Travel | Manhattan, New York

So after spending 12 nights in Orlando, we flew out to... New York! We were all really excited because me and my family had never been before and we wanted to experience the place we always saw on TV and movies.

As it was going to be our first time in New York, my dad chose the Marriott Marquis hotel to be our home there for 4 nights because it was right in the middle of Times Square.

Here are some pictures to summarise our time in New York:

Stayed at the Marriott Marquis hotel in Times Square.

The hotel had 48 floors, we went up to the top and looked down and it was sooo scary. Was dying from fear when I saw my dad stick his phone out of the balcony to take a picture from the top.

Attractions we visited:
  • Times Square
  • Ground Zero 9/11
  • Empire State Building
  • Battery park, Statue of Liberty
  • Central Park
  • Wall Street
  • Grand Central Train Station (Had a Gossip Girl moment there).
Each day in New York was jam-packed with sight-seeing activities, so there wasn’t a day where we didn’t do anything. I really do love New York, everything about the city was bustling and lively. However, the only negative thing that I can think of is that some people in New York were really rude and talked with a lot of attitude, which was something that we totally didn’t expect as people in Florida was always friendly and happy to help. So the transition from Orlando to New York did take a bit of time in getting used to but OVERALL, I loved every second of this holiday. I felt like I needed this because I haven’t had any time to chill or relax due to jumping straight into work from finishing university. So this was a much needed break because I truly had the time of my life. x
