Melbourne is one of the largest cities in Australia. Home to a bustling economy and developed infrastructure, the city is a popular destination for tourists. It has so much to offer that it is not a surprise that visiting the city is on the bucket list of people from all around the world. From malls to beaches and so much more in between, a tourist can find themselves amazed and a bit overwhelmed. After all according to your itinerary you can only spend a specific amount of days here and unless you are here for a month it will be impossible to visit and enjoy everything the city offers. However with the right guidance you can make the most of your trip. Let me tell you how.
Make Your Itinerary Ahead
If you think you can head to Melbourne and then decide what to do you are going to be in for a mess. Always plan out what you are going to ahead. Make a list of what you would like to see in Melbourne and then sit with a map and plot out how you are going to visit them all. Tackle area by area. This means you pick one area or maybe just for a day. Explore all the places within this area and do so in order. Look at the travelling time between places and then clearly plan out the day. This way you would not have to waste time travelling in between areas. Some people can make the mistake of choosing to go to point a, then point b and then point c when point c could be close to a than to b. So visiting it before you head to point b would save you time and taxi fare. Remember if you are crunched for time it is in your best interest to not waste any.
Always Try To Socialize With Locals
As wonderful as seeing the local attractions is, the heart of a city is its people and you should make it a point to socialize with them. When you get to know the locals you can experience their culture and the lives they lead first hand. It not only helps you learn about Melbourne better but it also makes the whole trip so much more meaningful. You can visit bars on collins street melbourne and make some great friends. So try to go out and socialize with the locals. Have a drink with them and just talk. If they like you enough they could show you more interesting places in the city that tourist magazines and websites don’t speak about. From the best restaurants to hidden coves. You just need to talk to them to find out.
Always Be Willing To Try Something New
The beauty of Melbourne is that the culture is so rich and diverse thanks to the multicultural aspect of the population that resides here. From being able to experience the cuisine and customs of the aboriginal community that resides here to the cultures of those who immigrated here.
There is always something new for you to do. Moreover, you have a variety of thrill activities that you can do from bungee jumping to swimming with sharks or even canyoning, if you want to experience something you have never done before, there is no better place than Melbourne for you to do so.
Therefore go to Melbourne with an open heart and an open mind but with a plan so you get to experience the best of what this city has to offer.
