chinatown is a good half an hour walk away but it is possible to get there by streetcar which will only take about 10 minutes. I would advise walking there though as you will get a much better experience of the city and not miss any of the great things there are to see. Chinatown isn’t actually very old. It was only developed in the late nineteenth century but as of this year, it is one of the largest Chinatowns in North America. However, in Greater Toronto, there are multiple Chinatowns but this is always ref...Read More

Attraction | "A must in Toronto!"

Quote:
Unlike normal markets, Kensington Market is actually a district in the west of downtown Toronto. Surrounding this area is College Street to the north, Spadina Avenue to the east, Dundas Street to the south and Bathurst Street to the west, encompassing it into a square area. The easiest way to get to Kensington Market is by streetcar or to walk. If you do want to take a streetcar, here are the different ways you can do it:From the Bloor Subway: take the Spadina or Bathurst streetcar south. Get off at College or one or two stops further south. From Yonge/University Subway: take the College or Dundas streetcar west, getting off at Spadina or the next stop. From Union Station: take the Q...Read More

Yonge Street

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "I don't know any other street as big as this!"

Quote:
Yonge Street (pronounced ‘young’) used to be one of the longest streets in the world and has previously been in the Guinness Book of Records for this. It is near impossible to go to Toronto and not find yourself on a part of this street at some point or another. The road was built in 1794, making it 212 years old now and it is nearly a whopping 1.900km in length. If you end up on Yonge Street in downtown Toronto, you will easily find the Eaton Centre, a massive shopping centre spanning over multiple floors. Yonge Street is a great place to go shopping in Toronto because as well as the Eaton Centre, there are also many other lovely random shops to browse in as well as major chain stor...Read More

Toronto has so much to offer everyone and all budgets. There's a lot to do for free if you do your research and a lot of expensive things to do and see as well. If you're in need of directions, get off the subway at Union Station and turn left. Down the street is a tourist shop that can book trips for you, and will provide you with a downtown map for free (no need to book anything with them). The map has all major attractions highlighted well and if you want to go somewhere specific, the staff will draw directions on the map for you. Easy Peasy. Mostly the best attractions are all downtown so easy to get to and easily accessable by subway or rail car. As with most major cities, 'City Pass'...Read More

Eaton Centre

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Shopper's Heaven"

Quote:
During my time in Toronto, I wanted to make the most of the shopping opportunities. I was told the best place for this would be The Eaton Centre as it is the largest in the city. Situated in the heart of the city, downtown, you can find this shopping centre on Yonge Street and it takes up a whole blocks worth of space. You can find the biggest and main entrance on Queen Street although there are many other entrances you can choose from. Even if you don't know your way around downtown, you are bound to stumble across one of the entrances at some point or another. It is extremely hard to miss!! As for opening times, they are really good and they can be seen below. During the holidays and for...Read More
