New York Highlights
New York is a must-visit destination on everyone’s list. A towering cityscape full of iconic buildings that is infused with beautiful green spaces and awash with people, history, colour and some of the best food you’ll ever eat. It’s difficult to overstate how magical ‘The City that Never Sleeps’ really is, but once you’re here, she’s yours to discover.
The City of Landmarks
New York City is home to striking and often revolutionary architecture in the form of glossy skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building, the Art Deco style of the Chrysler Building and the quirkiness of the Flatiron Building. Its famous landmarks also include contemporary museums, expansive parks and historic monuments, all waiting to be explored.
New York City is renowned worldwide for its iconic shopping opportunities, from the legendary elegance of Fifth Avenue and Macy’s - an 11-story department store in Herald Square - to the scores of retro clothing shops and bustling neighbourhood flea markets. So, in our opinion, you may need another suitcase!
There is a melting pot of different cultures, flavours and styles in New York, which is reflected in its ever-revolving cornucopia of restaurants, bars and cafés in all corners of the city. There are long-standing establishments serving up classic dishes within a familial, community atmosphere, as well as Michelin-starred fine dining spots and pop-up food stands - both packing a punch with equally delicious fare.
New York is abundant with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, whether it’s catching a Broadway show, taking flight in a helicopter ride over the Statue of Liberty or riding a horse and carriage through Central Park. Yet, excitement can be found even in the seemingly routine; hail down a famous yellow taxi, navigate the frenetic subway system or gaze through the shop window at Tiffany & Co. for a truly unforgettable experience.
A trip to Hawaii is a feast for all the senses. Dine on its exquisite, Asian-inspired foods, dance its ancient hula routines, and take in its otherworldly landscapes, which will transport you to heaven on earth.
Hawaii’s incredible and diverse landscape is instantly recognisable, from its rocky promontories and lush mountain peaks to its golden swathes of sand and its rugged volcanic craters. It’s no wonder that these islands of striking natural beauty are the backdrop for many Hollywood films and TV series. You can rent a car and drive some of the most scenic coastal routes in the world or book a boat or helicopter tour and see the full scope of the islands’ splendour from a distance.
The beaches in Hawaii are the true definition of paradise and if you close your eyes and picture the perfect beach, you’ll end up here. Miles upon miles of golden sands are edged by turquoise-blue waters and flanked by swaying palm trees, while its jet-black volcanic beaches are equally as captivating and provide the perfect backdrop for a Pacific Island holiday. From the bustling tourist vibes of Oahu’s Waikiki Beach to the tranquil lagoons and unspoiled coves of the smaller islands, there’s a beach to suit everyone in Hawaii.
Much like the famed outlet shopping in Orlando, Hawaii has its own fair share of excellent malls and retailers where you can pick up designer clothing for a fraction of the original price – you may need to bring an empty suitcase for all those bargains. And if luxury shopping is more your thing, then Ala Moana Center in Waikiki will be your mecca!
Steeped in history and deeply spiritual beliefs, Hawaii observes many traditional customs through music, dance, arts, and cultural practices, and is proud to share them with its visitors. There is a profound connection with the land, the ocean and the natural world that shapes these magnificent islands, running through everything from the food, the landmarks and everyday life. Dive in and absorb the magical culture of Hawaii, whether it’s a visit to the Polynesian Cultural Center, witnessing a fiery hula performance at a beachside lū’au, or taking a trip to one of its many sacred ancient sites.

NEW YORK & HAWAII HOLIDAY FAQS
NEW YORK & HAWAII HOLIDAY FAQS
NEW YORK & HAWAII HOLIDAY FAQS
Planning your multi-centre itinerary? Well, New York and Hawaii might just be the ideal twin-destination experience. The best time to enjoy both locations is spring and autumn. For New York, the city's climate is moderate and attractions less crowded - think cherry blossoms in Central Park and crisp autumn leaves. For Hawaii, anytime is magical, but visiting between mid-April and early June or September to mid-December allows you to dodge the peak tourist seasons, ensuring great weather and more serene beaches.
New York operates on Eastern Standard Time (EST) while Hawaii follows Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HAST). There's a 5-hour time difference between the destinations. Remember, Hawaii doesn't observe Daylight Saving Time, so during that period (from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November), the difference becomes 6 hours. Adjusting to the time difference can take a day or two, so it's wise to factor in some relaxation time upon arrival.
New York is 5 hours behind the UK, while Hawaii is 11 hours behind - bear this time difference in mind when planning your travels home.
Choosing the right airports is essential. John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is the premier international gateway to the U.S. But if you'd prefer the proximity to Manhattan, consider LaGuardia Airport (LGA), which primarily handles domestic flights. For those open to landing in New Jersey but remaining close to New York City, Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) is an excellent alternative, offering a mix of domestic and international flights.
In Hawaii, Honolulu International Airport (HNL) on Oahu is the archipelago's primary airport, with the most direct flights from the mainland. If your Hawaiian dream starts on a different island, airports like Kahului Airport (OGG) on Maui, Lihue Airport (LIH) on Kauai, and Kona International Airport (KOA) on the Big Island could be ideal, though they may have fewer direct connections.
For help with your New York and Hawaii twin-centre holidays flights, our friendly US team is available to advise you.
We're thrilled to offer price guarantees for up to 36 months before your twin-centre holiday begins. Lock in your perfect package with a minimal upfront deposit, and distribute the remaining holiday cost through monthly instalments.
