I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: London is one of my favorite cities in the world. I love the history. I love the culture. I love the energy...
It’s no secret, though, that London is one of the most expensive cities in the world. Before booking your itinerary, it’s smart to look for ways to save.

The best sightseeing passes help you enjoy more for less, and London has a few options worth considering. By packaging more than 70 of the city’s top attractions at a reduced rate, the London Explorer Pass by Go City helps you save money in London.
But is Go City’s London Explorer Pass worth it? Let’s find out!...

Greenwich might just be one of the best areas in London to visit! Of course, we’re a little bit biased but there’s a heap of the best things to do in Greenwich that are dotted all across the neighbourhood, which you really can’t miss.

Being one of the three Royal Boroughs in London (alongside Chelsea and Kensington and Kingston-Upon-Thames), it’s made quite a name for itself for its centuries of history, some of the most iconic London palaces and London markets.

Plus, it’s only a stone’s throw from the very centre of London so what’s not to love!

Now, for me, the thing that makes Greenwich so great (after all the historical spots) is that it’s totally walkable and really easy to stroll around in a day or two. This is great if you fancy seeing a different side of London, especially as it’s so different from other areas like Camden or Covent Garden.

With thousands of years of history, world-class museums and attractions, every kind of food imaginable, and a never-ending list of things to do, it's no wonder that London is one of the most popular cities to visit in the world.

London is a world-class city but It’s also one of the most expensive cities in the world. Luckily, hostels are reasonably affordable (at least for a major city) and there are plenty of great free museums. However, the cost of attractions and food prices will put a major dent in your budget.

In this London travel price guide, we’ll outline the estimated travel expenses for food, accommodation, attractions, alcohol, and other things that you’ll experience so you can better budget your trip to London...

London is one of the most-visited cities in the world. I myself have been to London more than a dozen times, and have cumulatively spent months in the UK capital.

What I love about London is probably what a lot of other people love about it, too: the fact that London is dynamic. It's full of history but also modernity...

And while I enjoy discovering new things to do and see in London on each trip, there's no denying that the city's top attractions are popular for good reason...

Melbourne – a hip, trendy, and vibrant Australian city brimming with culture. Its neighbourhoods have personalities of their own, ranging from bohemian quarters with amazing restaurants and fashion boutiques, to edgy, artsy areas that are home to more tattoo shops than a city could possibly need. It’s impossible to truly understand the cultural centre that is Melbourne without actually living there. And it’s equally as difficult to explore it as a visitor.

I’ve been to Melbourne 4 times. Each time, discover a whole new side of the incredibly complicated and fascinating city that has topped the charts of the World’s Most Liveable Cities. But despite my frequent visits, I couldn’t possibly try to share the best that this city has to offer without some local help. Luckily, a few of my friends and locals were eager to share their tips and recommendations for things to do in Melbourne.
