Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You've added Top of the Rock, Brooklyn Bridge, The Strand Bookstore, and other attractions to your itinerary. Visiting Narwhal Yacht Charters and Sands Point Preserve will get you outdoors. You'll explore and learn at Ellis Island and National Museum of the American Indian. There's much more to do: wander the streets of Fifth Avenue, see the interesting displays at The Morgan Library & Museum, look for gifts at Li-lac Chocolates, and explore the world behind art at Frick Collection.

To plan New York City vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Jakarta, Indonesia to New York City is an approximately 26-hour flight. You'll gain 12 hours traveling from Jakarta to New York City due to the time zone difference. In July, daily temperatures in New York City can reach 35°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) early enough to travel to Las Vegas.
