One of the most astonishing places to visit in the world is New York City. They say, if you can make it there, you'll make it anywhere! It's must must must to have the Big Apple at the top of your travel bucket list!
I went to New York over five months ago and still haven't gotten around to write about it. We squeezed a lot of places into the little amount of time ( one and a half days) that we had!
NYC was everything I had anticipated and more.

There is so much to do in the Big Apple, I could give you a never-ending list. Not that you need any reason to visit the most celebrated city in the world, but here are some of my favorite things about New York City.
It's the soul of New York City. Manhattan is home to some of the main attractions in NYC like Central Park, Times Square, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty etc.
The New York Skyline is perfect. I mean, the best in the world. You really feel on top of the world. The experience is just out of this world. * at a loss for words*
Streets of New York
NYC is one of the most walk-able city in the world. Walking is the best way to explore the city. You'll never get tired of walking. Never. Promise. Whether you traipse around iconic Fifth Avenue or take a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge or wander aimlessly on the streets; it's pure bliss.

You must have seen it in the movies but seeing this place in real is a delight. It's noisy, crowded but full of life and vitality. People love posing for pictures at Times Square. Best place for selfie-enthusiasts.
Statue of Liberty
And Yes, how can I forget the Lady Liberty!
Walk On The Brooklyn Bridge
Walk across Brooklyn Bridge is the kind of luxury you don't often get. Stunning views awe you especially at night when downtown Manhattan is all lit up. I'm still in awe!
