Take a Bite Out of the Big Apple in Sin City
Hey Australia! Yeah, I'm talking to you! Your dollar is king at the moment. It's better than no other currency in the world right now. This means one thing - travel is cheap. Head to the USA and you'll get the most bang for your buck. For every Aussie dollar you'll get US$1.05. You'll be blown away at how inexpensive travel in the US is compared to Australia. A main meal in a nice restaurant that would cost you $30-40 back home will only set you back $15-20 in the US. Shopping, particularly for clothes and electronics, is unbelievable. Not only will you get the latest products but you'll get designer labels like Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren for less than it would cost to shop at Target back home.
So, where should you go in America with all those Aussie dollars burning a hole in your pocket? Melbourne to New York flights are currently just over $1300 which is an absolute bargain. You can see a show in Times Square, grab a slice of pizza, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and see the Statue of Liberty. There's no denying that New York is one of the best tourist destinations in the world. Even if you did want to go all the way to the East Coast, you needn't.
