Seattle is nicknamed the “Emerald City”, and it’s easy to see why – at every turn you’ll find lush, evergreen trees amid the city’s steely skyscrapers. Sightseeing here can take you to sandy beaches or snowcapped mountains; to historical cultural sites or dramatic modern-day art venues, such as the Seattle Art Museum.

    Don’t miss a trip to historic Pike Place Market, where stalls are piled high with colourful fruits, pungent cheeses, and freshly sliced meats. For 360-degree views, zoom up to the Space Needle’s observation deck and see Elliott Bay’s bustling waterfront, Downtown’s dazzling lights, and tree-covered Mt Rainier.
