Niagara Falls for the Umpteenth Time

Niagara Falls from the Rainbow Bridge

I went to the Niagara Falls for the umpteenth time three years ago. Back then, I was trying to apply for my work permit at the border (I need to leave and re-enter Canada to do so) but little did I know that I missed one important document. Hence, I couldn't apply for my work permit at the border.

Anyway, I decided to cross the Canada-United States border using the Rainbow Bridge which connects the Niagara Falls, New York and Niagara Falls, Ontario. I decided to do so because it was the nearest Canada-United States border to where I lived and I wanted to see the Niagara Falls from the USA side.

I have to say that it was interesting to see Niagara Falls from the USA side. It gave me a different feeling from when I see Niagara Falls from the Canadian side. You can actually feel that you're in a different county though you're looking at the same thing.

Things to note (based on my experience)
You have to pay a toll if you're walking from Canadian side the USA side. The toll was 50 cents (I read that they have raised the amount!) and you are allowed to pay it using CAD or USD. Based on the currency exchange rates, it was (and still is) cheaper to pay the toll using CAD. Also, you won't get an entry/exit stamp from both Canadian and USA immigrations. 

Niagara Falls, New York, United States of America



I have read on the net that the view from Canadian side is more pretty and mesmerizing than the USA side. And I couldn't agree more! The view of Niagara Falls from the USA side was kinda restricted. Well, at least from where I observed the view. I didn't really get to see the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. I didn't even get to see the whole Horseshoe Falls.

Having said that, I believe that I may get the better view of Niagara Falls if I decided to hop on the Maid of the Mist cause they have this high observation platform for their passengers. I also may get to see the better view of Niagara Falls if I decided to walk around the Niagara Falls State Park more.

Nevertheless, I was super stoked cause I got to see Niagara Falls from both Canadian and USA sides. Alhamdulillah for this opportunity :)

    1. USA visa valid lama lagi kan? Insya Allah boleh sampai sebelum expired :)

      Alkisahnya, aku pun baru tahu yang Niagara Falls dekat New York and Niagara Falls itself is a city 3 tahun yang lepas. Selama ni, aku ingat Niagara Falls ni dekat Buffalo, USA. So, I can totally understand kenapa kau ingat kau boleh pergi Niagara Falls masa kau pergi New York.

    1. I just googled waterfall in Hangul and you almost got it right. It's 폭포 or pogpo/pokpo. Not sure about the romanization. Hehe.

      Yeah, the view was quite something. It's okay. I only learned that Niagara Falls is located at the Canada-USA border few years ago as well. Sebelum ni ingat Niagara Falls ni dekat USA sahaja.

    1. Warna air yang macam ni la saya suka tengok. Biru je. Air terjun ni mengalir masuk Sungai Niagara kalau tak silap.

      Yes, Canadian side memang lagi cantik dari USA side but then I might be biased though.
