For many Malaysians the United States of America has long been a dream destination, but with increased security measures in recent years, it’s important all travellers plan wisely when preparing for a trip of a lifetime. The U.S is huge (at 9.8 million square kilometers) and is home to a plethora of amazing sightseeing spots and national parks across the country, from the spectacular Grand Canyon to Lake Tahoe. The U.S. is also home to popular iconic landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the Golden Gate Bridge, Niagara Falls and even Walt Disney World. With so many unique landscapes to explore, visitors really are spoiled for choice.
If you want some downtime, plan an escape to Maui’s idyllic beaches, or visit the snow-capped Colorado Rockies in Aspen for some incomparable skiing and hiking trails. Food aficionados must try the flagship thick BBQ ribs and smoked brisket at a Texas roadhouse, steaming plates of fresh lobster at Maine, or oysters and champagne in California wine bars. As with planning any trip and considering which activities to do, make sure you add travel insurance for the USA to your check list.
It’s a good idea to be aware of your holiday spending as the US is pricier than our neighbouring Asian destinations, and also don’t forget to pocket some spare change for tipping. Price tags in the U.S. won’t state what tax percentages will be added, as each city and state are different, so you’ll need to have your ‘Math game’ strong! For those of you looking for sustenance as you explore, fear not as you’ll easily find a 24/7 eatery to satisfy your need for a 3am Double Quarter Pounder or a 5am espresso shot.
