I went on an incredible, self-made Christmas Walking Tour in London last Friday night and I want to share it with you. In this itinerary, you’ll see some of the most popular street Christmas lights and Christmas Markets around the city. Just a bit of a warning though, I do love walking (as I haven’t had a chance to walk this much in the Middle East) and the distance I covered in this walking tour might

I really am making the most out of my first Christmas in London. After visiting Christmas in Leicester Square, I headed straight away to the Southbank Centre Winter Festival to see what they have in store for me. But before that, I passed by the Strand which had its own Christmas light decorations as well. I didn’t stay long at the Strand though as it wasn’t as elaborate as Oxford Street or Bond Street

CHRISTMAS IN LEICESTER SQUARE, LONDON - PinayFlyingHigh.com
When was the first time you’ve been to a Christmas market? My answer is last Friday at the Christmas in Leicester Square Christmas Market. It’s really funny how I’ve sold so many Christmas holiday packages when I was a travel agent in Dubai and yet, I’ve never been to one. That is, until last Friday. Leicester Square was transformed to a Christmas wonderland filled with stalls for food, han

After visiting Bond Street Christmas Lights, my next stop was to see the fabulous Carnaby Street Christmas Lights which took me around 15 minutes to reach by foot. I passed by the beautiful Liberty London on my way there and saw the wonderful Nutcracker-themed shop displays. Carnaby Street in Soho is easy to find specially with all the signage leading to it. This year, the inspiration for Carnaby’s Christmas lig

Christmas In London | Bond Street Christmas Lights

BOND ST LONDON CHRISTMAS LIGHTS - PinayFlyingHigh.com
After getting all smitten by the Christmas lights at the Oxford Street, I next went to see the Bond Street Christmas lights which was just as beautiful. I think because Bond Street is not as wide as Oxford street, it felt much cozier and not as crazy. I always had to navigate through the crowd and vehicles while at Oxford Street but never had that much of problem while I was exploring Bond Street. Bond street is a

OXFORD STREET CHRISTMAS LIGHTS, London - PinayFlyingHigh.com
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, at least for me. If you’ve been following my blog, you’d know how Christmas-deprived I was when I was living in the Middle East and how this ultimately made my obsession on this season even more. Now that I’m living in London, I’m not going to let this year pass without making the most of my first Christmas out of the Middle East for the first
