Feel like relaxing after a tough week of sightseeing? Instead of staying in your room, check out some relaxing things to do in nyc:
Spas or Massage are two of the most relaxing things to do in NYC
There are countless spas in New York, some of which are discussed in other blog posts, among the best are Ohm Spa, Great Jones Spa and Mario Badescu (mostly for facial treatments). However, there are other places to get massage at more reasonable rates (the typical spa massage costing $125/hour or more). These smaller Chinese establishments are usually much more simple environments, but the masseurs are first rate, often well-trained in China. We suggest Wu Lim Qi Gong Master at 145 Grand Street in Chinatown. (212) 925-1276.
Bowling at Bowlmor
Bowlmor has been a New York institution since 1938. Where else can you go bowling with stylish people and have drinks like you are at a hotel lounge?

Dim Sum in Chinatown
Dim Sum refers to a style of Cantonese food prepared in small individual portions and then served – usually from carts or steaming baskets. A delicious alternative to brunch, consider Jing Fong in Chinatown, the biggest, and one of the best. 20 Elizabeth St (212) 964-5256
