Lose Yourself In LA's Neighbourhoods

The best way to discover Los Angeles is by exploring each of its vibrant multicultural neighbourhoods. From the eclectic and the progressive to the trendy and the laid-back theres a neighbourhood for every kind of traveller.


Downtown LA (DTLA) has come a long, long way from its humble beginnings as a tiny adobe settlement in 1781. Today, it’s home to world-class museums, exclusive entertainment venues and the most acclaimed dining scene on the West Coast. Begin with a stroll through the reinvented Grand Central Market, where you’ll find rows of spices, produce and vintage neon signage. In matters of arts and culture, DTLA can’t be beat. From landmark masterpieces like the Walt Disney Concert Hall to new additions such as the highly ‘Instagrammable’ Broad Museum, DTLA is home to some of LA’s most renowned cultural attractions. Spend hours marvelling at art at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), discover the history of music at the GRAMMY Museum, or soak in the rich heritage of Union Station.

The foodie will be spoilt for choice. Choose from imaginative food trucks and iconic dining rooms or venture out to taste the best in world cuisine in Little Tokyo, Chinatown, and LA’s oldest settlement, Olvera Street. The famed Arts District is within walking distance of Little Tokyo on the east side of DTLA. Home to the young, the creative and the inspired, this hub is home to galleries, boutiques, a hip-urban vibe and eye-catching street art – take your time as you soak in all that’s on offer.
