London - Whole World In One Town
Friday, 16 of October of 2015
People can be divided into two groups. Those who hate London. And those who absolutely love it. Whether you are in the first or the second group you might have never look at London from that perspective: London is like the whole world squeezed in a town. You don’t have to pack your luggage, save money for months, apply for a visa and get some additional vaccinations to travel the world as everything that the world has to offer you can find in this city jungle. Don’t believe me? Just keep reading!
Let’s go to NYC!
To get to New York City you don’t need to fly through 5 times zone but simply take Jubilee Line to Canary Wharf. There, you will find yourself surrounded by huge glass skyscrapers and if you go there on weekdays you have a big chance to fulfil Hollywood movie scenario and bump into a smart guy in a well-cut suit and with a leather briefcase.
If tropical forest is on your “things to see” list you should definitely visit Kew, Royal Botanic Gardens. The variety of plants, trees, bushes, flowers, rhizomes, creepers, climbers will awake you primal instinct. So if you hear the call of nature and you want to feel like Tarzan you should visit the Kew Gardens.
Paris and Moulin Rouge is in Cirque le Soir

There is always something they surprise you with. If you want to check out the magic of this place sign up to Lux Guestlist for Cirque le Soir or book a VIP table at: (+44)77 691 691 01.
Tokyo drift? Well, not exactly... but definitely a spirit of Asia
If you yearn to know how it feels to be in Japan you should try to get into a tube in Oxford Circus station during the rush hour. Maybe there is no professional train pushers or subway packers, like it is in Tokyo, but you can tell that some people do have years of experience in pushing, squeezing and packing.

A little romance in Venice
London has its own Little Venice! Just next to the Warwick Avenue tube station there is a whole network of little, charming canals. Especially during Autumn when trees change their colours and it’s a cuddle weather time (SO NOW!) this area attracts couples and those who need a little romance in their lives.
