How much would you say it costs per month to live in London? Rent/Food/Transport?

Depends on where you live etc.. Food is pretty much the same as it was back in Sweden. If you're in the States it's probably cheaper there. When it comes to the rent, it depends on where you live and what zone. My friends used to rent a room(!!) in West Kensington which is in zone 2, and they paid £425 each/month. I found a place in Hounslow West for £350/month and my room is bigger than the one they shared.
Transport is from £25+/week, and once again it depends on where you live.
For me it's somewhere around £450-500/month for Rent/Food/Transport.

Yes. This would be a thread win. But London would be one of the most expensive places to live in the world, if not the most expensive.

I didn't get to read every response in this thread but here's a few things I learned while traveling abroad and gutting through london town.

What I didn't like about London:
Streets is watching son, real talk. There are cameras everywhere, it's the most watched city in the world. I'm not talking 1 camera on a street, I'm talking 4-7 cameras in 1 hallway of the tube. I don't know why anyone would need 7 cameras facing 1 hall way, but they got it there.

Food is ok, but not by American standards aka fatmerica. You not finding a Kennedy Fried Chicken @ 4am but there are choices, you'll have to adjust.

Huge gay population, much more flamboyant then those of the sexual preference here in the USA.

The weather, London Fog - London Rain, keep that goretex close to your vest, it rains like no other.


What I did like about London:
FASHION FASHION FASHION - Some very fashionable people with some very very fashionable labels. Bad part, the pricetag associated with it.

Metro - just like the NYC Subway, it'll get you around no question.

Cabs have speaks and microphones to talk to the cabbie without screaming through a glass window, bad part drivers be skeemin can listen in to anything you say.

Overall, I like the city of London, but I wouldn't sacrifice it for the climate change. That is a very big deciding factor for me as my surrounding environment really dictates my mood, dark and dreary makes me depressed if it's like that 95% of the year.

It was my first meal in london no lie I was just making an analogy in reference to American fast food availability to be prevalent in a foreign country such that those expectations wouldn't be conceived.

I remember it distinctly actually, Kings Cross on Farringdon

-edit-
oh and at the time of writing my original post, i referenced 'kennedy' not 'kentucky'

just because you ate at an expensive crappy restaurant meant for dumb tourists with extra cash doesnt mean all of Paris is expensive. I would consider Bloomberg Businessweek a reliable source too.

Pretty much.

Yeah, the weather is ok. Not really tripping about it since I knew there was nothing to get excited about.

This list is from 10 days ago, from wealth management group UBS AG. It's got New York at #6 and London at #10.

You should stop reading lists and start travelling.
