TRAVEL IN SAN FRANCISCO

Sun, sights and so many good vibes: San Francisco’s got everything a traveller could ask for. One of the iconic West Coast cities, take some time to soak up all the history, culture and food of this fabulous place.


One of the first things you’ll want to do in this city is see the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge. Head down to the bay and cross this awesome suspension bridge the way travellers do: by foot or by bike. Then, make your way over to nearby Golden Gate Park, a massive complex that boasts gardens, greenery and some pretty amazing museums. Art lovers, be sure to check out the de Young Museum and the Museum of Asian Art while you’re here.


Walk across to the east side of the park, where you’re a stone’s throw away from Haight Ashbury. This district is most famous for being the centre of the hippy movement of the 60s and 70s, especially for its role in the 1967 Summer of Love. Cruise down these streets to discover vintage stores and funky eateries. If you’re around in June, the Haight Ashbury Street Festival is one you won’t want to miss.


Talking about history, every spot in San Fran is full of it. Starting in Union Square, hitch a ride on one of the city’s cable cars, the oldest manually-operated cable car system in the world. Go right down to Fisherman’s Wharf, where you can check out the Exploratorium, spot some sea lions and pick up a crab roll. If you want to explore a little feature off-shore, jump on a ferry and head to Alcatraz, where you can tour the famous Alcatraz federal prison.


When it comes to food, there’s so much variety in San Francisco that you’ll never be bored. Pick up the original mission burrito at Taqueria La Cumbre and rush down to Yasukochi's Sweet Stop for an early-morning sweet stop before their famous coffee crunch cake sells out. Eat, drink and explore your way through sunny San Francisco.
