Day 3 - Explore Inner Edinburgh

Breakfast at our temporary home @ Edinburgh and all food stuffs were purchased from TESCO the night before.

We visited a church and the Scottish Parliament House at the vicinity of Hollyrood and was surprised that the Debating Chamber is opened to public. I was impressed with the building and thank to the Guide for her lovely introduction of this wonderful Scottish Parliament House.

Lunch with no rice but marshed potato and chips, that is what you likely to eat in this land of United Kingdom.

At the edge of Edinburgh city there is this park called Hollyrood Park where the beautiful Salisbury Crags is found. It has a series of green hills and cliff. Such a beautiful scenery at this park.

After all the walking and hiking we took a break for tea at a typical English tea room called Clarindas Tea Room.

This is one of the popular Chinese restaurants frequent by the locals at Saigon Chinese Restaurant. Weirdly the name is called Saigon but it serves Chinese food probably it has some kind of Vietnamese connection.

Taking a stroll back to our apartment after our dinner through the many closes found in Edinburgh city. Advocate Close is one of the popular closes.
