There are many things to see in New York City but one can’t miss to see the panoramic view of New York City from Rockefeller Center’s Top of the Rock Observation Deck. Do not hesitate to include this on your to-do list in NYC! Nothing beats the view of the concrete jungle from the 67th to 70th floor of GE building – one of the tallest buildings in NYC and is also the home of NBC TV.
I had a one-night stay in Los Angeles with no friends around so I booked a hotel room right away to secure my stay. But of course, a trip wouldn’t be complete without any surprise! Just a week before my US-trip I received notification from the hotel that my reservation was cancelled (oh-no!). I was so lazy to re-book a room (seriously, this is the part I hate most when planning a trip) until I’ve completely forgotten it and only remembered the day before I flew to Los Angeles. I immediately grabbed my phone and checked the hotels around LA but since it’s a last-minute booking, prices were insanely high! Good thing there’s Airbnb! It’s my first time to use it and had no idea how it works but I just tried and found this very artsy room in Downtown LA. The price was almost similar to a 2-star hotel but what made me decide to book this room was to try something different.
The Statue of Liberty is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in the middle of New York Harbor, in Manhattan, New York. The Statue was a gift from the people of France to the United States and was designed by Frederic Aguste Bartholdi. The famous statue represents Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, who bears a torch and tabula ansata which is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776 and then became the famous landmark of New York City.
Ticking this off from my bucket lists! This was the craziest thing I ever did. Joined the million people who lined up at the streets of New York, stood under 5 degrees outside and waited for 12 hours just to witness the New York Times Square Drop Ball but it was all worth it! We even packed our food just to be sure we don’t get hungry! Haha. It wasn’t the best new year’s eve firework display I’ve seen but rather the most memorable one. It is something that you only do once in your life.
