    I can,t figure out why the wanton mee and roast duck rice are so delicious in London, is it the weather, environment,the Hongkie chef or the ingredient ?

      I would say its their chef (from HK) and the access to good quality ingredients..

      but the claim of their roast ducks are the best in the world, def not true haha. the person who said that obviously never came to Malaysia (or worse still, never tried the roast ducks in Beijing and HK before)

      hi steven.. I traveled on my own so here is a rough breakdown:

      return plane tix via Emirates: RM3050
      Eurail (train to go around Europe for 1 month): RM3200-3500
      Accommodation, food and etc (entrance fee to places and such) RM6000-7000

      so in total it was around RM13k like that. do know that I only stayed in hostels, and ate very very cheap foods most of the time

    Nice post and pictures! Mind if I asked exactly how much to pay to get into Tower of London? It holds a lot of historical events and tragedies including beheadings of royalties like Anne Boleyn. Maybe that’s why it’s so killer expensive.

    Nice post! But talking about expensive entrance fees, any estimation on how “expensive” are they? Given the chance i would want to visit London as well :)

      it’s 17 pounds per pax.. but if you are serious about visiting the places in London.. a London Pass would be better because it gives you free admission to many places including this Tower of London, as well as free use of the public transport

      I wanted to try but in the end didn’t lol. It’s quite a regret for me now anyway. Pubs were charging 6-7pounds per portion

    vkeong, you traveled alone and it costs RM13k? As in not relying on relatives who’s living there, or best buddies living in UK? Plus, everything was done by online on your own or through the tour package Free & Easy? I’m planning for a holiday some time sooner. Appreciate your quick reply :)

      hi M@Y,

      To answer your question.. I traveled with my gf actually, and it cost me RM13k for myself only. We did not rely on anyone we knew, the flight tickets, train tickets, accommodation, food and daily activities were planned by ourselves. Or you can say it’s free and easy.

      Just for your information, the hostels we stayed were booked on hostelbookers.com and typically one night’s stay is 17-20 Euros for a dorm room (shared with at least 4 people) while private ones are totally out of our budget. Food would be around 10-15 Euros and honestly we had to tie our stomach for most of the time. Better get an accommodation that provides breakfast, it saves you a lot, really

    Europe beefs and bacon, eggs and pasta should be really delicious! Nice coverage and of course the Chinatown’s food in every corners of the world is quite satisfying. I do want to have a try at EU and elsewhere since I’ve ventured to Perth,Korea but that was when I was pretty young. So hopefully to grab some cheap-n-run food shots! Ahahaha.

        Its actually a cast of the actual skeleton which is in germany if I recall correctly. Most museums network and collaborate on research so they actually make lots of cast for each other. But its still very old and valuable.

      I don’t think I am fit to give any advice.. I can hardly remember the details too. I feel it is best you use their website to plan your trip..

    A great thing to do when in London is to go on a Rippervision Jack the ripper tour. They are fantastic, I learnt so much that I never knew about Jack the Ripper.
