Visit California

  • It’s always sunny in California

    You can already tell that the state that offers you Disneyland Park would bring a lot of magic to the table, and California doesn’t disappoint. It perpetually rides the waves at iconic Baywatch-inspiring beaches. It enchants with imagination-defying national forests that rival the fantasy worlds in Hollywood movies. And no matter which road you take, it always seems to lead to a vineyard.

    So cheers to the charming and intoxicating California.

Explore California

  • Coastal cities

    California is coastal charm and stardust. You’ll swoon for San Francisco, home of the cable cars, streets lined with Victorian homes and iconic (often foggy) crimson bridge. You’ll go gaga over Los Angeles, where you’ll soak up the sun at its golden beaches, then soak up the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. And you’ll fall for San Diego’s bounty of world-renowned attractions—clear your calendar, just its Balboa Park alone will require several days to explore.

  • Sun ’n surf

    California hasn’t met a wave it didn’t like. Surf like the champions at Huntington Beach Pier in Huntington Beach, site of the Vans US Open of Surfing. Feeling adventurous? Head north to Mavericks in Half Moon Bay, where the waves can reach 24 metres. Cowabunga, indeed.

    If you prefer the waves crashing at your feet while you lounge on golden sands, check out Venice Beach in Los Angeles, famous for the quirky entertainers along its iconic beachfront boardwalk. Or ride the Ferris wheel between dips at Santa Monica Beach.

  • Famous attractions

    Venture to a galaxy far, far away at Disneyland Park in Anaheim. Soar above the Hogwarts castle with Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood. Chase the ultimate thrill on a record-breaking 17-storey-tall pendulum ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia. Or swap thrills for chills at Alcatraz Island in San Francisco, home to the infamous abandoned prison.

  • Natural splendours

    You might not know it, but California is big into the great outdoors.

    Yosemite National Park beckons with its plunging waterfalls, giant sequoias and sheer granite cliffs. Scale the towering El Capitan. Raft down the lazy Merced River. Or hike through the lush Tuolumne Meadows.

    Gawk at gargantuan sequoias, towering mountains and deep canyons at Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. Here you’ll meet General Sherman Tree, the world’s largest tree—84 metres tall, with an 11-metre-diameter base.

    The weird and wonderful shines through loudly at Joshua Tree National Park, inhabited by desert plains studded with wacky trees, odd-shaped boulders and a bewitching cacti grove.
