It’s time to go to the Heathrow airport to return home. It was a great vacation and I’m glad that I can strike off London on my list of places to visit.
It rained early in the morning. Ben went out to get coffees from Starbucks and pastries from Tesco while I finished off the packing.
Here are some of the photos I snapped from the mini cab on the way to the airport. The fare was 70 pounds from city center to Terminal 5. Apparently, if you call the mini cab by yourself, it will be cheaper than the hotel calls it for you.
For the last dinner in London, Ben and I went for Vietnamese food. We had actually attempted to go for Vietnamese food on Kingsland earlier but we were lost due to getting down on the wrong subway station.
This time, after a better research, we found out that we were able to walk from our hotel to Kingsland where many Vietnamese restaurants are located. It is just a 25 minutes walk. Silly us on our first attempt.
We decided to have dinner at Song Que Vietnamese Restaurant as it is a popular one.
Song Que was full house when we arrived. And there was a line waiting for tables. Luckily we were not too far back in the line. The wait was at least 20 minutes.
The table setting are very tight.
Song Que served complementary prawn chips after we placed our order. A good start.
Their chopstick cover even has instructions on how to use chopstick. More on following page. Click here to continue reading
More London buildings…
Here are some of the photos we took of interesting buildings and objects on our last full day in London. Hope you will enjoy them.
The London Stock Exchange.
After exploring Borough Market, we still have a few hours for the day. So, we decided to explore another museum.
Museum of London showcases the account of London life from prehistoric times to the present day. Some of the exhibits I remembered were the plague, the great fire and modern London. No photography is allowed inside the museum.
The Lomo Wall; 65 meter in length is made up by almost 30,000 photographs of the London Olympic. More than 15,000 people from 32 countries submitted analogue pictures for this wall. More on following page. Click here to continue reading
