The United Kingdom (UK) is one of the most historically rich and culturally diverse places in the world. As a travel destination you will find an array of activities to do and iconic landmarks to see. For all the hikers among you one of the best places to experience the great outdoors in the UK is the Lake District National Park, where a patchwork of lakes, valleys and woodlands calls to every nature adventurer. Alternatively you can explore the dramatic coastlines of the South West, sample Somerset’s cider or simply experience the excitement of Premier League games in Liverpool and Manchester. Stonehenge is one of the most famous sites in the world, attracting large crowds to its mysterious circular setting of large standing stones. No visit would be complete without a trip to the capital, the fascinating city of London, where Buckingham Palace and Big Ben stand tall in structure and history.
If you’re planning to stick to the countryside then renting a car is feasible but in urban areas the country’s network of public transportation will serve you well, allowing you to move efficiently between the main towns and cities. Similar to Malaysia’s road system, drivers can easily navigate the UK’s right-hand drive cars on the left hand side of the road. You’ll be delighted to know that entrance to public museums is free and food is cheaper during lunch specials offered by most restaurants, which you will want to make the most of because eating out in the UK is a lot more expensive than the likes of Asia. For the best deals and most authentic British experience, seek out low-priced filling meals in the cosy atmosphere of a local pub. If you’re visiting during winter or autumn you will be grateful to have a break from the cooler temperatures of outside by hiding away in these atmospheric establishments.
