    What's it like to study in Canada?
    Canadians and other locals are very open and tolerant towards immigration. It is challenging to visit other cities outside Metro Vancouver because you need a car. BC doesn’t offer a lot of trains or buses to other cities like Kelowna.

    What's it like to study in Canada?
    The locals which are Canadians are very friendly and being an international student I am treated very well by them. They never misbehave with me, it has been six months and I have not experienced any problem yet. There are many places to visit such as Niagara Falls, Banff etc. but I have not been there as they are situated as different cities.

    What's it like to study in Canada?
    Canada, as a country is good, especially that Canada is considered as first world country. The air is fresh, no pollution, and no traffic. Services like getting my SIN and Health card is fast and efficient. Food commodities like meats, vegetables are very fresh and affordable. I have a chance to travel to other cities and booked a hotel there before my class started, and my experience there was good and memorable. Service of hospitality industry like hotels and airport is excellent.
