Recommended itinerary

New York

The Big Apple

When you arrive in NYC, the skyline is a sight to behold. The sky is pierced with towering skyscrapers, once dominated by the Empire State Building and Art Deco Chrysler Building, which are now overlooked by the likes of One World Trade, Central Park Tower and One Vanderbilt. Take a deep breath, soak it all in, and get ready to explore the city that never sleeps!

What to do in New York

The options are endless

Get your bearings by seeing Manhattan from above – there’s a choice of excellent observation decks. If you’re in NYC for the first time, you might want to check off famous places like the Statue of Liberty, Times Square and Central Park. Shopping trip? Fifth Avenue awaits. And if you’re happiest getting to know a city by its cuisine and locals, try a neighbourhood food tour.

Where to stay in New York

Uptown, Midtown, Downtown?

Getting a good idea of what you want to do when you’re in the city can help you decide the best location to stay. Midtown is a great option if you’re hitting the shops on Fifth and shows on Broadway. Lower Manhattan is well-located for the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and ferries to Liberty Island. But you might be tempted by the neighbourhoods in Brooklyn, across the East River.

Los Angeles

The adventure continues

Fly westwards across the USA to Los Angeles, relaxing on the six-hour flight to re-energise for your explorations on the Pacific Coast. Plunge into this glitter-dusted, star-studded metropolis – the utterly inimitable Los Angeles. Get swept up in Hollywood's promises, then head to the hills or down to the beaches.

What to do in Los Angeles

Rev up or relax

Boardwalk strolling, bottomless brunching, poolside posing – who said LA had to be fast-paced to be fantastic? Then again, you could up the ante and book yourself a Go City All-Inclusive Pass that gives you incredible access to Universal Studios, LEGOLAND, Knott's Berry Farm, celebrity homes tour and more.

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Save or splurge

In LA, it’s all about location, location, location. If you can give up a few bells and whistles, you can find yourself in a prime spot without busting your budget. Then again, you could splurge on a truly iconic LA haunt like The Beverly Wilshire or The Beverly Hilton.