Absolutely! While Manhattan is iconic and brimming with landmarks, New York's other boroughs offer a wealth of diverse experiences. Brooklyn is home to artsy neighborhoods like Williamsburg and DUMBO, and the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park. Queens, with its multicultural flair, invites you to try culinary adventures from around the globe. The Bronx is home to the historic Yankee Stadium and Bronx Zoo. Staten Island is a quieter retreat, with attractions like the Snug Harbor Cultural Center. Venturing beyond Manhattan allows you to experience a more authentic, local side of NYC, often with fewer crowds and at a more relaxed pace.
The Big Apple has a treasure trove of iconic landmarks to add to your New York multi-centre itinerary. The Statue of Liberty is a picture-perfect staple, while Central Park is ideal for chilled-out days amid nature. Times Square pulsates with lights and energy, drawing visitors to its theatres and busy billboards. The Empire State Building offers breathtaking city views, as does the newer One World Observatory. The Brooklyn Bridge is both an architectural marvel and a historical icon, connecting Manhattan to Brooklyn. The 9/11 Memorial & Museum is also worth a visit to pay tribute to this significant chapter in the city's history.
Before visiting New York City you need to know that it's a bustling metropolis with five diverse boroughs, each with a unique vibe. Manhattan's skyscrapers house renowned attractions, while Brooklyn offers trendy neighbourhoods and cultural gems.
Public transportation, primarily the subway, is efficient and often the best way to navigate. Expect a mix of cultures; for example, NYC has over 800 languages spoken. Wear comfortable shoes as the city is best explored on foot. Be ready for varying weather, with cold winters and humid summers. Lastly, while New York has its tourist hotspots, some of its magic lies in its hidden gems and local haunts.
There are so many things to see and do during your stay in Hawaii. This includes the famous Volcanoes National Park on Big Island, which showcases molten lava landscapes and active craters. Pearl Harbor on Oahu is a more sombre reflection on history, with the USS Arizona Memorial. Maui's Road to Hana is great for a road trip, passing waterfalls and lush scenery. On Kauai, the Napali Coast features towering sea cliffs and blooming valleys best viewed from a boat or helicopter. Oahu's Waikiki is packed with surfing, shopping, and nightlife. The Polynesian Cultural Center provides insights into Pacific island cultures. From rich history to natural wonders, Hawaii's got it all.
Hawaii is a tropical paradise, renowned for its stunning natural beauty, verdant rainforests, majestic volcanoes, and stunning beaches. Its islands are a dream for surfers thanks to it having some of the world's best waves. The Aloha State is also deeply rooted in Polynesian culture, evident in traditions like the hula dance and luaus. The spirit of "Aloha" pervades, emphasising love, peace, and compassion. Additionally, Hawaii is celebrated for its gorgeous culinary delights like poke, loco moco, and its refreshing shaved ice! The USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor is also there as a poignant reminder of its historical significance during WWII.
New York City's fame stems from its rich history, diverse culture, and iconic landmarks. It's a global hub for finance, fashion, arts, and entertainment. Broadway draws a crowd with its theatrical productions, while Wall Street is a symbol of global finance. The city has been immortalised in countless films, songs, and books, making its landmarks like the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, and Central Park instantly recognisable worldwide. Cultural institutions like the MoMA and the Metropolitan Museum further solidify its reputation.
New York City is a culinary mecca, boasting iconic eateries that have stood the test of time and newer establishments making waves. Katz's Delicatessen serves legendary pastrami sandwiches and has been a fixture since 1888. Joe's Pizza in Greenwich Village offers classic New York-style slices beloved by locals. The opulent Grand Central Oyster Bar has been dishing out seafood since 1913, while the trendy Shake Shack, which began as a humble hot dog cart, now draws crowds for its burgers. For a sweet fix, Serendipity's frozen hot chocolate is a must-try. And no visit is complete without a cheesecake slice from Junior's in Brooklyn.
Your Hawaii multi-centre itinerary must feature some of Hawaii’s breathtaking beaches. Oahu's Waikiki Beach is iconic, offering golden sands and excellent surfing. Nearby, the North Shore lures surf aficionados with its world-renowned waves. Maui's Ka'anapali Beach provides crystal-clear waters and a historic black rock diving spot. Over on Kauai, Hanalei Bay is a picturesque crescent with mountainous backdrops. Big Island's Hapuna Beach is renowned for its expansive white sands and ideal swimming conditions. Lanikai Beach, often dubbed one of the world's best, is Instagram-ready with its powdery sands and turquoise waters.
Hawaii's top draw has to be its volcanic landscapes at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island. Here, visitors can witness the raw power of nature with Kīlauea and Mauna Loa, two of the world's most active volcanoes. The spectacle of molten lava meeting the ocean, creating dramatic steam clouds and adding new land, is breathtaking. Numerous trails offer varying vistas of craters,scorched earth, and regenerating forests. For a holistic Hawaiian experience, understanding its fiery origins at this UNESCO World Heritage site is essential.
Absolutely, the Statue of Liberty is well worth visiting. This iconic symbol of freedom and democracy stands on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, greeting visitors with its majestic presence. In fact, we believe that no multi-centre holidays to New York and Hawaii would be complete without an obligatory photo in front of it.
You can explore the statue's pedestal and museum, learning about its history and significance. Moreover, the ferry ride to the island offers stunning views of the Manhattan skyline and the statue itself, creating a memorable experience. It's a symbol of hope, welcoming generations of immigrants to the United States. The cultural and historical importance of the Statue of Liberty makes it a must-visit attraction for anyone in New York City.
