Trial Bay Gaol
Take a road trip to South West Rocks on NSW's epic coastline, this place is truly magical. Best for surfing, relaxing on the beach, exploring the National Park. Must do: Smoky Cape Lighthouse at sunrise and the a visit to Trial Bay Gaol. #staycation#familytravel#summervacation#nationalpark#wintergetaway#beaches
When we landed in GZ, we were blown away by how green it was. A stark difference from the concrete jungles we were used to living in China. During the summer months, the city is full of flowers and greenery everywhere you look. There is so much to see and do in GZ, you could spend a weekend or a week here without a shortage of things to do! We could have gone on forever but here are our top 12 recommendations (in no particular order): 1. Huacheng Square -surrounded by popular attractions like the IFC building, K11, library and museum. Great view of the Caton Tower (this place is a 🌈 of colour by night). 2. Zhujiang park 🌲🌸🌿(a oais in the heart of the city). 3. Party Pier 🍽️🍹💃(lots of outdoor restaurants and bars with a stunning view of the city) 4. Canton Tower 🌈 5.Cloud Pathway 🏙️🌲(8km scenic walkway through the center of the city, a great way to see some of GZ's popular parks and landmarks). 6. Four Seasons/IFC Building 🍰☕🥂(enjoy an amazing view of the city and Canton Tower whilst indulging in a high tea or cocktail at either one of their 2 bars) 7. Baiyun Mountain ⛰️🚠 (lots of well maintained walking trails) 8. Cycle or walk along the river. Start at Haixinsha Island and carry on to Ersha Island (another place that is worth a visit on it's own) 🚲🚶. We highly recommend going around afternoon/dusk 🌇🌆. 9. Liwan Lake Park 🏞️ (massive park with a lovely lake, gardens and ancient style buildings) 10.Escape the heat and visit some of the massive malls 🛍️ . K11, Parc Central, Grand View, IGC and Taikoo Hui are worth a visit! 11.Sunac Snow Park 🏂(yes you heard right, there is a snow park in Guanzhou complete with a ski lift!) 12.Yuyin Shanfan 🌿🌷🌺🌸🏵️(Stunning gardens, lakes and architecture. The tranquil environment makes it a perfect escape from the bustling urban city). We ❤️ GZ! #urbanexplorer #urbanhike #beautifulnature #beautifulcity #flowercity #snowpark #parks #riverwalk #citysites #summervacation #citylife #beautifulsunsets#scenicspotguide#couplestrip#familytravel

Seasons Heritage Melbourne
#staycation #summervacation #familytravel Situated at 572 Stkilda Road Melbourne in my opinion this place is one of the best kept secrets in terms of hotels. Tram literally at the doorstep no more then a 10 minute tram ride into the heart of Melbourne CBD or a short 2 minute walk and you are at Albert Park Lake. On-sight car park also available at a decent price rooms a nice clean and spacious please keep this place in mind if you are looking at staying in Melbourne whether it be for a staycation, business or for the Melbourne GP this place will not disappoint, a nice mixture of a heritage front and modern inside not to mention friendly helpful staff

Lijiang Ancient City
Lijiang Ancient City 1. Where to stay - There are so many goregous hotels, just be sure to book inside the ancient city. We stayed at the Floral Hotel Yujia: No.87 Wenzhi Lane, Wuyi Street, Lijiang, 674100, Yunnan, China. It's in a really good location, close to one of the gates to the ancient city and the hotel owners are very thoughtful and will meet you outside, help you with you bags and lead you through the maze of alleys to the hotel. The hotel is very authentic, cosy and clean. It has 2 levels and a beautiful garden inside. Rating- 3 1/2 ⭐ 2.What to do- Literally go and get lost! We thought Dali's ancient town was a maze, but this is next level! We couldn't stop taking pictures, it's so beautiful 😍. Hot tip: drop pin your hotel's location before you start exploring 😂. 3.Best restaurant 🤤- Yun Xue Li Adress: 云雪丽餐厅(木府店) I know this is a big call, but I think this is some of the best food I've had in China. Rating- 5 ⭐ 4. Coffee ☕- Yun Hotel. After hours of sight-seeing we were in desperate need of a coffee break. We stumbled upon this gem at the perfect time. It has a peaceful courtyard and lots of cosy nooks to relax and unwind. They have a fancy tea and coffee list and we can confirm their cakes are delicious! Rating - 4 ⭐ 4. Lijiang at night 🌃 Highlights - It is well worth seeing the city at night. Lijiang has some of the best street food and an abundance of fresh juice and fruit. Grab it straight off the street and eat it on the go! There are so many bars and just about all of them have live music, just take your pick! Rating- 5 ⭐ Lijiang has to be one of my favourite places in China. Its temperate climate makes it a perfect place to enjoy the warm weather and escape the scorching heat and humidity experienced else where during the summer months. Overall Rating - 5 ⭐ #summervacation #beautifuldestinations #unforgettableexperiences#couplestrip#historicculture#deliciousfood

Whether you are family, couple or group of friends, Sanya is the perfect holiday destination if you are craving a beach getaway. How to get there: ✈️ Where to stay: So many areas and resorts to choose from, it can be overwhelming. Yalong Bay- Yalong Bay is probably one of the nicest beaches in Sanya. It's less crowded than other beaches and seems to be a hub for all kinds of water sports if you're feeling adventurous. HouHai- Is a relaxed 'surfing' village. We didn't see any waves when we visited, but loved the enthusiasm of all the beginner surfers still out there giving it a go. We are thinking about staying here on our next trip to Sanya for the nice swimming beach and relaxed atmosphere! If you looking to indulge in 5 star luxury accommodation there are so many beautiful resorts to choose from. We spent a few nights at the '1 Hotel' which was absolutely amazing (however, you will have to drive to find a nice beach). Sanya Highlights: -The beaches of course! -Yanoda Rainforest Cultural Tourism Zone . A beautiful rainforest walk with many panoramic lookout points. Suitable for all fitness levels. -water sports -boat trips, snorkeling, diving -amazing resorts -hiring a scooter or car and exploring the island If you're living in China, Sanya is the perfect all-year-round holiday destination. #summer #summervacationtravel #summervacation #beachholiday #couplestrip#familytravel#hiking#bestislandtraveltowns#beautifulhotel
