Preparing your trip to Los Angeles: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

1. The most widely used city transport is underground. The city also offers over 200 bus routes. The cost of a single trip will equal 1.25USD meanwhile the travel pass for a whole day will cost only 3.0USD. In the underground one can buy tickets in specialized slot machines set on every station. For a bus trip you can buy a ticket from a bus driver.
2. Travelers who give preference to taxi should better call a taxi by phone. It is just impossible to stop a taxi in the street. There are special taxi parking lots near bus stops, hotels and railway stations.
3. A bicycle is a popular way of transportation among city residents however cycling some city districts can be rather challenging. The most popular bicycle rental centers are considered to be Metro Rail ones.
4. Cruising the city is better with expert tour guides. The reason is that the important sights and landmarks are scattered around the city. Driving from one point of touristic interest to another may consume much time in case of lacking of experience.
5. Los Angeles offers tempting prices for car rent. However a private car is far not the best way for cruising the city. During rush hours all the major routes are traffic jammed. Choosing a car for rent you should better give preference to GPS equipped vehicles. Copyright
6. Tourists who are opting for beach recreation should take into consideration some rules and regulations. One can appear on the beach only in swimming suit. There are none of specialized nude beaches in the city.
7. Planning your leisure and entertainment you should reserve a table in advance not only in restaurants but at night clubs as well. Many entertaining centers reserve the tables for guests several weeks in advance. The tickets for tours, concerts and other events should also be bought in advance.
The choice of entertainment in Los Angeles for vacationers with children is simply mind-blowing. The city has attractive water parks, zoos, amusement parks, as well as many excellent cinemas … Open
8. The tips are commonplace in cafés and restaurants. The amount of tips depends on the rate of the establishment. In the upscale restaurants the cash reward is included into the total sum and equals commonly up to 15%. In small cafés and restaurants the tips of 5-10% will be quite enough.
9. In the public places one should be extremely watchful of personal things. Evenings are not recommended for setting off to the remote areas of the city and for walking along wind streets.
