    Last week I have completed the first part of our trip – Paris in 5 Days – Itineraries & Highlights. I am so glad that the responses have been great so far. It seems like a lot of our readers are planning a trip to Europe this year. May I now present to you “London in 5 Days – Itineraries & Highlights”

    We enjoyed London a lot, mostly because of our friends who live here. My BFF Joanne and her boyfriend Guan are real foodies and they know their way around. Guan is a famous food blogger in London, he runs his own supper club at home and he recently contested in “The Taste”, a competitive reality television cooking show. So rest-assured we were so well-fed with some of the best cuisines in London. Read his blog here for some of the best recommendations in London, and even around Europe.
