If a stranger were to ask me a question "When's the best time to visit London", I'll say it's June! Despite being the most expensive month to travel (summer), there's a few factors that would make you would want to visit London. Or Europe for all that matter. Here's a few why you should visit London in June.
First - Perfect weather: For those who don't know, London is famous for it's confuse weather condition. Most of the time it either rains or it rains. Yes it rains a lot here but it rarely rains cats and dogs like in Malaysia. sometimes it's either drizzle or a heavy rains that lasted only for a few seconds. But in June, although sometimes it rains but you got to experience one of the most beautiful summer weather. Not to hot not to cool. And if you're lucky, it's perfect.
Second - Various Event: One of the things I look forward in June is the events held. Because London is rich with cultures and various backgrounds, you could also find various events ranging from food festivals, arts exhibitions, theatres, concerts, fashion shows, Events catered for families, lovers, animals, girls and even gays and lesbians. There's also various sports events like hot air balloons, cycling for the environments, sailings etc. All these events are usually a full house due to the summer weather. More on events check out TimeOut.
Third - Shopping: Although the biggest shopping sales event like The boxing day are held in December, I personally loves shopping in summer sale. A reason being because of the summer collections they have in store. Summer is the time we'll see colourful clothes and a happy smile on girls. I also notice that I spent a lot in summer. I like. But Fairuz doesn't like.
Forth - Days are longer: This is perfect for tourists. The peak summer daylight in London usually lasted approximately from 4.30am until late 9.30pm. Thats 17 hours of daylight. You can take your time touring and sightseeing. Isn't that nice? Even if you wake up at 12pm, you still got 9 hours left. For me it gets better because it isn't scary to come home late at night.
Fifth - You can travel light: Forget those bulky, ugly and colourless winter jacket that makes you look fat. Not only it makes your luggage heavy but it took you 3 minutes take off that those mafla, jacket, gloves and beanie before you can sit down to have a cuppa at Starbucks. And imagine when you're going shopping and you wanted to try out on something. Thank god for husband to hold on to our handbag and jacket/mafla/gloves/beanie.
Sixth - It's a pretty sight: It really is. I love looking at women and girls that dress prettily in summer. Fairuz loves it too. Who am I kid, of course he does. They are all smiling and cheering and greeting everybody.
Seventh - What?! Ok I'm going to have to stop here. Top of my head I think that's about it for now.
There's a lot of other things that you would like about London. But these are things why you should come in the month of June. Some might think that it's annoying to travel in summer because everything seems full and there's a sea of people but it sure is an experience you guys should try. You'll love it. I promise.
