    What are some great cocktail bars in London?

    The Player in Soho The bar in Cocoon on Regent Street does an AMAZING Passion Fruit & Cinnamon cocktail which I've never found anywhere else. Lounge Lover in East London is also very good. Something a bit more hectic would be the Moose Bar opposite Selfridges, it has a club downstairs which is busy every night of the week. over 11 years ago

    Good areas in London to go out for drinks with friends?

    Agree with most of the points above, but also check out Clapham High Street / Clapham Junction. Lots of variety in Bars / Pubs & Clubs like The Whitehouse. Not as over crowded as central and not as weird as Shoreditch! I'd presonally avoid Leicester Square but thats because I'm not a tourist into cheesey R&B. Soho also has masses of quality places to check out which is central and easy to get around. over 11 years ago

    Where can I listening a good british rock live in London?

    There's lots of places in Camden that have live music every night along Camden High Road. You'll also find a place in Covent Garden called the Road House which does have covers bands on but also a cheesey disco type dance floor which is very touristy. over 11 years ago

    italian restaurant

    La Spezia at London Bridge, right at the turning onto the road into the station used to be good. There was another on Lambs Conduit Street in Holborn but the name slips my memory at the moment. over 11 years ago

    I want to travel on (ground-based) public transport all the way from Singapore to London. Any advice? How feasible is this?

    Feasable. I was planning a trip in the opposite direction to Thailand. Biggest issues are obviously cost and visa's. You either have to get up through Thailand and on up through China and along the Silk Route via Russia and Eastern Europe. The quicker route is riskier having to pass through Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran, also you would have to get a visa to cross Burma / Myanmar which is at times impossible but at best very difficult. email me if you have any specific questions. You could also check out the route taken by the London to Sydney Silk Route bus and try to work out the best route using that as a guide. over 11 years ago

    What is the best way to travel from India to Thailand?

    Myanmar is notoriously difficult for Visa's. Getting one to cross the country is the most diifficult according to my research last year. Although all of this changes day by day, which also means even if you do get a visa you might still have problems when you get to the border. If you can find a way north you may be able to pick up the tran-siberian railway and then go via China and down. about 11 years ago

    Can you give us a good drinking place and restaurantsin Holborn ?

    As far as drinking places you have LOADS round there. You're within 5 minutes walk of Covent Garden, there are some good bar's along Great Queen Street & Longacre. One of my favourite Thai restaurants in London is directly behind Hoborn station at the end of a passage way. Either turn left out of the station and take first passage on the left or turn right take the 2nd passage on the right. I think it's called Poo's Thai Brasserie and it is very quiet, with a small outside area that looks down towards Lincolns Inn Fields. Dow High Holborn you also have a couple of Hotel Bars, and a massive variety of food places from informal noodle bars to silver service within the hotel. about 11 years ago
