I am in my late 20s and is planning to travel to UK using Working Holiday visa this yr Dec/ next yr Jan'09.

I have some concerns below and need someone to advice:

1) Is London a good place to start with? If not, what would be the recommended place?
2) How's the standard living in UK? How much do we need to spend in a week?
3) I am looking into temp admin work.. any recommended employment agency?
4) Is Youth Hostel Association (YHA) is a good choice for accomodations? Any cheaper place that you can recommend?

Many thanks and greatly appreciate your advice... :D

Hi Seehui,

I moved to London about 3 years ago and had a lot of similar questions.

As a result of all my questions, and the difficulty it is in finding any good advice abotu London, My boyfriend and I put together this site

It has lots of good stuff about what its like to live in london, also suggesting things you should do before you actually move there - Like open a UK bank account.

Good luck - Hope it helps
