I finally became a pure tourist in the last day of my California conference trip. Although having transferred flights at San Francisco for quite a few times, this is actually the first time I stepped out of the airport and paid a visit to the city. Golden Gate Bridge is for sure, one of the must-visit sites. There are two things that you can always be impressed by California, the nice weather, and the beautiful flowers. And luckily I got both when I visited Golden Gate Bridge!
Palm Springs is said to be “the best vacation destination” in California, but for me, the most impressive things about Palm Springs are the ever-lasting sunshine and the amazing landscape of this small town. Looking from the air, this city is really “growing” out of the desert: it is surrounded by rocky mountains and even just a few miles from the downtown, what you will see is simply desert. Yet there are still fancy things going on here: golf courses, swimming pool, luxury hotels…And by the way, Palm Springs is sunny more than 300 days a year!
