I really love travelling. I like seeing new places and eating new cuisines but I can never call myself as someone who is equipped with the right skills to travel. I still need my GPS to get around Edmonton and I've been here for 2 years now. I still don't know what the local stores are, the good places to eat at, or simply where to go to have fun.
It's just a great thing that I've recently found this neat little website called qype.co.uk. It's a great website to check out if you want to know where the local people go for fun. Sure you can always check out other reviews from travel magazines and such but nothing beats having to know the facts straight from the people who weren't paid or bribed by establishments to write good reviews.
For example, if you want to eat at an authentic English Restaurants , don't go to the highly commercialized restaurants because they charge you a fortune and the atmosphere and the food won't be the same. If you want to experience London as how it is seen by it's local people then you should just enter the keywords Restaurants London and read about the personal reviews of people who frequent those restaurants. Those reviews weren't sponsored or paid in any way so you'll be getting unbiased and honest reviews.
And here's a bit of a trivia for you guys. Pubs in London isn't just a place to get beer. Pubs, or Public House, is actually a place to eat and also a place to socialize with the community so if you want to know the local people and get to know more about their culture then searching for Pubs London to find the pubs which has a great historical importance and which is a center of the community.
