Australia’s Most Popular Travel Destinations


Only 2 months are left in 2017 and it’s time to focus our attention to all of you who had a nice short holiday trip to this beautiful country in their bucket lists.

And since Australia has so much to offer (both in summertime and in winter time) we will try to get the best of both worlds and give you tips on where to go and what to visit when in Australia.

So, stick with us as we bring to you 3 most popular Aussie travel destinations!

Snowy Mountains
Skiing and boarding in the country of kangaroos is something that more and more people do every year. Because of winter season peaking during the European summer months, lots of Europeans prefer to visit Australia for some fun on the snow.

Yes, the country is mainly known for its beautiful beaches and rich wildlife. But if you head a little bit inland you can spend some quality time skiing the slopes of the Snowy Mountains. Numerous ski resorts in the area are abundant with snow throughout the whole season and can host both beginner and advanced skiers.

Also, prices are more than friendly, and you can always find beautiful and affordable accommodation in Thredbo or some other popular ski resort located in the area if you book in advance.

Road Tripping Australia
If snow and low temperatures are not exactly your cup of tea, and if you are more of a backpacking person and love to be on-the-move, then you might consider some of the famous road trips along the Australian coastline.

One of the most notable and most vivid ones is definitely road trip along the Great Ocean Road. Great Ocean Road is around 250 kilometers long trip along the southern coast of the country. It features fantastic landscape and lots of opportunities to soak in the sun and to witness amazing natural scenery such as the famous Island Archway in Victoria.

These trips are a great choice even if you are going on a budget travel trip. Besides the Great Ocean Road, you might as well take into consideration taking the Big Lap, the Savannah Way or the Coral Coast Drive.


Fun in the Aussie Sun
Lastly, since Australia is most widely known as a perfect destination for summer holidays, it is about time we mentioned some of the best beaches Australian coast has to offer.

Bondi Beach, which is very often dubbed as a ‘’surfer’s paradise’’ is where the majority of the tourists choose to go for couple of reasons. First of all, this is definitely one of the most beautiful sandy beaches on the continent. Further on, this is where all the fancy bars and restaurants are located and the beach is actually very close to Sydney.

If you’re looking for a more marble-like type of beaches, a little bit more secluded than Bondi Beach then you should definitely visit Byron Bay and its main beach. This is the easternmost point of the Australian mainland. Big waves are also frequent here which makes it perfect for surfers nonetheless.

The last mention on our list will go to the Fraser Island, pride of Queensland. This island is known as the largest sandy island in the world and it features the longest beach on the continent - the ‘’75 Mile Beach’’. The name of the beach is pretty much self-explanatory in terms of how wide this beach really is.

Besides untouched nature, Fraser Island is home to many wild animal species. This is also where you are most probable to see a kangaroo. However, this fact can be taken as a warning sign also as it is known that this crystal clear waters of Fraser Island are hosting lots of tiger sharks in the shallows so you should keep your eyes open.

Go Noodle House In City Square, Johor Bahru

MUCH HAVE BEEN SAID ABOUT GO NOODLES.... so he wanted to go and try for himself how they taste like...

And off we went to City Square in town.  Not surprising when we saw the queue right outside the Go Noodles... well, we came at the wrong time, right during lunch time!  We thought of going to Din Tai Fung after seeing the queue... but I told him that he must try the Go Noodles, otherwise sure regret one...  LOL... Anyway, it was not a long wait, we pre-ordered our food while waiting and the food was served in less than ten minutes after we sat down. 
Every table was occupied... 
For appetizers, we ordered a basket of Fuchok... 
Crispy hot... and nice, of course!
My order is the normal Meat Balls with with their signature noodles Mi Xian... 
His order... Bursting Meat Balls with fine meehoon... 
Then we inter-exchanged the meat balls.... 
The broth as usual was fantastic! 
He finished them all!
Even before he started on them, he gave a Thumbs UP sign... 
His trademark sign on Malaysian Food!
LOL

Dinner At Ah Meng Restaurant, Taman Iskandar Johor

ON THE DAY WE FLEW BACK TO JOHOR... we reached around 3.30pm, just nice to get home, unpacked, had a good rest before preparing ourselves to go for a nice dinner at Ah Meng Restaurant in Taman Iskandar.  One must not leave Johor Bahru without coming by here for some special dishes such as the Smack Noodles, it is so-called. 
However this time, it did not look as "smacky" as before... LOL.. 
The taste is still the same.... very "wok hei"...

Some crispy fried octopus... 
These were what we had for a table of four... 
And for desserts, I must have OR NEE before leaving... 
Pumpkin with gingko and sweetened yam...
