    haha....I need it for my next trip to San Fran!

    But Borders is everywhere...so can easily find some bookstore for them or pick one up from a gas station.
    Have fun! San Fran is a really interesting place....

      When is the best time to go to L.A or San Francisco? Thinking of doing a solo trip!

        How long would be ideal to spend for a holiday in San Fran? Are there any other places to visit from San Fran that's nearby and good to go? Sorry I'm not good with the geography of USA...

          Made a last min decision to go to California this weekend but have absolutely no idea where to go.

          Will be there for 1.5 weeks. Any suggestions where to go besides LA?

            what about factory outlets? Which is highly recommended?

            besides Coach, what are the brands should i look out for? and skincare/cosmetics?

            i'm growing more excited by the minute!!

            given the time constraints, is visiting san francisco a better option to Las vegas?

              The outlets in the west coast are pretty much identical..the standard brands which is worth looking out for are GAP, NIKE and Banana Republic...

              I think SF is a better choice in terms of sight seeing and shopping...Las vegas is just casino after casino...glamour glamour...bling bling...

              mapquest.com is my reliable source to driving around US!!...everyone should check it out...its simply amazing...

                  Hi there.. Anyone been to the Disneyland in USA before? Care to share the experience? How long do you spend there? Can we 'comb' the place within a day?
                  Is there Disney World here also?

                    heyhey

                    one day definitely not enough esp during the US holiday season.

                    i only spend one whole day there( cos didnt plan to hang out for 2 days at disney) from 10-12 midnight and that was during 2006 summer..super duper crowded..hot weather...long queue line...taking pic with the characters and queing for the rides..

                    the 50th anniversary fireworks were amazing!!...

                    make sure u explore the outside shopping promenade too...lots of food and shopping to be done...and that includes Disney world(think thats *** they call the disney shop there..)

                    there's california adventure too...more exciting rides..cater more for the adults..=)

                    i stayed at the Anabella Hotel( 3-4 star), only 10 min walk to Disneyland...very very nice hotel ,not too ex and highly recommended..

                    hope this helps..

                                i travelled with my SO to those cities except SF in Feb this year. i started off my trip in Vegas which i spend 6 days there. Two of the days was spend at factory outlets, went to 2 of them and spend a day each there. Another day was spend going to Grand canyon, which I think is a must to go if you are going to Vegas. there were different travel agents arranging for such tours but i managed to find the cheapest one. the rest of the days were spend walking around the strip. if you are going around to many places in vegas, it will be better if you drive as the taxi are very expensive. i had spend quite alot on taxi fares.

                                went to LA next by internal flight. their internal flights can be quite cheap if you book the tickets earlier, as the later you book the more expensive the price. i spend around 4 nights there, 1 and half days at disneyland and adventure theme park, a day at universal studio, 1 day shopping and going to hollywood area and another day stranded somewhere outskirt as our rented car broke down. we waited all the way from morning till late afternoon then they arranged for a change of car. another thing to note, if you are renting a car, go for full insurance. we were lucky that we got the full insurance for the car as we met with an accident in our next stop san diego, else cannot imagine how much we need to pay back the car rental company.

                                after that i spend another 4 days at san diego, going to the seaworld, legoland and the san diego zoo. nothing much there except sightseeing but the tax is the lowest among the cities i went so i did some shopping there other than in vegas. LA's tax is the highest among these cities.

                                i spend total of 3 weeks in US, as i went to the city that my SO was staying for a few days after touring. oops, such a long post. hehe.. but 2 weeks should be enough for your trip if you plan your travel itinerary well and i would suggest that you have an allowance of at least a day when you are back in SG as you will be having jet lag
                                What is the name of the internal flight yu booked? Cause i will need it to from LA to SAN FRAN.i will be stayi ng at the green tortise hostel in San Fran and the venice beach hostel in LA, have you tried b4? Any other recommendations?
