Canada - What can you expect

The country and its people are simply fabulous. Here you will experience cordiality and helpfulness like rarely anywhere else on the Well. Despite the proximity to America, the Canadians have retained their individuality and in certain places the Canadians are closer to Europe. The country is huge and very varied. The Canadians are very imaginative and implement ideas in a targeted manner. Of course, since the nearest neighbor often lives far away, one is used to helping oneself. Whoever visits Canada will be fascinated.

Suggestion daily budget – 60-80 CAD (Note: This is a budget suggestion, which assumes that you are as free as possible to stay overnight, eat out a little, cook most of your meals yourself and that your vehicle is not the big fuel guzzler. With the budget tips below you can reduce this number at any time. However, if you want to stay in more demanding accommodation or eat out more often, you can expect this amount to be much higher).

TIps for first visit

1. Prepare your food – Canada is generally not favorable. It is best to buy fresh vegetables and fruits but also meat at the Farmers Market. There is good quality at a reasonable price.

2. Saving while driving – The best way to explore the city is to use public transport. These are usually the cheapest way to explore the city. Unless you’re motorized yourself.

3. Check where the locals eat – Canada has a lot to offer when it comes to food. Especially in the west the Asian influence is big which is shown in countless take aways that offer everything from Chinese, Japanese to Korean. But the food is nowhere cheap.

Do’s and don’ts

One should not drink alcohol in public. The Canadian is proud and hangs the national flag in front of his house to show his patriotism. In the restaurant or cafe you should always leave a tip when paying. The reason is that the wages are very low and tipping is a wage component. 10% is the minimum. If you are very satisfied with the service, you can also give more.
