    MonotoniTV 1 тиждень тому I noticed this phenomenon of watching something like this too. For example all the time since English native is talking about German or Germany most of the viewers are German. It's probably because the video kind of regards yourself and you want to hear something nice about your hometown so you feel complimented

  • magnus nilsson
    magnus nilsson 5 місяців тому (змінено) Here are some more advices. For a comfortable stay, avoid the "charming" hotels in bayswater! There are nicer hotels for not that much more money. Check what ratings other travellers gives the hotels. And getting around is sometimes faster if you walk, for example between leiceter and covent garden. Don't be afraid to explore areas where you haven't been before. Last time i stayed in islington, which have a small-town feel to it but with lots of chops and pubs.
  • Ian moseley
    Ian moseley 3 місяці тому magnus nilsson Leicester Square, not leiceter - where there is a street, road, square or similar in the name then always include it.

  • Anita Barnett
    Anita Barnett 4 місяці тому (змінено) I live in London and I came across this video in passing. Here are some pointers from a person who lives in London following on from points above: SAFETY – London is relatively safe but do take all the usual precautions typical for big cities. It is also full of pickpockets especially in touristy areas. In less touristy areas this is less of a thing. Going to less touristy areas is not always dangerous at night, for instance I live in Chiswick which is a leafy suburb in London and it is relatively safe at night. I suggest researching different places before you visit as London is a very large and diverse city. For emergency services dial 999 or 112. WEATHER – London is known for its unpredictable weather. Always check the weather before leaving your hotel and don’t forget the umbrella. The hottest month: August | The coldest month: usually January. Check the forecast before travelling. WHERE TO STAY – The average hotel room: ∼150 GBP per night. Book your stay close to the underground. Stay here. Oxford Street, City of London, Covent Garden, Camden Town, Kensington, Soho, etc. The above places are very expensive to stay in. It is better to find cheaper places outside of Zone 1 with good tube access. POWER PLUGS – You need special UK power adaptor. TRANSPORTATION - GETTING AROUND THE CITY: You can also use contactless bank cards (i.e. VISA, Mastercard, Maestro or American Express cards), which cost the same amount as Oyster without having the additional expense of purchasing an Oyster Card. A cheaper alternative to tourist boat cruises on the Thames is to go on boats that are within the Transport for London/Oyster card system LINES/QUEUE –London is usually a crowded place you can expect lines/queues everywhere in touristy areas. Please respect the queue. Do not push in. You can check online for fast pass tickets for busy attractions. FOOD – It is great to try eating in less touristy areas, there are many food choices in London. BARS AND PUBS CLOSE EARLY – You can check closing times of bars online to avoid disappointment. Bars/Clubs/Restaurants open later on Friday's and Saturday's My best advice is to research before arriving in London. Hope this helps :)
