Tube x Zones x Map

If someone mentions London, other than all the royalties, Sherlock Holmes, and Big Ben, The Tube will be one of the word coming to your mind immediately. Of course, if you say “underground train”, other than Tokyo and New York, London Tube is definitely a brand by itself.

General (Mostly Money-Related) Tips and Tricks in Living in London/ United Kingdom

As a student in the UK, when we applied for Tier 4 UK VISA, it’s written that the expected monthly budget for London is about 1200 GBP. That’s also how much I get from my scholarship. So, how’s the reality? Is that amount enough? Those are valid questions, especially if you’re planning to bring your family with you. Believe it or not, if you’re planning your budget well, you can actually use that amount for a small family, with decent meal and everything. I myself have usually saved about half of my allowance each month (and use the saving for emergency conference travel fund, normal travel fund, and do leisure activities in between). Everyone have their own way to manage their own budget. Your life is your life, you’re the one who know it best. Learning from how other people manage theirs, make it suitable with yours. For a note, this is a compilation of things I’ve done and things people suggested to do to keep your budget low and living fuller (hopefully) in the UK.
