You Can Ride A Christmas Train Through A Park Of Over 3 Million Lights In Canada

Experience the magic of an 18-year-old Canadian tradition.

Canada might just be the world's most underrated holiday destination. Many people are often discouraged to choose the country as a vacation spot for the winter due to its cold and snowy reputation, but that shouldn't be a reason not to go!

There are several mesmerizing holiday celebrations going on every year across the country, and they're well worth a visit. One of them takes place in the heart of Vancouver, at the world-renowned Stanley Park. Every year, the park is decorated with over 3 million twinkling lights, illuminating its paths and green spaces with warmth and a colourful glow.

Perhaps the main attraction of the festival is the Bright Nights Christmas Train, which takes passengers on a magical tour of the park. The train travels everywhere in the area - around the lake, through tunnels and past dozens of holiday displays, including a giant gingerbread house.

Aside from the train, there are also a slew of other festive events that will take place at the park, including a live musical performance by Santa and walking tours through light tunnels and other massive installations. Those exploring by foot will also be treated to free popcorn, roasted chestnuts and hot chocolate.
