the other side San Francisco! Finally a nice and windy weather that’s way colder than LA. You might be wondering why the title of this post is “the city that knows how.” In 1911, President William Howard Taft bestowed the “city that knows how” title on San Francisco, then recovering from the 1906 earthquake. I believe San Fran is also the city that knows how to make fortune cookies and california roll 😂
Popular sites in San Fran are obviously the Golden Gate Bridge, the former Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary, Fisherman’s Wharf, and the largest Chinatown outside Asia. But less popular places like Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory, Good Mong Kok bakery, Cable Car museum, and the Japanese Tea Garden are also worth visiting. Public transport here in SF is pretty easy to ride, and there’s plenty to choose from – MUNI, cable car, and Uber. One-way ride in the Cable Car costs $7 per person, while MUNI costs $2.25. I found that sometimes, it is cheaper to ride with Uber than with MUNI.
Once called “the bridge that couldn’t be built,” today it is called “the most photographed bridge” in the world. I really like the weather here in SF! It’s so nice outside when the wind is blowing and the sun is shining, unlike in LA where everywhere I went is super hot 🔥
