Full update on the guide for expatriates in London
2012 had a big start as we have fully updated our most popular guide: London (and England). With 185 pages (PDF) of information you will read the most complete guide to prepare your expatriation to England and the UK capital.
London has been a destination for almost as long as it's been a city. It has attracted visitors, expats, and business from every continent with it's attractions, people, opportunities, and vibrant atmosphere. It is within the city that you can hear "the Queen's English", the rhymes of cockney, and even the sing-songy accents of Indian English. The city is a combination of everything you know about England and on the edge of what is happening around the world. It is both a city of history, and a city of tomorrow. (More)

The colonial world shown in the film, occupied by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman is becoming a cosmopolitan city. The largest city, it is the industrial and economic heart of Morocco. Formerly an undesirable entry point into Morocco on the way to Rabat, Marrakesh, or Fez, the city is refurbishing its charm as it become an international destination for travelers and expats. (More)
