Finally our big day comes! Today is the day we are going to the famous Niagara Falls, one of the highlights of our 1 month grad trip! We got up very early and sits just outside my uncle home. What a sunny and wonderful day to the Niagara falls.

Holly’s Uncle drives us to the nearest metro station so that we can take the metro to the bus station to Niagara Falls.

Here is the bus station in Toronto.

I have purchased two return tickets in advance from megabus, at 10CAD per person! So cheap! And it left the bus station on time. After one hour and so, we arrived at the Niagara Fall bus station, which is unfortunately located quite far away from the falls itself. Normally people would take the bus to the falls, which cost about 2.5CAD. But as we have plenty of time, we decided to walk to the falls, which takes about 30 mins. The road is in very good condition!

After walking for 30 mins, we arrived at the hotel near the falls. We went in to go to toilet and looked at those souvenirs.

Afterwards we walked along the river, heading directly to the Falls!

Niagara Falls consists of two falls, the American Falls, which is located in the America side, and the Horseshoe Falls, which is the most famous fall which has the horseshoe shape. You probably will see the American Falls first, which is the picture below.

You see within the American Falls actually there is a small 15m wide fall called the Bridal Veil Falls.

After passing the American Falls, you will find the Horseshoe Falls in front of you! I am getting so excited that I cant help taking photos at all times!

The feeling is so strong! What happened if you fall off? There are several man who have fallen off the falls with injuries only. Isn’t it possible?IMG_4744

After visiting the falls, we went to the shopping mall right next to the falls to see some souvenirs. I like this so much! But it is so expensive…

Then we went to the Skylon Tower! It was built in 1964 and process the best aerial observation point of the Niagara Falls! A must go place.

You need to go a little bit upslope to reach the base of the tower

IMG_4752
Below the tower…is a big game centre…a waste of space

Before you get to the top, you should get a voucher from anywhere to get the “save 2CAD coupon”. After using the coupon, the entrance fee will be about 12CAD. Or else, you can pay it online with a discount rate (but i do not recommend it as if the weather is bad you will not want to go up…). Ref: http://www.skylon.com/

IMG_4756
It only takes 52 seconds to go up, and you can see the wonderful view at the top! Note: The photo below is not from a postcardXD!
