The British capital is packed with variety and entertainment – its historic grandeur is unmatched, and its nightlife is second to none. London’s dynamism can be felt on every street corner. And yet, it’s all reassuringly familiar.
For all its novelty, there is also a lot of ‘home’ in London to make you feel at ease. At every third corner shop, you’ll be greeted by a sari-clad proprietress who’ll practice her slightly rusty Hindi on you. And the fact that curry is considered Britain’s national dish should serve as an indication of the wide availability of Indian food. London is great for first-time visitors, and anyone who speaks English should have no trouble communicating with the locals. The public transport is efficient, just about every dietary requirement is catered to, and you’ll never be short of sights to see or shows to watch.
