There is a shopping centre called Whiteleys. Whiteleys was a first department store in London before it converted into a shopping centre. It has been built since 1863. You don’t need to go to Oxford Street to shopping because this shopping centre already provide many things such as cinema, Topshop, HMV, Marks & Spencer, GAP, H&M, French Connection, Accessorize, Muji, La Senza, Zara and many more.
From Paddington, we took Circle/District line (TUBE) to Bayswater tube station. It cost us about £1.80 per person with Oyster Card. Without the Oyster Card the fare will be £4.00 per journey within Zone 1. You will save more with Oyster Card!
We have stayed at Hyde Park Suites for a week. It is located at Inverness Terrace, just a few meters away from Bayswater station. Large duplex apartment room cost us about £770.00 (RM37, 654) for 7 nights. This room is suitable for five adults and ideal for a family vacation. This room has big balcony and mini-kitchen. We cut our expenses by cook our own foods. We bought the frozen foods from Tesco and also Marks & Spencer. The quality of this apartment is below the par from our expectation because the furniture is not well-maintained, poor security system and does not have enough lighting. The bathroom is also very small. I chose this apartment because it is located in the strategic location.
Not far from Hyde Park Suites, there is Malaysia Hall. You can meet many travelers and students from Malaysia gathered here. It has canteen, hall, surau and hostel. You can get Malaysian foods from the canteen. The foods price is a bit higher than local foods.
