A Trip to San Francisco

I'm going to speak about our trip to San Francisco. What a place I’m struggling to think of another city that’s similar, but I think that’s its charm there’s not another city like it. It has a great friendly feel which is quite strange in the city but grows on you quite quickly in a nice way. Then of course there are the sights, The Golden Gate Bridge, (Tip, do a Bay boat tour worth every cent) and Pier 39 with all its wonders. China Town this is not like any other Chinese area I have visited we see a (live) 3 foot shark prepared in the fish mongers which also had a crocodile leg in the front window for sell, which probably worried the croc more than me but worth a mention just in case you are a little squeamish, but it’s a great vibrant area with lots of colour and a must visit.

San Francisco

Something to add on the must do list is to visit the City centre it’s a wonderful place with great buildings new and old, you can even catch the iconic cable cars up and down the famous step streets like you see in the films. Trams are the ones that go along the flat streets just to avoid any confusion.

The public transport system is great no need for a car but we enjoyed walking most places but it’s not for the faint hearted. A great tip is to buy a City Pass (www.citypass.com/san-francisco) it will save you a lot of money on bay boat tours & museums and can be used unlimited on the cable cars (a single, one-way cable car ride costs $6). I can’t praise it enough, we were sad to leave San Francisco but plan to revisit in the future. Thanks to Globelink!
