Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

A very nice and big cultural sculpture made out of grey granit by Alvin Karnak made in 1986 and moved to the actual place in 1987.
As a traditional sculpture from the Inuit it was used as a landmark and navigational aid. It represents the northern friendship and hospitality.
The arms and feet, when pointed in a certain direction indicated the way to go for navigation. It signifies safety, hope and friendship. In the Inuit language the name Inukshuk means "in the likeliness of a human".
You can find a plaque to explain its significance.

The Inukshuk is an Inuit monument at English Bay in Vancouver. Inukshuks are a symbol from the north polar region of the world especially for the Inuit people in northern Canada. The First Nations people around Vancouver did not make Inukshuks. Great place to take photos from

It is a modern creation but the significance transcends the ages. These monuments are cultural means whereby people would communicate with other humans, direct a traveler by means of indicating directions, and sometimes they were ceremonial.

Whistler's Village also has a monument to Inukshuk. This beautiful huge rugged creation is right at home here along the shore of English Bay.

Noted as “one of Vancouver’s most iconic and recognizable art pieces,” the Inukshuk at English Bay is sure to please many. It is a marvelous feat of engineering and design; its location is extremely picturesque; and, it seamlessly blends in with its surroundings, effortlessly combining the contemporary and the ancient in an attractive way and manner. Vancouver’s Inukshuk is also an intriguing discussion piece.

I can recall one of the first times I came upon the English Bay Inukshuk. It was in February 2014 on an unusually bright yet chilly day. I’d walked down to English Bay to clear my head and relax – I guess you could call it a sort of physical (and mental) therapy. After taking in the views, I began wandering toward the Sunset Beach area and that’s when I came upon the Inukshuk. It was captivating and looked quite stunning against the clear blue sky. At the time, my ignorance had me believe this was in place because of the 2010 Winter Olympics; of course, I couldn’t have been more wrong. A plaque on site notes that the Inukshuk was commissioned by the Northwest Territories government for their pavilion at Expo 86. After the Expo concluded, the Inukshuk was gifted to the city of Vancouver and moved to its current location, overlooking English Bay, in 1987. Mind blown! So much for my thinking this was a recent installation, though it’s pretty awesome to know it’s a legacy piece of Expo 86.

My ignorance notwithstanding, it’s not uncommon for most to associate this Inukshuk with Vancouver 2010; after all, a multi-coloured Inukshuk was the official logo for those games. And while it might seem strange that VANOC chose a symbol primarily associated with the far north and Inuit to represent BC (admittedly, I’ve always wondered about this), I guess I can see why they did so. The information plaque on site notes that an Inukshuk “also represents northern hospitality and friendship.” Vancouver did want to welcome the world in 2010.

But then, there are those confused terms. The TripAdvisor listing calls this site “Ilanaaq Inukshuk.” The term “Ilanaaq” appears nowhere on the information plaque, but translates to “friendship.” Given that the Inukshuk, here, is being used to “welcome” people warmly, then using the term “Ilanaaq” makes sense; however, I’d be remiss if I failed to mention that there’s been considerable debate about whether this structure actually is an Inukshuk. According to Peter Irniq, the Inuit never built Inukshuks with a head, arms and legs. Instead, these figures are called “inunguat,” which means “imitation of man.” I actually like that.

Anyway, apparent confusion of terms aside, there’s no denying that this structure is impressive. On my most recent visit to the English Bay area, I couldn’t help but stand and admire it . . . and yes, it did have me reflecting back on 2010 again!

Whether it is my respect and appreciation for the ingenuity and talents of the Indigenous people who designed and built this, or the way it blends and enhances the natural setting in which it has been placed, I may never know; but it should be considered one of the hidden gems of Vancouver.
Tourists may wonder about it's bona fides: inukshuks are directional devices, used in northern Canada for centuries as a sort of road map. This edifice was a gift to Vancouver as part of Expo 86, and became associated with the winter Olympics held here about ten years ago.
And....great sunsets!

I love this Inuhksuk right at a great location on Beach Ave in downtown Vancouver. Walking/Biking/Rollerblading around the seawall is a great option to do with kids or without. Then outside the park you get to beach avenue and see this landmark

This installation is positioned looking out over the harbour. There is information to help understand the significance of the inukshuk. It is quite imposing and makes for some good photo opportunities.

Inukshukとは天然には存在しない、人の手によって作り出された石積みを指すそうです。バンクーバーの西側、イングリッシュベイ湾に面するイングリッシュ湾海水浴場のそばにあります。何か特別なものという感じはするのですが、どのような背景や歴史があるのかなどはさっぱりわかりませんでした。
