Visiting London for the first time? This great and old city is a popular tourist destination because of its diverse offerings. If you are looking for some of the most popular places in the city, here is our short list:
Brick Lane was made famous by the book and film adaption that carries the same title. The same as it is in the book, Brick Lane is the heart of London’s Bangladeshi community that features road signs in both English and Bengali. They also offer a variety of curry restaurants to eat something spicy.
If you love spicy food, this is the perfect location for you, and you can also visit authentic South Asian desserts if you are craving for something sweet.
There is Chinatown in every country, and the city of London is no exemption. London’s Chinatown is located around Gerrard Street and is in between Soho and Leicester Square. It is not that difficult to find this vibrant neighbourhood because of its eye-catching red arches and Chinese lanterns.
Chinatown offers authentic Asian restaurants, supermarkets, bars, and the likes. Try the HK Diner if you love roast duck and bubble tea.
It is not hard to miss Piccadilly Circus, which is a square filled with bright lights and big electronic screens. It has been a busy London spot since the 17th century. Today, Piccadilly Circus is still in the heart of the West End and provides easy access to some of the city’s biggest nightclubs and theatres.
If you want to experience one of the world’s top island nations, then a visit to the Maldives is your way to go. Here are some of the great things you can do here:
Have a Private Picnic
Relax and enjoy a day at Amilla Fushi and have a pre-ordered picnic full of Maldivian’s best such as cheeses, lobster and don’t forget a bottle of champagne. Enjoying a sandbank picnic for a day will have you appreciate the surrounding turquoise hues of water and its pristine, white sand.
Snorkelling and Diving
The Maldives offers the best snorkelling and diving activities in the world. Enjoy the spectacular underwater scenery with their usual schools of colourful tropical fish, tortoises, reef sharks, stingrays, and whales. Visit Hanfaru bay which is the largest feeding station in the world and is also protected by Unesco and see marine life up close.
For the ultimate relaxation experience try the underwater spa at Per Aquum Huvafen Fushi. Enjoy a day couture facials, cold ice, hot rocks, champagne and truffles meant for your body while having the treatment surrounded by glass walls. Stare out into the beautiful ocean and enjoy the marine life surrounding you.
The Maldives offer high-end luxury as most resorts want to give their guests the royal treatment. But the Maldives is also rich in culture and heritage which you can also experience. You can also visit Thulhaadhoo for the arts and crafts.
Enjoy the Party
If you want to party up while still enjoying the beach go to Finolhu in Baa where party events hosted by internationally-acclaimed DJs can be found. You can also find the Fish and Crab Shack where soft crab tacos are served.
Are you searching for good accommodation for your next travel? Your choice of place will mostly depend on your budget, destination, style and comfort levels, number of companions, and interests.
It is not always about finding it cheap. Keep in mind that getting 15% off a room you do not want is always better than a room with a regular that you want. Whether you are travelling solo, as a couple, or as a family your choice will depend on your needs.
Here are some travel tips to finding the right accommodation:
Find the right location
Always think of the right location since it is never practical to get a cheap place where you need to travel more just to get to the beach or the park. You will have to pay more on transportation if you do. As a solution, stay close to where your chosen destination is. If you want to do surfing, search for a hotel that is near the beach. Stay in a central area that is close to local attractions and public transport so you can save your time and money.
Consider a hostel
Hostels these days are not just dorm rooms for backpackers because the quality and service are getting better these days. If you are going to travel to the USA, hostels may not be a good option for you. But in places such as France, the United Kingdom, and Thailand you can find quality private and family rooms that are way better than hotels.
