Melbourne - The Beuatiful City

Hm, nothing much happened to both MM and myself recently. We live a normal life and hence, sometimes we do not quite know what to share with our friends here. *Cracking head*

A few months back, I visited Melbourne with MM and her family. Hence we'll blog about our trip to Melbourne.

And today's entry is about some interesting places or facts of Melbourne City.

This is Flinders Street Train Station, the main train station in the heart of Melbourne.

What else do we have in Melbourne? Tram!

The red one is the city-loop tram. It is FOC. It takes visitors/passengers touring around the city for FREE.

This is Bourke Street, and I'd call it the shopping-street. Some call it '扑街'. This was where we did most of our shopping at :D There are Myer, David Jones etc. And China Town (Little Bourke Street) is located just right behind Bourke Street

This is Swanston Street, the main street in Melbourne City. Many call it 'Business' Street or '商业街'.

And these 3 men had been standing at Swanston Street for ages.

This place is called Docklands. It's located at the Victoria harbour. I think the Melbourne government is trying to make it a place like Darling Harbour in Sydney, and I'd say it is definately one of the must-go place in Melbourne city.

This is Victoria State Library.

Ahem, this is club X. I guess you will be able to tell what is this shop about by looking at its name :D Okay, it's an 'adult' shop XD Basically Club X is everywhere in Melbourne. 2 bucks for a peep only! :D

Another must-visit place in Melboune city is the Shrine of Remembrance. It's a memorail for the all the Australian armies who sacrificed their lives in wars.

Another pic taken at the Shrine.

Apart from the above, there are still quite a number of interesting and must-go places in Melbourne city like Lygon Street, Victoria Market, The Crown (Casino :D), Melbourne Aquiarium, etc.

As Melbourne is known as the Garden City, you may also visit one of the well-known garden in the city called Fitzroy Garden (费事来花园 -__-) .

We'll blog more about our trip to Melbourne soon.

oh really?
We will blog more about our trip then!

Stay tune and have fun reading!

P/S: If you're looking for some budget day tours say to the great ocean road, philip island etc in Melbourne you may go for Extragreen Holidays/長青旅行社 which is located at Swanston Street. As they offer quite affordable Chinese Speaking tour packages (but the tour guides are not as 'Pro' as those English Speaking ones).
