New Orleans travel tips

1) See the eerily stunning above-ground vaults at the St. Louis Cemetery in New Orleans

Have a walk around the St. Louis Cemetery at 425 Basin Street in New Orleans. Unlike most American cities, the graves are presented in above-ground vaults here; they’re intricately decorated and eerily stunning. Try to find the burial place of the most popular resident — the Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau.

2) Avoid taking photos with the “street entertainers” in New Orleans

You may come across the “street entertainers” on the popular streets of New Orleans. Try not to take a photo of or with any of them; they will expect and ask for a tip.

3) Admire New Orleans from the roof at the Hot Tin Rooftop Bar

Observe the stunning views of New Orleans at the Hot Tin Rooftop Bar at 2031 St Charles Avenue. Prices for cocktails (like a Dream Park cocktail) start from $8, which is a great value for money for such a great view.
