London Tops The List Of Most Popular Destination Once Again!
London is all set to claim the crown as the most visited international destination once again. Are you wondering what is it that is distracting holidaymakers and party-lovers across the globe from making other plans? Well, London has a lot to offer this season and the next year as well.
The Royal Wedding Weekend, which follows close on the heels of the Easter Weekend, has bestowed the residents of the United Kingdom with the unprecedented joy of two consecutive long weekends! Millions are making use of this rare opportunity to enjoy a fantastic 11-day holiday in London itself or in neighbouring countries such as France. The excitement of a new Royal Couple will hardly have settled down, before it will be time for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of the Queen’s coronation and then the 2012 London Olympics.
All businesses are joining in the celebrations with souvenirs, holidays, special screening sessions of the wedding, garden parties and more. London Eye, one of London’s most popular and spectacular attractions, is giving away free tickets to all couples (only married couples) named William and Catherine, Will and Kate or any of their short names for the week following the weekend. Of course, they need to have their wedding certificate, for proof. XOYO and hundreds of pubs across the nation are enjoying the special privilege of having their business hours extended by over an hour or more, so party-lovers can rock through the night and celebrate the wedding.
With so much going on, it is no wonder that almost all London hotels are facing full bookings and holidaymakers are searching for alternative accommodation options. At a time like this, many seasoned travellers are opting to and advising others as well to rent holiday apartments in London. Holiday apartments in London are not just any alternative accommodations – they are someone’s homes, rented for the period they are away. Not only are they affordable, they allow you to experience the city and live life the way the actual owner does.
With a holiday apartment in London as your base, not only can you be in the line of procession, right next to hundreds of other Londoners waving to the Royal couple, but participate in street parties and watch the wedding live right from the comfort of your home. Enjoy a Royal Wedding Walk that takes you through the same spots as the Royal couple frequented and party through the night at the same nightclubs.
While thousands will be descending upon London for the Royal Wedding Weekend, many Londoners will be seeking to escape the crowds and will be travelling out of the country to Paris and other tourist spots of France such as Cannes and Nice along Cote d’Azur. With airfares going crazily high, many are opting to travel by Eurostar or car and are enjoying great savings with holiday apartments in Paris or indulging themselves with luxurious French villas along the Cote d’Azur.
Now the question arises, what are you doing during the Royal Wedding Weekend? Are you going to enjoy a getaway in a Paris holiday apartment or are you going to be a Royal guest and head to a London holiday apartment?
