Things to Do in Edinburgh, Scotland


I heard many good things about Edinburgh (Scotland) and finally got the chance to go there. If you have planed a trip to Edinburgh, there are few things you can't miss. 

1) Edinburgh Castle: Scotland is a place where the people there treasure history, lots of old buildings has been maintained nicely. If you want to understand Edinburg's history, the best place is to go to Edinburg Castle. It has so many museum inside to let you understand the king, the queen, the war or even the meaning behind the King's crown. Definitely worth visiting. 

2) Living in a Castle: There are some castles converted to hotels in Edinburg and the price is decent. Why not trying this one and a life time experience there and pretend to be a King/Queen for one night? 

3) Arthur's Seat: Arthur Seat is a place includes rock mountains. When you have a hike there, you can view most part of Edinburgh. The endless view is pretty amazing. The weather in Edinburg is quite rainy, be prepare to wear a hiking shoes and bring an umbrella when going uphill. 

4) Museum of Childhood: This museum displayed lots of old school toys. It just throws me back to my childhood and I lost count on how many toys I have ever owe in the museum.

Little tips: If you travel from London to Edinburgh, I would highly recommend you to go by train than on the plan. As you can enjoy the view during the train journey. Plus, the flight ticket is more expensive and waiting the flight takes time too. 

However, please be reminded to bring books, magazines for the train journey as it will be a four hours journey and you might not be able to enjoy the view the whole time. If you can't leave without electronic devices, bring a charger with you, the train can let you charge your i phone or i pad for free.
