San Francisco travel tips

1) Take amazing sunset photos at Baker Beach in San Francisco

Baker Beach is a nudist beach that attracts tourists with the opportunity to take a photo against the backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge. Sunset shots are especially good at any time of the year.

2) Taxis in San Francisco are quite expensive, so it's better to use Uber or Lyft

The mounting fee in local taxis is $3.50 (€3), and then you pay $3 per mile (1.6 km). If you can, it's better to skip taxis or use Uber or Lyft, which are more profitable.

3) Pop into San Francisco's Chinatown for an unscheduled party

If you feel like partying, go to Chinatown in the evening, where you can accidentally get into bars in basements without signs with amazing drinks and a very strange atmosphere.
