    Tour is informative and interesting - must do! Bring your passport for a special UN stamp, as building exists in its own 'nation'.

    Definitely a place you need to check out whenever you visit the city,some of the world's biggest movers and shakers visit this place often! Security is super tight so proceed with caution.

    Ironically, it is the Secretariat - where thousands toil at clerical jobs - that defines the complex. The General Assembly may be where votes are cast and speeches made, but it's a visual afterthought

    The United Nations building is shown in the first scene of Live and Let Die (1973), where an MI6 agent is killed using a supersonic noise in his translation headphones.

    The guided tour is $16, lasts for approximately 45-60 min and it's really good: you get to see the security council, the general assembly, some expositions and more.

    The tour cost $16, but I loved. You got to walk around UN, know more about their story and projects they are involved. Higly recommended if you love IR.

    If you are a stand-in delegate from your country, give yourself an extra hour for them to contact your embassy and confirm you, and put diplomat plates on your drivers' car before you go to meetings.
