San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Step out of the city life by going to Alcatraz Island and Lincoln Park. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Ferry Building Marketplace and Ghirardelli Square. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Francisco: Oxbow Public Market (in Napa) and Seed Bank (in Petaluma). There's much more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with City Lights Booksellers & Publishers, browse the eclectic array of goods at Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, snap pictures at Golden Gate Bridge, and take a stroll through Union Square.

To find photos, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our San Francisco tour builder .

Bangkok, Thailand to San Francisco is an approximately 19.5-hour combination of train and flight. Traveling from Bangkok to San Francisco, you'll gain 15 hours due to the time zone difference.
