New York :
The city that Never sleeps is one of the Most Expensive cities in the world.Most of the people Dream of visiting New York at least once in life time,some do visit and some always give a second thought because of the Title (Expensive city) the city have.Here in this blog am going to share my “Travel in Budget” experience for the first time visitors to NYC.
1. Accommodation :
Hotels in Manhattan, NYC are wayyyyy Expensive.It’s always better to take a hotel either on queens side or New jersey side.I personally don’t like to spend too much money on hotels when on vacation & I wanted a hotel which is near to my airport, so i stayed in Best Western Plus LaGuardia Airport Hotel.I booked this hotel through Expedia, They always have very good deals on flights , hotels and other stuff. 3 nights for 2 people it costs around 400$ which is a very good deal specially in a city like New York.
2. Activities :
There is absolute too much things to do here, from tourist attractions, the various restaurants and crazy food ideas that are absolutely amazing, the nightlife if you know where to go, the list is endless. There’s something for everyone.Some attractions need $$ to see/visit while some are absolutely Free.Here is the List of Free Things to see/do in New York.
There are also some must visit attractions in NYC which are $$.So, I bought a 7-attraction Explorer Pass through Expedia Which was 300$ (150$ each) for 2 people.With this pass you will get to see/do
- Top of the Rock (Rockefeller center )
- Empire state building Observatory deck
- Statue of Liberty & Ellis island
- One world trade center
- Hop on/ Hop off 42 hour bus tour
- Madame Tussaud’s
- American Museum of Natural History
3.Food and Dinning:
If you are travelling in budget then dinning in restaurant is a very bad option.In NYC there are lots of street food options available which are good and cheap(<10$).Quickly grab something and Explore while eating so that you don’t waste time in eating.
If you plan to ride the buses or subway then you should buy a Metro Cared.Metro is the best option to travel anywhere in NYC. If you want to travel in Uber,cab or car then you are wasting a lottttt of time in travelling because NYC is full of Traffic.
Unlimited rides – 116$ per month.
My stay in New York was for 3 days so i took 7 day Metro pass.
Sample cost for 3 nights/2 people :
Hotel : 400$
Food : <200$
Metro card : 62$
Explorer Pass : 300$
Total cost : 1002 $
I traveled from Los Angeles to NYC through flight & booked my tickets through Expedia and it took 800$ round trip for 2 people which was a very good price.
