At BBC Focus we live and breathe science, even when we're having a bit of downtime on holiday. That's why we ask local scientists from around the world to give us their travel tips and tell us the best places to visit in their home city. Whether you are going on a short trip around the British Isles or travelling all the way across the planet, be sure to find out where some of our modern science heroes like to stop off to relax, have some food or inspire them towards more incredible discoveries.
Martha Kim, an Associate Professor in Computer Science at The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia University in New York, takes us around her top places to visit in NYC.
Dr Neelofer Banglawala, scientific software developer and member of ARCHER, the UK’s national supercomputing service at the University of Edinburgh, takes us around her top places to visit in Edinburgh.
