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.

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
