My first travel to London

Hong Kong and London had had a very special connection. One was the crown’s colony in the East for over 150 years; and London is still the top capital in the world and also the heart of the United Kingdom. I picked London as my first destination to travel in Europe, because of the special relationship of Hong Kong and Britain.

It’s sooooo good that the weather was awesome when I was in London in June 2015. My friend said that this should be the best timing to visit the capital.

London is a real, grand and ancient capital of the British Empire that was governing over 25% of territory in the world and crafting a civilized model for the modern mankind. Old building built in 19th century were everywhere in the city, they are not standing alone in a street corner, but an entire district or a block. No can see in Hong Kong and China, as the mass think that the old things should be discarded and which is an obstacle against development.
