The beating heart of “The Big Apple”, Manhattan needs no introduction. From towering skyscrapers to bustling sidewalks, New York's concrete jungle is an unforgettable adventure that will entice even the most avid traveller.
Things to do
Ever dreamt of having breakfast at Tiffany’s? Now you can! 50 years after Audrey Hepburn popularised the famous Manhattan jewellery store and the Blue Box Cafe is open breakfast or lunch at Fifth Avenue store.
Spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline await from atop Empire State Building, but for a truly memorable experience stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge at night when “The City That Never Sleeps” lights up. And of course, no one should leave without witnessing the flickering bright lights in Times Square, the city’s perpetually busy and famous film location.
For a culture hit, spend a day meandering through Manhattan’s world-class museums. There's something for everyone from the massive Metropolitan Museum of Art to the inspiring Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Next, snag a ticket for an award-winning Broadway show at the world’s most famous theatre district.
Seek refuge from the concrete jungle with a stroll through Central Park. Strap on a pair of skates and glide across the Wollman Rink or ride a horse-drawn carriage to Belvedere Castle. For a bird of view of the city, wander along the High Line, the city’s new overground urban walking trail.
A trip to Manhattan would not be complete without witnessing, perhaps the world’s most iconic symbol of freedom, The Statue of Liberty. While the 46-metre statue can be seen from Battery Park, a boat ride to Ellis Island affords the best views and provides the opportunity to visit the Immigration Museum.
Fly into John F. Kennedy International Airport or the domestic LaGuardia Airport. Manhattan's numbered grid system makes exploring on foot simple, while the extensive public transport network provides a convenient and cost-effective means of travel.
