St. Kilda is considered as one of the most fashionable suburbs in Melbourne. To us, it is like Bangsar in KL, but of course it is more attractive and happening than Bangsar as it is a suburb near the beaches...
It is a good place to live in... a wonderful place for drinks and dining and during the summer, it transforms into a popular place for outdoor beach activities!
For people who are into wildlife, you can try your luck in St Kilda too. as St. Kilda harbour/ pier is also a preserved environment for penguins...
For people who are into photography, St. Kilda is also a place that you can consider for photo shooting during your visit to Melbourne.
Due to it's fantastic scenery, St. Kilda has also become one of our favourite places in Melbourne.
A visit to St. Kilda will never be complete without tasting of a cup of coffee/ hot chocolate and a piece of cake in Acland Street. So we also enjoyed our wonderful afternoon in Acland street :)
Note: Acland Street is one of Melbourne's Food Precincts. It is also a long-time favourite of Melbournians and tourists alike because of its famous cakes shops. It is now the number one stop for backpackers because of the busy cafes and close proximity to St Kilda's beaches.
