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. Visitors should be aware of the traffic rules. 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 are plenty of things to do in the city outside of Manhattan. Consider embarking on some New York sightseeing tours to the city's outer boroughs. Brooklyn offers chic, budget-friendly hotel stays while Queen's eclectic culture brings it to the top of Lonely Planet's 2015 USA Destination Guide.
  • Stay safe. 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 traveling solo.
