Essentials in Los Angeles

Film studios: Los Angeles decides what goes and what doesn't go into cinemas. This is where it all begins. Ever wanted to take a look behind the scenes? Head to Universal Studios in Hollywood or Warner Brothers to take a tour. You might even bump into a star or two!

Getty Centre: This is one of the largest and most visited museums in the world. The museum's central garden is a work of art on its own, 12,400 square metres large!

Accommodations in Los Angeles

The first thing you need to decide when looking for hotels in Los Angeles is which neighbourhood you'd like to stay in. LA is huge and if you rely on public transportation your trip will be slow and gruelling. A public bus takes at least 1h 30mins to go from Santa Monica to downtown. Stick to hotels in the area that you most want to discover.
