The East Coast of the USA Has Fantastic Cultural Experiences forTravelers

A lot of people enjoy traveling because it gives them an opportunity to be at one with nature and find some inner peace and tranquility. It is certainly true that there isn’t a natural wonder on our planet that won’t take your breath away. However, some people say that as wonderful as nature may be, true wisdom is found when experiencing cultures and creations made by man.

If you book on one of the Tauck Tours to USA, you will have an opportunity to experience all of this, particularly if you go to the East Coast. Some of the biggest cultural centers can be found here, mainly in the big cities. Places like Philadelphia, Washington DC and New York City are just some of the possibilities that are open to you. Visiting these places gives you a chance to see true wonders of the modern age, as well as being able to experience the fascinating cultural tapestry that is American history.

If this is your first time in the USA, make sure you learn as much as possible about the places you will visit before you go. Firstly, make sure there is a valid visa for entry, you can find more details at ESTA Application.When you book on an East Coast tour, you should be given a full itinerary of places you will visit and routes you will travel, which will give you an opportunity to prepare yourself for the things that you will get to see. One of the reasons why it is important you do this is because you will probably go to the three big cities mentioned previously, and these cities are so big that, without any knowledge on what to do, you may just find yourself slightly lost.

New York City
New York City is often referred to as the ‘Big Apple’. Most people know at least some of the things that you can go and visit here. These spots include:
·        The Empire State Building
·        Fifth Avenue
·        NBC Studios
·        The Rockefeller Center
·        Wall Street
·        The Statue of Liberty
These places are all marvels of the modern world, representing the height of modern civilization. They are our equivalent of Machu Pichu and the Pyramids, in other words.

Washington DC
Washington DC is where the US government sits. This doesn’t mean you have to become involved in politics, but some of the political places are not to be missed. Make sure you visit Capitol Hill and the White House, for instance. Just looking at those places and imagining the decisions that are being made behind those walls can be overwhelming. Furthermore, the city is filled with amazing memorials to past presidents and to many wars. Plus, it is said to be designed according to Masonic laws, which adds a little mystery to it.

Philadelphia

Philadelphia, or Philly, is considered to be the Mecca of freedom and liberty for Americans. This is why you simply must visit the Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell and marvel at the places where the American Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were born.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
