Quebec City boasts so very much to recommend it; with its wealth of museums, theatres, galleries, incredible restaurants, cafés and buzzing nightlife.
Highlights are in abundance, but a few Western & Oriental favourites include: a tour of Old Quebec, which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the only walled city north of Mexico in the Americas; a stay in the famous Château Frontenac, perched on the top of a headland overlooking the St Lawrence River; and the Quebec Winter Carnival, one of the world's major winter festivals held at the end of January each year with many activities and displays to thrill and entertain all ages.
French influence permeates everything in this Canadian city, and one of the best ways to enjoy Quebec en Francais is via its amazing selection of eateries. Local dishes to try include cretans, poutine and pea soup, all washed down with a craft beer from one of the city’s many top breweries. Old Quebec is the place to head to if you want a top-end gastronomic experience such as the famous Saint-Amour.
For families, the city boasts a waterpark and aquarium, while history buffs will love the abundance of galleries and museums. Head to the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency for a view and photo opportunity of these magnificent falls.
