1. London Knows How to Embrace Expats

Sure, it’s not 100% easy, and of course there is no possibility of absolutely zero discrimination in any city, but London is one step ahead of the game on welcoming people from around the world.

As I took a jog around Shoreditch, home to an American friend living in London, the melange of cultures was so clear. If not the most international city in the world, London is one of the top, offering opportunity to a vastly diverse global community.

2. London Nails Public Transit

When the tube breaks down, all hell breaks loose in London. People literally are excused from coming to work if there is a tube strike.

However, the London subways and train system are inarguably one of the most effective, running often and with numerous stops. Although it does get a bit crowded, the trains will get you from Point A to Point B in a busy city.

3. London Appreciates Great Weather

London boasts gorgeous parks that are perfect for picnics! I went on amazing picnics both times I’ve visited London.

Greenwich Park, Hyde Park, Regent’s Park — pick a park, any park. There are so many! As a sucker for sunshine, there is nothing lovelier than a bunch of people in a good mood because of lovely weather.

4. London Rocks International Cuisine

Indian food in London is like Mexican food in California. Italian food in London is like Mexican food in California. Pretty much all food in London (except for Mexican food) is like Mexican food in California.

Indulge!

Where to Stay in London

I become a bit homesick sometimes traveling full-time, so an English speaking country where I am able to ask for directions when lost seems like an oasis. Therefore, I opted to stay in an apartment during my stay in London so I could truly feel at home.

For luxury apartments with the full amenities of a hotel, check out Cheval Three Quays Residences.

For smart apartment booking, City Relay via FG Property Management is a great place to start.

    Superb guide, Southbank Centre Food Market is one of the biggest food markets in London. There are a lot of restaurants and events that tourists can enjoy in #SouthbankCentre as well as near it. If you are visiting London for the first time then you should see this market once.

    Brilliant article. I would also add that there is so much to do in London, so you’ll never get bored. This includes galleries, museums, craft / antiques / food markets, music festivals, shopping etc, there is lots to do for people of all ages and interests.
