Christmas in Edinburgh

As the song goes, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! When I saw bus drivers in Christmas sweaters and the Christmas tree set up in the Business School, I knew Christmas was on its way. There is so much to do during Christmas in Edinburgh – here are some of the things that I would recommend.

Dress like a British girl

From an early age, I have been obsessed with British movies and TV shows. James Bond, Downton Abbey and Kingsman are the perfect example of the traditional British style – the aroma of coffee, the hat on the head and the umbrella in the hand are what spring to mind when I picture a British gentleman. Next, I would like to introduce you to three brands that have stolen British’s heart.

Bon Appetit in Edinburgh

Back in China, we have various types of cooking styles and different seasonings. Many people have joked that the best food in the UK is the food from other countries. Although this is untrue, there are many nice restaurants in Edinburgh that serve authentic food from countries like Mexico, India and Italy. After spending more than a month in Edinburgh, I have discovered several ways to satisfy your appetite perfectly.

Making friends in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a dream city for many people, and so it attracts people from all over the world, enjoying incredible diversity. Consequently, in Edinburgh, I have been able to meet people from different countries and regions, such as Europe, South Africa and the United States. It is definitely something that is not so easily done in China. I feel very lucky to meet these intelligent, open-minded and inclusive people.
