What to do in New York

Explore on foot

It also includes walking tours, hands down the best way to get to know New York’s neighbourhoods.

Where to stay in New York

Decisions, decisions…

Choose an iconic address like The New Yorker – A Wyndham Hotel. It’s instantly recognisable by its giant red lettering. Otherwise, consider something with a distinctive styling, such as the Moxy NYC Times Square or The Roxy. Shopaholics should look no further than Lotte New York Palace on Madison Avenue, mere steps from Saks Fifth Avenue.
