London, the trillion-dollar city!

November 2017


It's hard not to get excited by London. It has everything you'd ever want, and then some...

 

London?s popularity is proven year after year by the ever growing number of visitors. Last year this number broke 19 million, almost 2 million more than Paris in 2016.
Over 20% of those numbers are believed to be on business trips (That?s a lot of business). But this comes as no surprise, because London accommodates every kind of traveller, from students to the high-flying banker.

London is the financial capital of the world, resulting in over 500 banks in the City. Most of them being foreign. There are more Japanese banks here than in Tokyo and more American banks than Manhattan.
Almost $3 trillion in foreign transactions are made in the City of London each day, and all because it?s at the centre of the world.
Yes really. Geographically London (GMT) is right in the middle of the financial world. You can trade with the east in the morning and with the west in the afternoon.
That?s all the major markets in one day. It all sounds so simple.

But London is not all about business. It?s arguably the most diverse and multicultural city in the world. It is believed that over 300 languages are spoken in London. English being the most popular followed by Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi, Cantonese, Mandarin and many, many more.
This is also reflected by the vast cuisine choices on offer.
Pretty much any ethnic cuisine you can think of is available in London. But you may be pleasantly surprised by the popularity of traditional British dishes like Fish & Chips, Pie & Mash, Roast Beef Diner, Shepherd?s Pie, Bread-and-Butter Pudding, Tea & Scones etc. Many top restaurants offer fantastic variations of these dishes that would please the most discerning palates.

It?s hard to talk about culture without mentioning museums and galleries, and London has no shortage of those either. The V&A, British Museum, Tate Modern, National Maritime Museum, National History Museum, The National Gallery, Design Museum, Science Museum, London Transport Museum?. The list goes on and on.
So much to see and do.
