What people are saying:

Located in southern Australia, where the summer weather is not hot, long pants and short-sleeved shirts are fine. If it is cloudy, even wearing a long-sleeved shirt is not hot. Melbourne has two airports, and international flights all take off and land at airports closer to the city. There is a train station in the city, and trains to the suburbs of Melbourne or to Sydney pass through here. The urban transportation is convenient. Public transportation has trams, urban trains, buses but no subway. Buses to the suburbs depart at a large interval, almost every half an hour, which is not as convenient as Beijing. Taxis are generally only found at fixed taxi stands, and generally cannot be stopped on the street. It is very convenient to buy a local bus card (myki card), which can be bought at the airport. I live on Swanston Street in the city center, not far from Federation Square, Flinders Railway Station, Chinatown, and St. Paul’s Church, all within walking distance. When I went to catch up with the Australian Open, I was lying on Federation Square basking in the sun, drinking beer and watching the live broadcast on the big screen, with a large group of people lying around. There are several stations around the hotel where I live, and it is very convenient to go out by bus. It's very convenient to travel for free in Melbourne's CBD area. There are not as many public toilets as in Beijing. The city center is crowded and crowded. At night, people who are homeless and drunk start to show up on the streets, yelling, blowing and beating. If no one is around, you will feel that Beijing is still safe. The surrounding towns are very quiet, you can take the light rail to the town to experience the daily life of the locals. There are many Italian restaurants on Lygon Street. I feel that a Ferrari-car-themed restaurant called Café Corretto is worth recommending. It is cost-effective and crowded, especially on weekends. Diagonally opposite brunetti is a famous local dessert shop, you can try it. I tried several ice creams there. They were generally sweet and tasted average. You can eat something else next time. Brightonbeach is actually a large beach, divided into three parts. The most well-known section has a lot of people. I think the middle brightonbeach is better, but the traffic is not very convenient. There is no light rail train and you can only take a bus. You should go to the Great Ocean Road. I will give a detailed description in the review of the Great Ocean Road. In short, Melbourne is still very good, the environment is good, the locals live a comfortable life, the city is livable, and it is better than Sydney where I later went. The reason why I haven't visited all the places in Melbourne is probably because I think I will go there in the future.

Additional Information

Introduction

Melbourne is a marvelous place, one side nestled against the blue sea, the other leaning against a rock in flux, creating beautiful roads between the cliffs and wonderful scenery along the way, nothing can match it. Coffee is life, even more so, it is the attitude of life. Go to Melbourne and have a spiritual conversation with nature. From the wine-growing Yarra Valley to Dandenong Mountain Range, from the Great Ocean Road with its magnificent ocean views to Philip Island, where wild little penguins are lining up, this natural capital in the Southern Hemisphere will show you an undisturbed world where you can listen to the crystal clear sounds of nature amidst immersive greenery.
