Well, New York is shopping heaven and i made sure i did as much of it as possible. I reacon head to SoHo (an acronym for SOuth of HOuston) and NoLita and prowl the hidden boutiquesÂ they a packed with trendy fashion finds - just make sure there is room in your bag cause i nearly had to pay excess on my way home!
Canal Street (which is near by) is also great - they have loads of fashionÂ bags and walletsÂ - it is also a great area to hit the galleries and cafes as it is famous for its artistic flair - i reaconÂ sit back and watch the locals...it's loads of fun - and there is plenty to watch!
After a hard day shopping and sipping tall mocha double lattes (non-fat, hold the cream)Â - HA - II wentÂ to aÂ Broadway show. My new found tour friends and I decided dinner and a showÂ was the perfect way to tackle the evening.
It's hard to miss the Broadway district with its flashing lights and chic crowds. We saw a modern-day musical The Drowsy Chaperone at the Marquis Theatre - it is the story ofÂ a pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up show business to get married - it is great but there areÂ loads of shows to see it really is hard to choose.Â When we sprawled from the theatreÂ we all took off to one of the local bars, just like true New Yorkers - so much fun!
After four days and three nights, I am please to say my Contiki tour mates and I saw, smell, ate, shopped and experienced more than we could have imagined but i stillÂ left the Big AppleÂ hungry for more. Perhaps ill get back there soon!
