Live the London life – with home comforts 

It’s understandable that you have reservations. It can take time to adapt to a new language, culture and climate; the last thing you want is to feel is unsafe and isolated. 

Fortunately, the London Metropolitan Police Service helps keep London among the safest large cities in the world, while the capital has a large Chinese community, with Chinatown in Leicester Square a popular destination for food lovers. There’s the authentic taste of home just a short tube ride away.
