No two cities are the same and that’s why we love them. Every city boasts their own unique experiences, from towering skyscrapers, historic land marks and amazing shopping to cultural attractions,  traditional parades and exciting carnivals. – VOTE TEAM CITY!

1, Sightseeing

Get those cameras ready!

Every city boats its own sights from famous and historical landmarks to religious buildings and temples to Skyscrapers, parks and bustling streets and markets.

Some of our favourite sights include: The Statute of Liberty, New York; The Burj Khalifa, Dubai; Sydney Opera House, Sydney; Wat Phra Kaew Temple in Bangkok; Old L.A Zoo, Los Angeles

Don’t miss: Wat Phra Kaew, a temple in Bangkok is home to a large figurine of Buddha, carved from a single piece of jade

Shopping has to be one of the main reasons we love holidays in the city. Every city offers a unique shopping experience from the huge shopping malls of Orlando and Las Vegas, the famous New York department stores like Bloomingdales and Macy’s and to the interesting and unique floating markets of Bangkok and souks in Dubai.

The nightlife in any city will have something to suite everyone, from thrilling night clubs and sophisticated cocktail bars to theatres, cinemas, sporting events, and gigs. Las Vegas has some of the best night clubs in the world; New York has Broadway and hundreds of shows. Dubai has late night shopping and skiing!
