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 of things to do in New York outside of Manhattan. Consider embarking on some New York day trips to the city’s outer boroughs. Brooklyn offers chic, budget-friendly hotel stays while Queen’s eclectic culture brought it to the top of Lonely Planet’s 2015 USA Destination Guide.
