Destination: Perth, Australia. December 2016 (9 days).

Inspiration:

I have never visited Australia before and Perth happens to be the nearest city to Malaysia. I usually travel end of the year and I love summer so Australia was the perfect choice!

Getting There:

Flew via Air Asia X

Local Knowledge:

Constant sunshine throughout summer so no worries of getting caught in any rainfall and no worries that your adventures would be hindered by rain!

Where To Stay:

Comfort Hotel. Highly recommended as it is within walking distance to CAT bus stops, rental car companies, eateries and mini supermarkets

What To Do:

As I only had 9 days, I squeezed in as many places of interests as possible. The amazing places of interests I managed to go, see and do were King's Park & Botanic Garden, Crawley Edge Boatshed, Caversham Wildlife Park, Bell Tower, Elizabeth Quay, Perth Hills, Fremantle, Cottesloe Beach, Swan Valley, Hillarys Boat Harbour abd Sorrento Quay

Highlight of my holiday in Perth was Boxing Day shopping. It was truly a first for me! Haha! So much fun to see so many people (locals and tourists) in long queues who literally shop like there's no tomorrow! Haha!

Eating:

A variety of western, fusion and Chinese food. The best food experience was at Kailis Fish Market Cafe at Fremantle. Definitely must try the seafood platter! So fresh and yummylicious!

Must Do:

Definitely has to be a visit to King's Park & Botanic Garden! Humongous park to walk and enjoy nature at its best! Plus there are a few look-out points to see the gorgeous city of Perth from a different perspective! And if you are an avid photographer, you will take photos non-stop! Haha! This place is truly a gem! The best part is that there is no entrance fee! Its FREE of charge and opens throughout day and night!

Must See:

I would recommend The Bell Tower and Elizabeth Quay together as both are situated on the same premise. The architecture of The Bell Tower is awesome and futuristic looking while Elizabeth Quay is a stunningly beautiful esplanade! Both are breathtaking!

Number 1 Travel Tip:

If you do rent a car to go around places of interests, do take note that parking fee can be quite expensive for certain places. Its also very important to stick to speed limit! You wouldn't want to get a traffic summon during your holiday!

5 Word Travel:

Vibrant! Fun! Refreshing! Enjoyable! Satisfying!

Excess Baggage:

Just go and have a blast! :D
