Edinburgh New Town

After quickly snapping shots of the Scottish Parliament and the Palace of Holyroodhouse at the end of the Royal Mile, we made our way to the New Town. Crossing the Waverly Bridge, we saw a colourful row of open top double decker buses lining up to pick up passengers for a city tour.

The New Town is generally similar to most larger city centres in the UK, with lots of stores for shopaholics to spend their money in.

There are also lots of pubs and restaurants. This is one of them.

There's even a Hard Rock Cafe here.

After a while, we decided to head back to the hotel as it was simply too cold. On our way back, the Edinburgh Castle was in full view, sitting majestically atop the castle rock.

We also saw a man in kilt, playing a bagpipe for charity.

That ended our sightseeing for the day. I wish the weather will be friendlier the next time we are in Edinburgh.
