My London Experience in Pictures

It was, for the first time in my longest distance travel in life, I flew to London of the United Kingdom. From Phnom Penh airport, formerly Pochentong airport, I took a flight to Bangkok, and transited at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, and then reached Heathrow airport of London. For the first time to fly, I traveled to one of the greatest cities. Months later I still feel it was a dream, an unforgetable unique travel experience I ever had. I stayed four nights in the city, just two weeks before the new year eve.

Some selective photo I shot in London in December 2005 with my SRL Nikon F75.

  3. thanks for the pictures, very beautiful, have never been to London.


  4. heard that the hotel is very expensive, isn’t it?

    who knows?

  5. Brings back nice memories

  6. >> You should make it. And don’t forget to share your travel experience with us.

    >> It is worth to visit the city. I like it much as I have just realized that it is the world’s most largest media city.

    >> My UK visa did not allow me to travel to the Netherlands or Germany. That’s strange for me. What is EU?

    >> I stayed at hotel for two nights, and two more at the Oxford Street youth hostel.

    >> It is good to recollect the beautiful past time.

  7. Thanks for ur great pictures.
