A short 10 day trip to the United States, visiting 3 states (New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania)
Long story short - I had to fly to the United States for one reason - opening a bank account (see: How To Open A Bank Account in U.S., As A Non-resident Non - citizen, Wells Fargo Bank), for the flight we decided to go with Ukrainian airlines from Tbilisi via Kiev to New York city (see: About Tbilisi - Kiev - New York Flight by Ukrainian Airlines)
Unplanned flight delay in Kiev happened for 10 hours, during which I managed to craft a short day trip to Kiev (see: Short Day Trip To Kiev, Ukraine)
Once in the States, in second day's evening I was able to handle my financial related things and it was time for leissure. For first day stay we booked a cheaper hotel in Secaucus, offering fast and convenient connection to downtown Manhattan reachable in about 20 minutes ($6 per ride in public bus).
Did some shopping and sightseeing around Manhattan (bough lovely leather shoes from Aldo store)
On January second we bought a bus ticket to Philadelphia (again, traveling in US by public transport is very cheap, as we paid about $15 for single ticket). Once in Philly, booked a lovely hotel in the downtown area (China town) just a few blocks away from Reading Terminal market. Philly is amazing for leisure, calm and tranquil. Highly recommend.
Returned to New York city, this time booked luxury hotel near Empire State building and enjoyed slow days in Manhattan, trying out local Asian cuisine.
Here I'm listing all major and interesting places we discovered this time in America.
Speaking of expenses, I didn't counted after all, but now looking back it seems it was at about $4,000
