Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Do your shopping at Fifth Avenue and Tiffany & Co.. Get some cultural insight at Times Square and American Museum of Natural History. There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock Observation Deck, appreciate the history behind 9/11 Memorial, and don't miss a visit to Ellis Island.

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airports are La Guardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport. December in New York City sees daily highs of 11°C and lows of 3°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
