Jun: Happy Chinese New Year from London

After introduce the whole day’s itinerary, we made our way to Greenwich Pier. It's around 6 min walk from our hotel. We arrived early and we did the group photo in Discover Greenwich Visitor Centre. At 10:45 am, we took a cruise from Greenwich Pier to Westminster Pier. If you are going into London from Greenwich Pier this is a great way to travel, you can see all the sights while travelling up the Thames, so much nicer than the underground, it’s comfortable and you can have a drink while travelling up.

We took the boat tour on the Sunday morning, started from Greenwich boating on River Thames was the most exciting experience of the day for me. We passed under Tower Bridge and many other bridges crossing the river, and we can saw Big Ben, Tower of London, London Eye, Tower Bridge, Westminster Abbey, those are the most famous attractions that we visited yesterday.

After the boat tour, we went to the most popular market called Camden market, I like to explore the market because there is best embodies of a city‘s local customs and practices. Camden market is the market which integration of several business areas together, you can find everything you want in there.

Bills is well situated within walking distance of Covent Garden. I really enjoyed the atmosphere there and we had a great afternoon tea time in this restaurant. It is a good place for us to experience England tea culture, which is quite different from that in my country China. I chose bramble berry tea, another favorite tea other classmates chose is English breakfast tea and fresh mint tea. We also have some cookies, cakes, and sandwiches. When you saw those photos, you must admire our London Field Trip.

We prepared a Chinese New Year song - Gung Hay Fat Choy and almost all Chinese knew that song.   Gung Hay is equivalent to congratulations or wishing you happiness, and Fat Choy, means sudden and huge increase on your property. So Gung Hay Fat Choy at best translation or the nearest interpretation into English would be: Wishing you Great Happiness and Prosperity! We shared this song to celebrate Chinese Spring Festival with our London Field Team.

Gung Hay Fat Choy for everybody in the coming new year!
