Los AngelesUnited States of America

Known the world over as the City of Angels, this vibrant, glamorous city is home to some of the world’s most famous stars.

Millions of visitors come to LA each year to see if they can spot those who have made it big in Hollywood and maybe aspire to join their heroes in stardom and fame.

The city of LA is synonymous with the film industry, an integral part of the city’s history and a key attraction in modern day LA. Visitors will find themselves caught up in the excitement and buzz of the city when they first spot the famous Hollywood sign.

Start your Hollywood adventure on the main boulevard, home to the world-renowned Walk of Fame and share your experience with over 2,300 of the entertainment industry’s stars, both past and present. Film buffs should check out Grauman’s Chinese Theatre which has played host to numerous movie premiers.

If you have not yet had your fill of stardom, take a tour of the Dolby Theatre which hosts the Academy Awards every year. Situated at the heart of Hollywood, the Highland Centre is a great place to peruse the many shops and grab a bite to eat. With the numerous restaurants, bars and even nightclubs there is something here to entertain visitors around the clock. The newly opened Madame Tussauds and the Hollywood History Museum can be found just around the corner. If you’re looking for a bit more action and adrenaline, head towards Universal Studios for a fascinating tour of the studios that have made movie legends for the last century.

Los Angeles offers one of the best shopping experiences in the world; this comes as no surprise given the star studded nature of the city. From high end designers to quirky independent stores, the city is bursting with diverse and unique shopping experiences. LA is the United States West Coast’s must see for fashion junkies and film buffs alike. Boasting areas such as Rodeo Drive in Beverley Hills to The LA Fashion District in Downtown, this city sets the trend for the entire region.

Due to its ideal location in the southern California, LA is a great place to visit for families and sun seekers. The numerous golden beaches are just as iconic as the Hollywood sign itself and are adored by both locals and visitors. The eccentric vibe of Venice Beach will satisfy even the most hard core of sun seekers.
