United Nations (UN) New York Tour


Most tourists relate traveling to New York as the purposes of shopping and dining but there aren't many visitors aware of the interesting attraction such as a tour at United Nations Headquarter which is located  on the eastern shore of Manhattan Island in New York.

Every year, around 1 million visitors from around the world join the guided tour at United Nations Headquarter in New York. The tour to United Nations Headquarter is always full thus, it's advisable to book your ticket(s) online before your trips. There will be tight security screening at the main entrance of the United Nations Headquarter so, be there as early as possible, at least 45 minutes early for the security screening before the guided tour starts.

Joining the guided tour at the United Nations Headquarter in New York gives me a good educational tour and understanding of the role as the United Nations Peacekeeper to the world. However, it's pity that I didn't have the opportunity to meet the Secretary-General of the United Nations like, Kofi Annan and Ban Ki-Moon whom I really respect them.
