Whether you’re just taking a nibble or a great whopping bite of the 'Big Apple', the city’s intoxicating buzz will purge your jet lag before you can say, “Which way to Broadway?”

Start by getting some perspective and take in the New York vistas from the iconic Empire State Building, Rockefeller Centre’s Top of the Rock or across the East River via the Brooklyn Bridge.

Once you’re back on solid ground, watch the world go by under the blaze of the big screens at Times Square or meander along the Museum Mile on the Upper East Side.

Next, breathe deep in Central Park: the lungs of Manhattan and an outdoor oasis to be enjoyed by foot, cycle, carriage or even boat.

Staying up late is a must in the city that never sleeps – see if you can uncover the city’s hidden speakeasy-style bars.
