San Francisco

Even if you don’t have flowers in your hair, the relaxed vibe of San Francisco is guaranteed to appeal. The ‘City by the Bay’ has a stunning natural setting and a vibrant cultural heart. Plan a visit to the formidable island of Alcatraz. Let the voices of convicts who called ‘The Rock’ home paint a picture of this maximum security prison’s grim past. Stroll Fisherman's Wharf to spot sea lions basking in the sun and feast on famed clam chowder. Hop a cable car, a national historic landmark in itself, to navigate the city’s steep rollercoaster hills. Snap a photo of the city’s famous ‘Painted Ladies’. Cycle the iconic Golden Gate Bridge to seaside Sausalito. Slurp juicy dumplings in the largest Chinatown outside of Asia. Whether it’s a stopover destination or a holiday in its own right, San Francisco is fabulous.
