Expert Tips for Travelling Through Melbourne
The city of Melbourne was once rated as one of the best cities to live in, in the world. The basic services are stable, and thousands of tourists flock to the city annually. Here is some advice for tourists heading out into the great unknown.
The Myki System
There are two topics that will help to break the ice if you are striking up a conversation with a Melburnian: the weather and the Myki system. This is a contactless ticketing system for Melbourne’s public transport network. A Myki card costs about $6, and it can be used anywhere in the city.
They can be acquired at booths in train stations, and they are also sold at some retail outlets like 7-Eleven and Tattersall’s. Unfortunately, you cannot buy them on a tram or bus. Choose between a ‘Myki pass’ and ‘Myki money’. The pass will give you the means to travel for a set period. Take a bus, tram, or train to get where you want to be.
Take a Walking Tour
See Melbourne on foot! Take a walking tour to learn some of the histories of the city. If you are adventurous enough, you can discover some hidden gems, theatres, and cultural attractions that will make it worth it. Walking tours are also advertised all over the place if you are keen to join a tourist bus.
Look online for a list of the best late-night entertainment and dining options. There are plenty of clubs, restaurants, casinos, and other attractions to keep your spirits up on a night out in the city. Soak up the sun and keep your spirits high to make it a night to remember. Revel in 24-hour casinos and party locations throughout the city.
This is the only city in the country that takes its nightlife seriously, and where you can party at all hours and then go out for a civilised meal.
Use these tips when travelling through the country and immerse yourself in some of the finest establishments the city has to offer. When the night is over, book a stay at some of the finest hotels in Melbourne.
