Cool, cosmopolitan, bustling, constantly evolving… the Big Apple combines big city splendour with small town charm. Amidst New York’s iconic landmarks and towering skyscrapers, you’ll experience a vibrant culture that permeates each of the city’s distinctive neighbourhoods and boroughs. Follow the trendsetters to the East Village and Brooklyn for indie boutiques, iconic bakeries and trendy cafes. Then browse the shelves of Fifth Avenue’s chic shops, admire the cutting-edge art collections at MoMA and the Met, catch an unforgettable show on Broadway, or dine at the latest trendy restaurant.
As the most populous city in the U.S. – and at the forefront of food, fashion and the arts – NYC requires stamina. But don’t let the frenetic sights and sounds of the Big Apple put you off taking in its splendour. Enlist the help of a local to navigate you through it all. Stroll through the concrete jungle and you’ll see roaring taxis zooming down busy blocks, fast-moving pedestrians strolling past on their way to tented galleries and trendy cocktail bars, and the neon lights of Times Square flickering at all hours. But the city’s glittering lights and chaotic corners also invite you to make the most of every New York minute, explore every enclave and create your own urban adventure. There are endless ways to spend your time in the city that never sleeps, but before you leave, stop and look around – what’s here today will be transformed into something bigger and better tomorrow.
