Destination: London, England, United Kingdom

1.FullSizeRender_5A city that feels like the “centre of the world”, London never ceases to amuse and entertain visitors. Home to interesting museums such as the National History Museum, the National Gallery, Tate Modern, the Victoria and Albert, and the Imperial War Museum; historical landmarks like Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Westminster Abby and St Paul’s Cathedral; picturesque public green spaces like Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, and a dizzying array of shops, restaurants and weekend markets, there’s always something to do in this town! Nightlife here is in a league of its own, with a staggering number of pubs, bars and legendary dance clubs, as well as a wide range of plays, musicals and other live performances in the West End.

Thankfully, London is a very walkable city, which means you can easily get from one attraction to the next without too much effort. The London metro is also simple enough to navigate.

If you’ve already been to all the well-known tourist attractions in the city centre and would rather get away from the tourist hordes, then why not stroll through some of the city’s colourful neighbourhoods like Shoreditch, Brixton, Camden, Peckham or Hamstead, where you can experience a more authentic, local side of the city while getting a sense of its ethnically diverse and creative spirit.

Cuisine: From Ethiopian to Peruvian, Indian to Cambodian, you can find almost any world cuisine here. But if you’re looking for proper British grub, then visit traditional pie and eel shop M. Manze, which was founded in 1902, the 150 year-old Golden Union Fish Bar for fish and chips, or enjoy a Sunday roast at gastropubs such The Anchor & Hope.
