The mesmerizing views of the Golden Gate Bridge Cable car, and few other equally interesting places in San Francisco:
One would need a tripod to take good photographs .
Without it, you end up with pictures like these.
The beautiful Hotel Argonaut: the Argonaut Hotel is perched on the edge of the Bay at the busy Fisherman's wharf, and brings a bit of luxury to this popular area. The Hotel's architecture features original red brick walls and wooden beams and it was worth capturing it in the camera, while we were there : for it is a hotel only for the rich and famous.
The deserted view of the city at night, giving such a eerie feeling of stillness- creepy enough to give you goosebumps.....
The Transamerica Pyramid:
San Francisco's Chinatown was first established in the mid 19th century, attracting immigrants mostly from China's Guangdong Province. Most of these individuals had jobs with the Central Pacific Railroad. They soon established their own town within the city.
Most of the shops are located around Grant Street, the central axis of Chinatown's tourist area. Here all lampposts are ornamented, very colorful and very Chinese. Tourists and locals jostle for space on the narrow sidewalks along the many souvenir shops, eateries and herbal shops.
This landmark hotel is one of San Francisco's grand dames, operating continuously since 1928 in the heart of Union Square.
However, aside from shopping visitors can walk the streets and enjoy fine art galleries, sit in the plaza and enjoy the sun, go see a show at one of the many theaters or dine at some of the best restaurant in the city.

While waiting for the cable car, you are never bored as street musicians keep entertaining you all the while. The waiting too is just 10 minutes.
San Francisco is an array of hills and valleys, and the cable car will take you up and down like a slow roller coaster ride, which you would really enjoy with views that are stunning and this is something you must never miss if you ever plan a trip to the US of America.
How many times I have seen pictures of people hanging from cable cars like this in Travel channels, well I did too when I was there!!
More on this and other interesting things about San Francisco, I will share in some future blog.
So much to do and so little time to see everything: I can only leave you with some views of San Francisco seen through my eyes.
