We first went into the tourist information center to pick up some maps, and after receiving advice on routes, we started to walk the long tourist round which would take about 3 hours.
The round would show us the most worth seeing buildings and other things around town, but I have to say that Birmingham was the most boring town I've been to so far. Sure, there are nice places too such as the canals with its houseboats and restaurants.
The canals in Birmingham are even several miles longer than Venice and they form the heart of the British canal system.
Birmingham is also England's second largest city with just over one million inhabitants. (2008)
We also went to see an Indian temple, Shri Venkateswara (Balaji) which is located just outside the town.
It was a nice place and experience.
