What is the mini amount reqd to live a comfortable life (decent NOT overboard) for a month in Melbourne or Perth. Stay, food, etc.
Melbourne and Perth are two very different cities and the costs vary. Accommodation will be your biggest expense and this will depend on where you choose to stay. For Melbourne, I would recommend AU$4,000 per month at a minimum for a decent but not extravagant stay. Keep in mind also that the cost of eating out and tourist attractions in Australia can be quite high, so you will benefit from having extra savings "just in case". over 9 years ago
Hi, is it worth spending my only day in Abu Dhabi in the Ferrari theme park? If not, pls, what's the best places to go? Tks for your help!
WOAH! There is definitely a lot more to do in Abu Dhabi than Ferrari World, and I havee heard mixed reviews about it as a destination. Why not hire a taxi for the morning, and get him to drive you out to the Grand Mosque (Sheikh Zayed Mosque)? It will cost around US$30 for the taxi to drive you there and wait while you explore, and the architecture, design and carpets are just amazing. Also, the corniche beach is really beautiful with a bunch of neat little restaurants along the waterfront! Lastly, make your way to Emirates Palace, the most exquisite hotel in Abu Dhabi and check out their amazing lobby features before taking high tea in their restaurant. Lots to see! over 9 years ago
Hey, I was wondering if a Melbournian could tell me where they think the best place to have coffee is?
Seven:am on Bay Street, Port Melbourne, or one of plenty of hidden gems tucked away in Degraves Street, just down and across from Flinders Street Station. over 9 years ago
There's a swathe of Japanese and other Asian cuisine around Mt Gravatt, Underwood and Sunnybank. Definitely less formal - very casual! over 9 years ago
Cheap and cheerful is Madonna's in Port Melbourne. Beatiful Italian food! Otherwise, for more cafe-style lunch, check out Seven:am on Bay Street in Port Melbourne. Best coffee in the area, killer baked goods and they turn out a wicked club sandwich! over 9 years ago
Be careful of the elephanta caves - they're a bit of a tourist trap and can be a little disappointing. Take a walking tour through Kala Ghoda down to the CST station from Colaba, stop off in Horniman Circle for a little relief from the traffic and find yourself a local vegetarian cafeteria to try dosa and uttapam. Enjoy the rains, wander the wet streets of Apollo Blunder and dawdle along Marine Drive. Lots of walking to do - much fun! Take in the sights and sounds; it's like nowhere else! I was there just last week, so can tell you it's quite steamy. Be prepared for the humidity and drink a tonne of water.
