Default Attractions in Montreal and Quebec City area

We're planning to go there end of November Inshallah. Even after staying here for over 6 years, I don't know much about Montreal or Quebec City.

We're coming from Toronto, and want to visit different places, different cities, for a total of about 5 to 7 days. We can change hotels and check-in in different cities' hotels, but we need to plan everything out depending on where we need to go.

So any suggestions for places to see in Montreal and Quebec City and other surrounding areas? I don't want museum and those crap. I want places...like Mont Tremblant and those types. Or may be decent restaurants, or clubs where a young couple can go.

Your suggestions please

PS: Is HotWire the best for finding cheap hotel rates?

Inshallah, see you there Nafis

I think if it's from school, you should always visit these places. I wasn't among the lucky ones to have a trip of that sort from my school. Phokruddin amaderke Kolkata niye jabe bolsio, but his promises are always BIG LIES.

I will try but the thing is my older friends are like it is not worth it as the activities and stuff there are really stupid and the services are bad too so I am thinking if it is worth it to spend around 400, 500 dollars to go there with bad service and all.

Anyways here is a website I found that might help you but I never tried this website so not sure if it would help you 100% or even 90 % of what you are looking for.Good Luck!

Maharaja restaurant for the lunch buffet. The waiters and owner is Bangladeshi. November is when I went. Montreal is a really charming city... at least to me it was. make sure you're ready for the cold pin-pin'a rain.

Or climb up on to the backside stands of the McGill stadium great view from the top!

Go along Cote d'Neige good way to see the different parts of the city. Also head towards the Formula 1 circuit. Not much to do there, but the park is pretty cool.

Make sure you are in Montreal over the weekend and spend the weekend (Friday night and Saturday night) with me, my place, cancel your hotel reservation.

Make list of what you want to see in Montreal, With you, I will get to see Montreal from the tourist's eye for the first time.

Finally we will meet, Inshallah!

Many many thanks for the invitation Mahmood bhai. My wife got excited seeing your invitation

Inshallah a friend and his wife will be travelling with me (as planned today), so it won't be appropriate to stay over at your place, or even to bring him over to your place. But Inshallah, if I'm in Montreal, we'll meet and have dinner together one day (possibly Saturday, I'll let you know the date). Can't miss bhabi's biryani this time

I'll PM you soon after finalizing the plan.



And thanks for the suggestions everyone, they're awsum. Keep posting some more.
