Asian in London

I’ve always wanted to go to London. Who doesn’t? Growing up, I’ve heard so many things about this place called London, the capital of England. The Big Ben. The London Eye. The Tower Bridge. London is one of the most popular city in the entire world, an iconic place for fashion, business, entertainment and, of course, traveling. This summer, I was so lucky to see it in person!Β 

London is the first city that I explored in Europe. It gave me the first taste of what Europe has to offer. It’s my first for the most part of my relationship with the continent. I fell in love first with London.

For that, London would always have a spot in my soft heart.

 

Hyde Park is one of my favorites as well. How could I not? Can’t you see how beautiful this garden behind me? Fabulous! I enjoyed taking pictures of these flowers. We also had lunch, a little picnic in it. How lovely!

It’s a perfect resting place for all the walking we do in London. You walk a lot in London! It’s true! Most “Londoners” don’t drive, they take the underground and for the most part, it is walking!

“Londoners” walk really fast too! They all seem so busy! Maybe that is why some people think they are not very friendly. Kidding. I don’t know. But I met a lot of “Londoners” who are just so adorably kind.

Oh! We also visited the British Museum because it was just walking distance to where we were staying.

Of course, the very much iconic Big Ben. How can I forgot about you? We woke up really early so we can take pictures in this very cliche spot with this very cliche post. Haha.

I love that it both includes the Big Ben and the ever signature London Red Booth.

This place is so busy especially on summer because everyone wants a photo with the Big Ben! So I suggest getting here early so you can have the place to yourself!

We stayed so close to these landmarks. Actually, we stayed like couple minutes away from Covent Garden which was really nice. I love being able to walk everywhere.

We went to a lot of London sites but putting them all in one post would not do them justice so I’ll divide my London trip in multiple post!

I’m also flying to Europe next week! I’m so excited!

Have a nice Thursday!

XOXO

    I like London very much, too. I was there last year. It really is one of the most interesting cities in the world. So much tradition and modernity at the same time!

    Hello Chy, saying Chai is easy! I am from India, the home of chai, after all πŸ˜‰ Thank you for following my blog. I am looking forward to reading yours. I too have a soft spot for London because it was my gateway to Europe. I came here in 2011 for the first time even though I had family living here – my aunt and uncle’s families. They would keep asking me to visit but I never did until I was working and when I did there was no looking back πŸ™‚ You have a lovely stay in London and tons of fun travelling through Europe. Cheers.

    • March 18, 2017 / 1:48 am

      Thank you so much! San Francisco trip is up now too! Omg! Agree! Love London! We need to be friends! Haha. I blog everyday! XOXO https://herlostmango.com

        London seems so cool! And no, I’ve never been to Europe, but I really want to!

  12. March 18, 2017 / 5:40 am

    So glad you liked London. I lived there for 2 years as a student and the thing I enjoyed the most was its diversity, to see so many different nationalities together, all living in harmony. Yes, the landmarks are iconic and beautiful, but what London stands for to me is integration, which speaks directly to my heart. Make sure you go to Chinatown, Leicester Square tube stop. I still love to visit everynow and then, as I only live a couple of hours south of the city. Enjoy!

    • March 18, 2017 / 8:47 pm

      Oh! Interesting! I would definitely check those places and blog about them! Meanwhile, two new posts are up now on the blog! An outfit post and my favorite beauty products! XOXO Hope you are doing well and hope to hear from you soon! XOXO
