London is the capital and most populuous city of England, Great Britain and the United Kingdom. I never expected that I will be able to visit this country. As I am reluctant and shy in nature, I believed that God has a purpose and He used it as my stepping stone to be exposed to public interaction and international culture.
1. London has something for everyone.
In my 7 days stay, I realized that there is more to learn and to look forward for. London has something for everyone. No wonder it is one of the most visited cities.
2. London is a land of diversity.
It is so multicultural with over 300 languages being spoken. London is the best place to meet people from everywhere.
3. London has the best transport system.
Easy access to trains and buses is one of the simple joys that I love about London. One important thing to add on here is that people are disciplined when it comes to driving.
3. London is clean.
You can never see garbage everywhere. The streets are very clean. The sidewalks and alleys are well maintained.
4. London has a lot of iconic buildings and places to visit.
London is a touristic destination where you can have a chance to visit the queen and enjoy the fascinating view of the world’s famous sites.
The London Eye is the biggest ferris wheel I have seen. It stands 135m high above the city. I was standing at the riverside observation wheel to see this magnificent view.
Big Ben Clock Tower
At the city’s center stand the imposing Houses of Parliament and Elizabeth Tower. These are commonly called The Big Ben. I was told that the bell inside the clock tower weighs 13 tons and each dial is 7 meters in diameter.
The iconic Big Ben is a must see attraction in London.
Natural History Museum
This colossal building impressed a Victorian era where London’s collection of rarest animals in the world are being showcased.
Something is missing if there is no Chinatown. I was glad that London has it.
Street bands are common in London. I got a chance to have witnessed one when I was walking along the sidewalk.
I can see the old architecture of London from this bridge.
Opposite the Piccadilly Circus is the Criterion Restaurant, the most elegant and ancient restaurant located at the heart of London.
I missed those giant M&Ms I met!
