A backpacker’s guide to London
London seems to be a place that every traveler, who are traveling on a budget wants to avoid. However, if you look at it from another perspective, it’s one place you can travel and still not break a bank. It could be a backpacker’s haven or it could still not, depending on your planning and in-depth knowledge about the city.
London is the busy city according to a travel guide, walking anywhere can turn into a test of patience. The city requires you to exercise patience, from flight booking to lodging, parking space, eating and moving around.
It’s one city that can connect you to any other cities in the world, what I called “the gateway to the world.”
All races, cultures, food, and styles are represented here in London. If you are looking for a global city, you have found a place in London.
Here are some backpacker’s guides:
Contrary to the general belief, the city isn’t all about paying virtually for everything to get high-end delights. London has a lot of things to do for free, to cut-down cost.
There are great parks and venues to go for free activities, museums to catch fun for free, national and district parks to explore. Have you being to St. James Park and Green Park before?. Some places will “wow” you.
Additionally, there’s Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park which have excellent views to get lost of what nature brings.
Marketplaces don’t ring the bell like some of the Asian markets but some exceptional things to remember them, such markets include Portobello Market and Camden Market.
Cheap, delicious meals
I said earlier on that, every race is represented here and expects to see some competitions amongst food vendors. You can have a loaded meal for less than £7 at popular joints like Bleeker Street Burger, The Rib Man and other joints. If you are a lover of Chinese cuisines, you are at home in London more than in Beijing. They are many at Silk Road at low prices.
Is getting interesting; you think London is expensive, let me shock you. You can get nice places to eat under £5; we have Brick Lane Beigel., Soho’s Bao, a restaurant that serves mouthwatering steamed delicious Taiwanese buns and the list goes on.
London is a busy city, the gateway to the world, expect to see the congested street, right from Heathrow airport to Norfolk and Cambridge. Gatwick airport is not left out; every corner is busy.an ideal thing for backpackers to do is to rent or hire a car to move around. You can still get some within your budget.
There are many Promo Flights; backpacking adventurers should still be careful with those so-called promo flights. You’re advised to check their website and make contacts. There are many hidden charges to booking flights these days.
