Day 17.1 – CN Tower and Toronto Island

This was the last day in Toronto, and perhaps the last day in East Canada. After today we will continue our way to the west, the Banff National Park. So, we were trying our best to visit as many places as possible in Toronto!

Our first visit is the CN Tower! It is 553.33 m high and was once the highest tower in the world. It is still the most iconic structure in Toronto! And Today, we will go to the top!


We arrived pretty early. Since we have bought the combined ticket, we did not need to queue up and we just went directly inside.

The entry ticket is pretty expensive….What we have used is the “Toronto City Pass”

Here we go! See how “clean” the tower was! Each visitor need to go through the cleaner with very strong wind circulating you…Haha, very interesting

It seems that every iconic tower in the world would have a big shop or game center thing at the base. CN tower is not an exception. We will have to shop around when we left.

Let’s go up the tower!

After less than one minute, the Toronto city was under our view!

The Toronto Islands, where we will visit later by boat!

This was just like the Macau Tower. We were not feared by this!

After going up one more floor, you can feel the flesh air. But undoubtedly the view is obstructed, not as good as the floor below.

After having fun in the CN tower, we walk on our way to the ferry pier to the Toronto Islands!

This was the Harbour Tour Company I booked in GROUPON several months ago! The cheapest fare I have seen. Only about 50HKD per person with a return boat trip to the Island! Superb!

Having waited for several minutes, we got into the boat

Leaving the pier.

The seafront of Toronto from the boat was totally different. Spectacular view!

After about 20 minutes, we came to a totally different world.

Now we arrived the Toronto Islands.

Toronto Islands were the oasis from the Toronto city. People like to come to these islands for picnic, kayaking, gathering, you name it!

What a relaxing place!

We just wandered around the island.

Lake Ontario

I have never swum in the beach within a lake! So regret that I didn’t bring my swimming suit here….

This is so relaxing!

A primary school was found on the island.

Looking at the Toronto city from the Island. See the plane! It’s gonna crash with the CN Tower!

Beautiful Toronto

After relaxing on the island for 1-2 hours, we got back and continue with our journey!
