The more I come here, the more I love it...it eats up most of my money, yes, with about GBP 8 per day for tube and bus day passes, and the journey itself...my first trip here was in 2009, along with the rest of the European countries i covered; Italy, Spain and France. We had only 2 days to spend here, so we ran through the most important parts of London; of course Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Harrods for those green plastic bags, Oxford etc...I went back 3 times in 2011, in Oct, Nov and Dec...and continued doing so in Jan...phew...Latest trip was with sis...I'd recommend staying at bayswater area, since they have plenty of Halal foods around, highly recommends Noodle Oodle, Malaysian Hall Mixed Rice, Subway Halal here and few Indian restaurants...There are also many many hostels and hotels around this area, even as cheap as GBP 8.50 per nite! Just google for cheap hostel in Bayswater, you'll find them...I'd of course recommend The Original Tour for the hop on hop off service at GBP 23, with additional cruise to Greenwich for free...For winter, tickets are valid for 2 days...But if you're used to taking the tube like I am by now, its much faster, more flexible and cheaper to do so...

I love the tube..it gets me everywhere in London...

I love Camden market...awesome nick nacks you could find plus easy Halal find; KFC, food court in the Stables Market...

I love all the big places of London, can never get tired of Big Ben, Tower Bridge, National Gallery...

I love Harrods for its Food Halls and its stuffs ONLY during Boxing Day :p
