TRAVEL IN NEW YORK

New York, New York! The global epicentre of fashion, art and diversity, this eclectic city is dizzying, dazzling and iconic. This is the city that never sleeps, with its fast-paced lifestyle being one of its most beloved characteristics. The best part? A New York trip can be anything you want it to be. It can be a foodies paradise, giving you everything from haute-cuisine, to creamy cheesecake, to mouth-watering pastrami bagels. It can be the destination to truly unlock your creativity, with districts overrun with avant-garde art galleries and museums, like the Guggenheim Museum and Metropolitan Museum of Art. One thing’s for sure: this all-encompassing concrete jungle has no shortage of thrills that will have you squealing for days.


What makes a trip to New York the ultimate city dwellers delight? For starters, each neighbourhood offers a totally unique atmosphere and array of activities, almost making them cities in their own right. Channel your inner Gossip Girl on the Upper East Side, explore the hipster eateries of the Chelsea Market, shop til you drop in Manhattan or just take a leisurely stroll over the famed Brooklyn Bridge. Of course, it wouldn’t be a trip to New York without a little culture. The sex museum will arouse your curiosity while the Bloody Mary Festival will make all your brunch dreams come true.You’ve seen it on TV, read about it in books and no doubt fantasised about your own Big Apple adventure, but nothing really compares to the real deal. You may have dreamt of gazing up in awe at the statue of Liberty, but did you picture yourself walking the cobblestoned streets of Greenwich Village, or rowing across the lake in Central Park?


From the break of dawn when you arise the New York way with a coffee and a bagel, til the sunset where you let loose after a few of the city’s craft beers onto Soho’s funky club scene, your NYC tour will likely be filled with pure urban wonderment. Weird, wacky, niche or trendy, New York doesn’t just have it all - it owns it all. This is the city of opportunity, and its cosmopolitan charm is yours for the taking.
