The option of combining a city break with a beach holiday is a very popular choice with holidaymakers. This two-centre holiday to New York City and The Dominican Republic pairs one of the best city break destinations in the world with luxurious all-inclusive resorts and clear azure waters. Sounds like the perfect match to us!
You’ll start your holiday in New York, this city has so much to offer visitors, there is always something to see or do. Spend the day marvelling at artistic masterpieces at The Met and Guggenheim Museums. Take the Staten Island Ferry and sail past the Statue of Liberty. Visit Ellis Island and discover the history of America’s immigrants who flocked from the four corners of the globe to make a fresh start in the new world. Take the elevator to the top of the Empire State Building for breath-taking views over the city, alternatively visit the Observatory at the top of the One World Centre downtown in the financial district for a different perspective on the city’s skyline.
After as many of New York’s museums, galleries, attractions and restaurants as you can fit in, it will be time to kick back and relax in The Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic was once just an exotic Caribbean Island , it is now a fantastic holiday destination, one we happily recommend. Since 1998, food, hotel and beach standards have greatly improved and are now world class. The country has a wonderful laid back, relaxed vibe. It’s fair to say that the Dominican Republic, with its stunning mountains, sun drenched sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and impressive colonial architecture, is hot, hot, hot right now!
