Next Stop on the JW Marriott Tour—New York City!






This month I had the pleasure of being the guest luxury travel editor for  JW Marriott.  #GlobalLuxuryTravel

Thank you,  JW Marriott and the Architectural Digest Promotions Team.  I truly enjoyed giving a virtual tour of our beautiful world.  It was a lovely experience to retrace my footsteps through my travels with our social media friends by my side.

In addition to meeting remarkable photographers from around the world, I enjoyed the experience and engagement with YOU through my social media channels.  Have you enjoyed our travels so far?  Because we’re not done yet—our next stop is New York City!

If I had to come up with a list of the three top cities to visit in the U.S., I would say New York City, Las Vegas and Washington, DC.  What is it about New York that people love so much?

I have an aunt who will be in town this month, and I have not seen her since I left Vietnam.  And where does she want her family to take her? Yes, New York City.

Here’s a few things I love about New York City:



  • There isn’t any other city like New York. I love the lights, the pulse and the energy of the city, especially around Broadway.



  • New York City is a mecca for shopping—many people around the world come to New York just to shop!  I love strolling around the city to visit all the big shops as well as discovering small, independent boutiques.

I also want to thank Marty McPadden for capturing the spirit of New York so well in these fantastic photos.  Not only is he one of the nicest guys from the East Coast, he’s brilliant behind the camera.  Marty, thank you so much for allowing us to experience New York through your photographic lens!

Thank you for following along with JW Marriott and me.  So, how about you?  If you were to visit the U.S. for the first time, which city would you choose to visit?  What would be your top three choices?
