Chinatown - London

Last Thursday I met up with my friend Laura in London and we had a walk around Chinatown.  The reason for his visit was to get some inspiration to add a subtle asian/oriental touch to the wedding invites or decorations for Laura's wedding later this year.   We only found a few shops as most of Chinatown seems to be Chinese restaurants or supermarkets.  We came away with a few ideas and also stopped off for a very tasty chinese lunch. 

Laura is from the UK but currently lives in Singapore and you can follow her blog - Expat Adventures in Singapore - http://expatadventuresinsingapore.blogspot.com/


  1. It was a lovely day Lynne, thanks for suggesting it!

  2. Sounds like a lovely time out for you and Laura. I still miss Hong Kong and its Chinese-ness. Maybe I should venture for Chinatown one day - you wouldn't think it but I've never been there!
