The Big Apple has a buzz unlike any other city in the world. In the city that never sleeps you'll experience an abundance of unique and exciting activities.
New York City's five boroughs are home to some of the world's most iconic and cherished landmarks and attractions. From the Empire State Building and Times Square to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the island of Manhattan packs more famous attractions into one compact area than any other place on earth. And not forgetting the City's four other boroughs—The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island—each of which contains its own unique, must-see destinations.
From sushi in Soho to tomales in TriBeCa each neighborhood has its own distinctive personality. From Michelin starred restaurants to eclectic, buzzy neighbourhood diners, all tastes are accommodated. In the middle of it all is Times Square, which never fails to provide excitement. Take in a Broadway show or a baseball game at Yankee Stadium, shop for cutting edge designs in SoHo and view some of the world’s greatest art collections at one of the many famous art galleries.
There’s so much to keep you busy. Whether you go for a few days for a city break or pack in more on a longer holiday, New York never fails to impress.

Top tips for visiting New York
• Fifth Avenue divides Manhattan into the east and west sides. Building numbers increase as you go farther east or west.
• If the number on a taxicab’s top light is lit, it indicates that the cab is available. (On the other hand, a non-lit number or a lit "off-duty" means you're out of luck.) Taxis are available all day and night. Tolls are extra and added to the metered fare. All taxis accept cash and most accept credit cards.
• An MTA MetroCard can be used for both subways and buses, and transfers between the two modes of transport—which run 24 hours a day—are free.
• In Manhattan, if you walk 20 blocks north or south, you've walked one mile. Locals call the north-south blocks “short blocks” or "street blocks" and the east-west blocks “long blocks” or “avenue blocks.”
• When getting directions, always ask for the cross streets (for example, 810 Seventh Ave., the location of the Official NYC Information Center, is between West 52nd and West 53rd Streets). That way, it will be easier to find your destination and for locals to guide you should you need additional assistance.
• It is customary to tip 15% to 20% of the total bill to waiting staff, bartenders and taxi drivers. Restaurants sometimes automatically add the gratuity, especially for parties of six or more. Check your bill carefully before adding a tip to make sure one isn't already part of the total.
