      Only been to London before.

      Been in Surrey, where I have helped work on bats and reptiles (Surrey is apparently good for reptiles) but not Woking.

      I can imagine I would like China, it has its own alligator species, several other unique and interesting creatures AND its government is apparently very pro-science (most of government are represented by engineers and the like).

      Ach! The agony of choice! It will have to be London to be on the safe side. I do look at London as a long term captive views his/her kidnapper. But there is a lot going on for science there, as well as general intellectual stuff that makes your mind richer even if you’ve been financially bled dry by the capital.

      I have to vote for London because it’s the only one of the three that I’ve been to. I lived in London for a year and I really enjoyed it. China has some really great fossil sites and there has been great palaeontology coming from China in recent years, so I’d like to visit sometime. I’m afraid that I don’t know anything about Woking – what can you tell me? What’s interesting in Woking?

      Difficult question, when I have only been to one of them! Been to London many times, but never in China (which I guess as to be amazing) or Woking! Don’t know much about Woking, but please feel free to share 🙂 For the time being I would choose to visit China, as it is far far away, and I am sure it would be a great trip to investigate a very different culture, landscape and wildlife! Should I start planing a trip?

      Again I’ve only been to London, and I haven’t been to Woking or China (yet! I would love to go)..

      But I do love London. I lived there for 2 years studying and working at London Zoo. There are so many good shops, and good music… I did enjoying living there very much.

      But I would love to visit China, and Woking, so that I could see what it is like there!
