The Great White North beckons as Samantha begins her tour of this jewel-like Canadian city with Charlayne Thornton-Joe, Coordinator of the Chinese Canadian Museum found in Fan Tan Alley, the narrowest commercial street in North America. Charlayne tells of her ancestors' immigrant experience in Canada and shares authentic Chinese barbecued pork with Samantha at Loy Sing Meat Market, the oldest Chinese-owned business on the continent. Next, Samantha meets Richard Bell of The Pedaler Bike Tours and takes in the sites of Victoria including the Parliament Building and Beacon Hill Park. She ends her bicycle adventure with a delicious fish and chips lunch at Finest at Sea. Samantha marvels at the charm of Fisherman's Wharf, then joins Captain Brett Soberg of Eagle Wing Whale-Watching and Wildlife Tours for a breathtaking afternoon on the water complete with Humpback Whale sightings. Samantha learns about the emphasis they place on sustainability and conservation to improve the environment for the area's magnificent wildlife and for future generations to enjoy this special part of the world. Next, Samantha enjoys a unique cocktail experience at one of the most iconic hotels in the world--the Fairmont Empress. With a gorgeous sunset view of Victoria Harbor, Samantha enjoys tea-infused cocktails inspired by the high tea service for which the hotel is famous. The beauty of British Columbia comes to a crescendo at Butchart Gardens where Samantha tours the heavenly landscape with Director of Horticulture, Carlos Moniz, and learns how and why a former rock quarry transformed into one of the most beautiful gardens on earth. Finally, Samantha discovers the eclectic and uniquely Canadian puzzles that double as art in a quirky shop called the Puzzle Lab.

About Samantha Brown's Places to Love:

For more than 17 years, TV host Samantha Brown has been exploring all four corners of the world, visiting more than 260 cities in 62 countries, sharing her adventures and introducing new cultures to viewers.

Now, the two-time Emmy Award-winner embarks on her next journey with her new travel series SAMANTHA BROWN'S PLACES TO LOVE.

Unlike a traditional travelogue show with a formulaic itinerary, PLACES TO LOVE delivers decidedly refreshing and enriching travel experiences by taking viewers on a discovery of the emotional heart of travel and highlighting the people who are changing, challenging and strengthening a destination.

From Brooklyn, New York and Monterey, California to Shanghai, China and Donegal in Ireland, Samantha seeks out the little-known spots and haunts where innovators and disrupters are creating a brand new travel experience.

Whether it's through food and drink, art and design, culture or adventure, at the end of each episode, viewers will have a well-curated list of new experiences that focus on not just how to visit a destination, but how to fully immerse in it.

The 13-part series encourages viewers to experience the passion of people and the soul of a place in a way that only traveling can do.

Samantha's career as a television travel host happened by accident.

A producer spotted her work in a commercial and recommended her to the Travel Channel in 1999 to audition for a new show called Great Vacation Homes.

A decade of various series followed, including Great Hotels, Passport to Europe, Passport to Latin America, Samantha Brown's Asia, The Trip, 50/50, and many others.

Samantha's fun-loving style has made her a beloved and engaging television personality whose approach is less expert and more a person you would want to travel with.
