Didn't take to Hollywood at all - the city tour buses are a little unique here as they don't take in any sights - simply the large gates (not even the houses) of the rich and famous. Good fun in the hostel but overall, it's a soulless place which, ironically, has an unparalleled influence on Western culture. Downtown LA, apart from an impressive Frank Gehry designed music hall and a brand new $200m Catholic Cathedral, has little to recommend it either.
