I was not totally satisfied with my quick tour in the city of Big Apple. People and tourists often refer the City of New York as Big Apple. Accordingly, it was started being called as Big Apple in the 1920’s where it was popularized by the tourism authority of New York. When I went to this City, I immediately compared this to other Cities I have visited in the United States. Comparing this city to other cities, makes New York City a best place to live for immigrants of the United States. Why? This city is the only city that has a public transport which will deliver you to your place where you live. Literally door to door because of the strong presence of Taxi, Bus, railways, and subways.
I visited different tourist spots around the city. I visited the 911 memorial and Museum, Central Park, Empire State Building, Time Square, Grand Central Terminal, Wall Street, Radio City Music Hall, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
During my visit, I was not able to enter the St. Patrick’s Cathedral because there was a major renovation and people are allowed only during Mass.
I was also disappointed for not going to the statue of Liberty because of the lack of time to go.
I travelled in the year 2014 in the state of Arizona for a seminar. I was not expecting to visit this place. However, I am so grateful to visit this amazing place. I thought of a place that exist only in my dreams.
The place within is the Grand Canyon National Park, where you see the different views of the Grand Canyon itself. I was so amazed that the place is not only composed of the single Park but it has several tourist spots, namely; Kaibab National Forest, Grand Canyon – Parashant National Monument, Hualapai Indian Reservation, Havasupai Indian Reservation, and the Navajo Nation.
I couldn’t describe what I have seen. It is really different when you are actually in the place rather than viewing it in a video or image in the internet.
Travelling to this place is really fun. You will appreciate the beauty of nature. Nature that you could not find it to some other places on earth.
Unfortunately, Filipino visitors could not directly travel to this place. There is no flight from Manila to Phoenix, Arizona. You need to travel by plane from Manila to Los Angeles, California and ride a bus from there. It is better to ride a bus from Los Angeles because you will also appreciate the places you can see while on the bus. It is also something worthwhile to travel though it is quite exhaustive but the view while you are on travel is very satisfying and very pleasing to your eyes.
