Friends, Sex in the City, Gossip Girl, Breakfast at Tiffany's, King Kong and the Godfather have all immortalised the city of New York, firmly cementing the metropolis as one of the world's most iconic cities.
You've seen the awe-inspiring skyline and green fields of Central Park a thousand times before on the big screen, but let's face it, nothing compares to real life. So why not bite the bullet and make the journey?
Get up close and personal with all the favourite sights such as Times Square, the Empire State Building, Broadway, and streets packed with designer stores. Even if you're on a tight budget, a spot of window-shopping can never go astray, and you'll never know if you'll catch a famous fashionista's eye while browsing the racks of haute-couture.
After you've tried on outfits fit for a prince or princess, make sure you try some quintessential Big Apple sidewalk-stall food, such as hot dogs, bagels, donuts and, of course, pizza. Hit up Little Italy for red wine and other Italian fare galore. After dark, you're probably going to want to sample a New York tipple or two - word on the street is that this city does manhattans and martinis like nowhere else.
Picnic in Central Park and check out a whole array of street performers, and for that extra special experience, take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the park or paddle boat across the waterways.
Get your fill of history and culture with enlightening destinations such as the American Museum of Natural History, complete with fascinating dinosaur bones and exhibits, and of course, the sobering Ground Zero memorial.
Best of all, you can fit all of this into your New York holiday without having to bust open that piggy bank. Just give us a bell and we can help you plan a fantastic, great-value trip to this unforgettable and enduring city.
