And then don’t miss El Pueblo – the birthplace of Los Angeles.
You’ll love it!
The most iconic commercial building in Downtown Los Angeles and one of the oldest structures in LA!
The Broad, or the Museum of Contemporary Art
This art cluster has no rivals in America. Neither New York City, nor San Francisco or Chicago can beat the Impressive collection of these two giants. The $130-million Broad with 2000 pieces of art or the MOCA downtown Los Angeles with about 5000 artworks are the epicenter of the art in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles Central Library
You don’t have to be a connoisseur of ancient Egyptian design or Art Deco to appreciate the limestone sculptures and 12 murals depicting California history. Being one of LA’s most treasured institution, the 1926 Central Library is also a very cozy nook.
The place in focus here is the one and only 1923 Millennium Biltmore Hotel. Moorish carved wood ceiling, rose marble fountain, angelic themes… should we continue?
Grand Central Market
Being a historic charm, this 1907 landmark is nowadays a hub of artisan coffee and food.
Angel’s Flight Railway
The world’s shortest railway (90 m – 298 ft). Angel’s Flight is not currently operating, but we’re you’d still want to take a picture with the 1901 funicular which has an impressive angle, by the way!
Tallest skyscrapers of DTLA. Financial district
Explore the most active district in Downtown with a 72-story eye-catching US Bank Tower – one of the tallest buildings in America.
Broadway Theater District

Staples, Microsoft Theater, LA Live
LA Live surrounds Microsoft Theater and Staples Center. La Live is the premier sports and music venue in Los Angeles featuring all kinds of restaurants, night clubs, a bowling alley, movie theaters and The Grammy Museum. It’ll be a good choice if you want to be dropped off here to explore the area, check out the Grammy Museum, try LA’s most lauded restaurants and finish the day with a movie and popcorn.
Or else you can opt for LACMA, Petersen Automotive Museum and La Brea Tar Pits as your final destination, and your guide will leave you there for self-exploration.
You can just as well get back to the hotel or finish at some bar after the tour. Why not? You’ve seen way too much for the day and deserve some sparkling wine and peaceful environment.
Opened in 2007, this 56,000 m2 (600,000 ft2) area is a paradise for shoppers, gourmands, and pretty much all tourists. Enjoy the music-fountain show that plays every hour, one of the live performances that sometimes take place here, or take a trolley car that runs from The Grove to the adjacent Farmers Market.
Happy place for happy people. Don’t forget to take happy pictures!
What is Rodeo Drive? It is an iconic blend of classic architectural styles, the $200 million “Two Rodeo” that resembles a romantic European avenue, the place for shopping for Leonardo DiCaprio and Britney Spears, and the must-see Los Angeles attraction during winter holidays with its unique Christmas décor.
You might already have an idea what Rodeo Drive is, but as an Asian proverb goes - Better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times.
The 1.6-miles Strip is the heart of the City of West Hollywood and used to be the playground to the former Hollywood elite like Greta Garbo and Marilyn Monroe.
Today The Strip is still a bright enclave that offers everything from world-class restaurants, bars and hotels to music venues, nightclubs and upscale shopping.
