Los Angeles, CA – More Information

Discover Los Angeles, official tourism site:

Los Angeles is an expansive city spread out over many miles. With good traffic you can drive over an hour and still be in the greater Los Angeles area.

Due to its size, there are many visitor centers and small cities contained within the greater LA area.
Click on the Chamber/Visitor Centers link below.

In addition we also provide links for general Los Angeles tourism, specific attractions, studio tours and other area related information.

We think Los Angeles should become a sister city with Bangkok – both are called City of Angels, and both are similar sizes.

This full color guide to Los Angeles is categorized by neighborhood. LosAngeles is fairly spread out (compared to say San Francisco). As a result, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the size and diversity of this metropolis but this guidebook does a good job of just focusing on the main neighborhoods of interest – whether it be historical, for shopping, or movie related.

In addition, the book highlights the fun activities, the best places to eat, sleep and shop. Fold out color coded and numbered maps accompany each neighborhood. Also, short sections highlight the “best of Los Angeles”, star studded attractions and some of the city’s nicest urban experiences. The book is designed to fit into a pocket and be carried with you as you travel; it is thin and long in shape.
