Los Angeles, city of a thousand faces
After booking a flight to Los Angeles, start planning your trip into the heart of the American dream ! The largest city on the US West Coast is a whirlwind of activity and a symbol of the American way of life.
On a flight to Los Angeles, it's impossible to miss the giant Hollywood sign, which overlooks the City of Angels from the hill of the same name. The letters are a reminder that LA is the capital of the American movie industry, the world's leading producer of blockbusters! To go behind the scenes, head to Universal Studios, before strolling down Hollywood Boulevard to admire the famous Walk of Fame or the spectacular Grauman's Chinese Theatre. To take a peek at the glamorous homes of movie stars, make your way to the neighbourhoods of Beverly Hills or Bel Air, where extravagant villas abound.
Take part in another aspect of American way of life at Venice Beach, where you can enjoy a jog against the backdrop of the artistic happenings of this legendary location. It will take plenty of confidence if you want to strut your stuff on the beaches of Malibu and Santa Monica where the sand stretches as far as the eye can see and perfectly sculpted bodies are the norm! With its more natural setting, Griffith Park offers a breath of fresh air and a time out in the bustling city. For thrill-seekers, there is always Six Flags Magic Mountain, a theme park larger than Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood, with its giant roller coasters !
Highly cosmopolitan, as described by Los Angeles travel guides, LA has as many neighbourhoods as it has ethnic communities: Little Armenia, Little Tokyo and Thai Town invite you to tour the world without leaving the city ! Los Angeles is also a prime cultural destination, home to the MOCA and Getty Center and their wealth of collections.
