Welcome to San Francisco
San Francisco has been soaking up cultural, creative and culinary influences from around the Pacific for decades. And it’s still one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the USA. Home to some of the world’s best art galleries and most innovative tech start-ups, it’s no wonder San Francisco offers endless opportunities for fun and relaxation.
The city itself is a joy to behold. You’ve seen pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge, but no picture compares to seeing it with your own eyes. Take an open-top bus ride across the bridge to marvel at its size and beauty. Then hop across the bay to Alcatraz (affectionately known as ‘The Rock’) to see exactly why its inmates were so desperate to escape and why visitors just can’t get enough of this rocking jailhouse.
No visit to San Francisco would be complete without a trip to China. Well, Chinatown to be exact. But this is the world’s oldest Chinatown and really does feel like stepping across the ocean. Then continue your tour by exploring the North Beach and Fisherman’s Wharf. You might even spot a sea lion or two.
If it’s shopping you’re after, then head on over to Union Square (via the world-famous cable car, of course). And when it comes to resting those shopped-out feet, enjoy dinner in one of the city’s many world-class restaurants. Local chefs excel at combining the freshest local ingredients with countless international influences. A taste adventure awaits…
And make sure you spend a leisurely day (or two) exploring San Francisco’s many art galleries, as well as its planetarium, aquarium and natural history museum. Fun for art lovers and curious explorers of all ages.
