Cable cars, painted ladies, and a famous zig-zag street await in San Fran

Think of a holiday in San Francisco and once the image of its famous fog lifts, you instantly picture attractions like the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Prison, vertiginous streets, beautiful Victorian architecture, cable cars and the largest Chinatown outside of Asia. The Haight Ashbury area is famous for being the centre of the Hippie movement and still retains an eclectic bohemian vibe. The city's other notable neighbourhoods are the Castro, home to San Francisco's queer community, and the Mission district which has a distinct Hispanic flavour.

More than just its flower child history, San Francisco has a brimming future as a city of thriving tech companies and bourgeoning artists. To cater to the growing creative community, San Fran has become a gourmand's delight with more restaurants per capita than any other major city in North America. Vegetarians and vegans are well catered for here, and the city is also renowned for its Asian cuisine – especially Chinese delicacies and sushi. Be sure to try the fresh seafood at Fisherman's Wharf and sample your way through the many microbreweries as well.
