The only city in the world to have an officially designated Filipinotown, Los Angeles accounts for the largest concentration of Filipino Americans in the United States. LA’s landmarks – and perpetually sunny weather – will be familiar to Filipino travelers steeped in entertainment: the Hollywood Sign atop Mount Lee, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Universal Studios in the San Fernando Valley area and the grand mansions of Beverly Hills, 92010. But there’s more to LA than the blinding lights of Hollywood. Head to Downtown LA for a day at the Broad Museum, The Last Bookstore and Little Tokyo. Discover the bustling dining and LGBT scene in West Hollywood. Let your inner bohemian out at Venice Beach. In LA, you can direct your own adventure and be the star of your own show.
The Juicy Leaf
Plant aficionados will drool over The Juicy Leaf’s impressive and well-curated collection of designer terrariums, succulent displays and flower arrangements. You can even design your own terrarium, if you’re feeling creative. And don’t worry if you don’t have a green thumb – pick up one of their low-maintenance air plants, or choose from a collection of pottery, candles, vintage objects and art sculptures.
