Wayfarer travel TV show in HD: Series 2 Episode 12, the best of Los Angeles, soon connected to Brisbane on United Airlines

by James Wilkinson

On November 29, 2023, United Airlines will launch three weekly Los Angles-Brisbane flights on a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, becoming the first US carrier to operate the route and adding more options for Queenslanders travelling to Southern California.

With the new flights, and the increase in services between Brisbane and San Francisco to daily, United will be the largest carrier between the United States and Queensland.

To gear up for the new services, Wayfarer this week takes you to Downtown Los Angeles in Episode 12 of Series 2, and award-winning host James Gregory Wilkinson looks at some of the best things to see and do in the City of Angels.

In the episode, Wilkinson heads to three of the city’s best craft breweries in the Arts District and Downtown, and checks out hot retail and restaurant spot, The ROW DTLA.

Los Angeles’ craft beer scene has exploded in recent years and the city is now home to some of the best brews in America, including what’s being produced at Angel City Brewing and Imperial Western.

At The ROW DTLA, find top restaurants, retail stores, weekly markets and events in former warehouses that date back to 1917 and on this segment, Wilkinson finds some of the best spots.

In Series 2 of Wayfarer, being broadcast online across the world and onboard Fiji Airways, Wilkinson takes viewers across the globe to some of the best hotels, bars, restaurants, galleries and attractions that several of the world’s leading destinations have to offer.

The line-up for Series 2 includes: Austin, Texas, USA; Chicago, Illinois, USA; Fort Worth, Texas, USA; Hamilton Island, Queensland, Australia; Los Angeles, California, USA; New York City, USA; Paris, France; Shanghai and Beijing, China; and Singapore.
