When in London: See Big Ben at Night


London is probably one of the best cities in the world that I have ever set foot on.  Not that I’m biased.  So maybe there’s a reason why it’s requiring a separate visa for non-Europeans.  It is so beautiful that no matter what the season is and may it be rainy or gloomy, London will always be posh and picture perfect.  Transportation is so easy and all the popular landmarks are very near each other.  You can even tour London in a day if you’re that pressed for time.

Oyster Card: you can use it anywhere
Group Save: if you’re traveling with groups of 3-9 adults: 1/3 or rail fares
Apple Pay: works the same as Oyster Card
