Alaska Part1 : Vancouver & Anchorage

Alaska Part1 : Vancouver & Anchorage

As you can see, I have traveled quite a number of places but certainly, my trip in Alaska is 1 of the highlight thus far and will start with sharing my Vancouver & Anchorage visit. Hence have breakdown my trip into several post to avoid a lengthy one:

Part1 = Vancouver transit & Anchorage
Part2 = The journey to Seward & around the town
Part3 = Cruising (Hubbard Glacier/Juneau)
Part4 = Cruising (Skagway/Icy Strait Point/Ketchikan)
Part5 = City of Vancouver

As this is a free & easy trip, below are my travel itinerary which I have self-arranged:

Itinerary

To start with, departed KLIA via ANA airline and transit in Tokyo. We arrived in Narita but need to depart Haneda airport and hence we need to take an hour bus changing from 1 airport to the other. Haneda initially an airport catering for domestic flights but after the new renovation, I felt it was better than chitose airport. Can view more on my trip to Hokkaido in this link.

Arrived Vancouver in the afternoon, but the flight to Anchorage only departs at night hence thought it will be a better option just spend a night in a hotel near the airport after a long journey (traveled with my family) We stayed in Richmond where it is an Asian area where we can easily find a lot of asian food. As it is only spending a night there, didn’t manage to venture much on Vancouver as there is plan returning to this place at the end of the trip. The only highlight I have is we manage to catch a glimpse on how filming is done (my first time viewing it).

Exploring around the hotel area as we are all exhausted but found a nice river just opposite the hotel:

Next day, took ~6hrs flight from Vancouver to Anchorage which is the largest city in Alaska. I have rented a car throughout my days staying in Alaska before boarding the cruise ship. As expected, it is a large city with minimal public transportation. I wouldn’t imagine how can I travel around without a car and I made the right decision in getting one. We did not do much in Anchorage, its about driving around the city enjoying the weather and of course the backdrop of the magnificent snow mountains at the back. Especially people like us which seldom have experience looking at snows. It all depends what your expectation is for the trip. Sorry there is no LV or Hermes or any shopping of those kind, but rather its all about nature and beautiful scenery beyond your imagination is what you get. Sharing a couple of pictures I took around Anchorage downtown and some of the natural park we “randomly” visited

    Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to grasp a
    lot approximately this, such as you wrote the book in it or something.
    I feel that you can do with a few percent to force the message house a little bit,
    but instead of that, that is excellent blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    You actually make it appear really easy together with your
    presentation but I to find this topic to be actually one thing which I think I’d by no means understand.
    It sort of feels too complex and very vast for me. I’m having a look ahead on your subsequent post,
    I’ll try to get the hold of it!

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all.

    Nevertheless think about if you added some great pictures or
    videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
    with pics and clips, this website could definitely be one of
    the best in its niche. Excellent blog!
