Things to do in New York City

  • Our tips for New York City

    Our tips for New York City
    • Get tipping. America’s wages for bar and wait-staff are notoriously low so tipping for these services is a must. Around 15% in tips is standard, while anything over 20% guarantees an attentive waiter all night long.
    • Tread carefully. New Yorkers may not always obey pedestrian traffic signals, but visitors should tread more carefully. Traffic in this city is choc-a-bloc so keep alert when navigating city streets.
    • Think before you drink. The legal drinking age in the United States is 21 and over.
    • Get off the Island. There’s plenty to see and do in New York outside of Manhattan. Brooklyn offers chic, budget-friendly hotel stays while Queen’s eclectic culture brought it to the top of Lonely Planet’s 2015 US destination guide.

    Getting There Navigating New York’s sprawling boroughs can be testing. Here’s our travel breakdown of the best ways to get from A to B in the big apple.
    • The NYC subway is your best bet for getting around the city quickly, and it’s not as hard to crack as you may think. Plan some key routes before your arrival to the city to ensure hassle-free travel.
    • Like biting into your first pizza slice, hailing a cab in New York is a rite of passage for first-timers to the city. Be sure to share your fare with fellow travellers for a cost-effective trip, New York taxi rates can be expensive and you will get stuck in traffic.
    • Walking is the best way experience every detail of New York, and the grid-patterned numbered streets make it easy to get your bearings on foot.
    Stay Safe New York is a relatively safe city, but it’s important to stay street-savvy during your time here. Keep these precautions in mind to ensure your trip goes off without a hitch…
    • Don’t get on an empty subway car. Whether it’s spilled fluids or broken air-conditioning, it’s empty for a reason, and you could be risking your safety by boarding.
    • For assistance in any emergency situation, dial 911.
    • In the evenings walk in well-lit areas and stay alert and wary around strangers, especially if you’re travelling solo.
