Favorite thing: chill out in the most beautiful city in the world - <b><u>SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, U.S.A. </u></b>.....

Fondest memory: If I were given a choice to settle down in a city (<i>anywhere in the world</i>) outside of Singapore, I would surely choose San Francisco! For where else in the world will you be able to find brilliant colors of ornately painted, bay window <b>Victorian houses</b>; the sounds of foghorns and clanging <b>cable car</b> lines and a crisp smell of the bay... coupled with wonderful and friendly residents? And don't miss San Francisco's world-famous landmarks like the <b>Golden Gate Bridge</b>, <b>the Alcatraz</b>, <b>the Transamerica Pyramid</b> etc... all providing an unforgettable backdrop to an eclectic array of neighborhoods..... from bustling <b>Chinatown</b> and hip <b>North Beach</b> to the left-of-center <b>Castro District</b> and recently culturized <b>SoMa</b>.

<i>Ah</i>, San Francisco's charm is indeed infectious!!! First-time visitors certainly won't want to miss visiting the tranquil <b>Golden Gate Park</b> or the artsy <b>Palace of Fine Arts</b> or enjoying a <b>cable car ride on Nob Hill</b>. But a stroll around <b>Union Square</b> or through <b>Lombard Street</b> or a peaceful hour gazing east from <b>Ina Coolbrith Park</b> can be equally just as inspiring!!!

If you're interested to know more about this vibrant city, please do browse through my <a href='http://www.virtualtourist.com/m/.41281/278/?s=v&DM=1'target=newwindow>SAN FRANCISCO</a> travel page. <i>Danke</i>!
