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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
