A First Timer’s Guide to NYC

Travel, Travel Guides

It was hard to admit that it took me this long to get to New York City in the first place. I got enough “what?! You’ve NEVER been to NYC?!” outcries in casual conversations that I decided it was high time to fly coast to coast and finally explore the iconic city.

But the biggest question was: what to do? In a city so historic, so cosmopolitan, so full of diversity, how could I distill its essence in only four days?

The truth is, you can’t. NYC is simply too much for just one visit, and I will definitely be back for more. Like so, so many others before me, New York will leave you hopelessly in love, starry eyed, and craving more.

With flavor influences from across Java and Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore, the food of Bali is both unique and typically Southeast Asian, and you’ll find a variety of scrumptious dishes and dining options, from local warungs, beach clubs, and street vendors to mid-range hot spots and high-end restaurants.
