San Francisco generally is considered one of the most charming cities in the US, and I totally agree with that. It's a very popular tourist destination, with same reasons. I've found the city appealing, since it's quite liberal, prosperous, multiculturally diverse with picturesque views and streets.

As I mentioned earlier, the city is affluent and cosmopolitan, and my first impression about it was entertaining, I've seen all kinds of people, lots of shops, amazing skyscrapers, the famous cable cars, the cities trademark, pleasant climate, and great atmosphere. Let it be day or night,the city itself is always crowded, no matter if you're in a bar, restaurant, a historic place, chinatown,and even the streets in general.

The city has loads of amazing and renowned restaurants, clubs, and pubs and I strongly recommend San Francisco for those who are passionate party or cuisine lovers. Nightlife is vigorous in San Francisco, and I highly suggest that you should experience it if you're visiting the city.

The Golden Gate Bridge, The California street, Chinatown, the Embarcadero, Pier 39 the Haight Ashbury hippie district, the Union Square, the Alcatraz and basically the whole city center are spectacular in every way, and the people are very cordial.

Although the city in general is considered expensive, it is affordable for almost every budget, nevertheless, it is exceptionally beautiful and a worthy destination, San Francisco is a must see at least for once in a lifetime.

San Francisco, CA overviewWhile wandering through Chinatown's streets and alleys, don't forget to look up. Above street level, many older structures have ornate balconies and cornices. The architecture on the 900 block of Grant Avenue and Waverly Place is particularly noteworthy, though some locals decry it and similar examples as inauthentic adornment meant to make their neighborhood seem "more Chinese." San Francisco's charms are great and small. You wouldn't want to miss Golden Gate Park, the Palace of Fine Arts, and the Golden Gate Bridge. But a walk down the Filbert Steps or through Macondray Lane or a peaceful hour spent gazing east... Read more »
