Sensational attractions, outstanding entertainment, world class shopping and tempting cuisine

A global capital in every sense, New York is the city that never sleeps; a bustling hub of activity where culture and diversity fill the air. At the top of many people's must-see city list, New York may be big and brash, but it's also incredibly captivating. Sightseeing, shopping, skylines, shows – the Big Apple has it all.

  • Fifth Avenue is a shopper’s mecca with many designer boutiques such as Prada, Versace and Tiffany & Co. alongside department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Barney’s and Bergdorf Goodman
  • Although you can visit the city for a long weekend we recommend spending a week or so here if you have the time. There’s so much to see and do it’s likely you will want to return time and again
  • New York is famed for its outstanding array of restaurants, delis and cafes offering cuisine from all over the world. Whatever your flavour, you’ll find it here
  • If you’re an art lover the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim are outstanding

Kuoni Insider

For a relaxed take on New York stay at the Jumeirah Essex House on Central Park, a long-established hotel with an excellent location.

New York’s sky scrapers are best viewed from up high, the Empire State Building and Top of the Rock both have spectacular views – try one in the day and one at night for a contrasting spectacle. Also, if you plan your route in advance the Subway is a doddle and the best way to get around the Big Apple.
