The City of Coquitlam
Travel and Life Guide

Coquitlam in British Columbia, Canada, was one of the best cities we had lived and explored during the tours.
The city is just close by Vancouver downtown and some other neighboring cities (they call Tri-Cities) such as Burnaby, Port Moody, and New Westminster.
Make sure to visit this "booming", if you have the time and chance to visit Vancouver or a city close by.
