How to get there?

Singapore is a country and city in the continent of Asia. It has a economically stable situation and is home for a lot of big companies situated in the city of Singapore. This brings cheap flights because of the business infrastructure. Singapore has its own airport and from there you get to almost every corner of the city with the metro. The metro works great and the prices are good. Feel free to grab a taxi in to the city and Uber and Grab are often used and accepted.

Find your way to Gardens by the bay or take the metro right to the station so called. The Gardens are beautiful to walk through and after a couple of minutes walking you will arrive to the Cloudforest. Close is also the Flowerdome or the Skywalk, also famous attractions.

Where to stay?

The most famous hotel of Singapore is probably the Marina Bay Sands. It is known for its infinity pool with a breathtaking view on the city. We stayed at a hotel close to the center but a more affordable one! click on this Link or watch the video log i filmed there.

What is special about the Cloudforest?

The Cloudforest is an artificial construction full of plants and an waterfall under a huge glass dome. It is really impressive to walk through and you can walk all the way up on a passage high above the ground and enjoy this futuristic place from different perspectives. It is an amazing adventure!

How much does it costs?

You can enter the Gardens by the Bay for free which is cool because you will experience a couple of statues formed with plants. To enter the Cloudforest you have to buy a ticket. The price for the entrance for an adult is: 28 Singapore Dollar. With this ticket you can also enter the Flower dome right besides it.

What is special in Singapore?

The city offers huge skyscrapers with stunning views. The Marina Bay Sands for ecample is a huge hotel but a big shopping center as well. Futuristic architecture, especially the "gardens by the bay" will make your jaw drop. Besides those modern buildings Singapore has a clash of cultures and different religions. Experience how peaceful they life side by side in little India or Chinatown.

Bondi Beach and the Icebergs Pool

bondi beach icebergs

There are many options to go on day trips from Sydney. One of them is the day trip to Bondi Beach. This is the place where the famous Australian series called Bondi Beach Rescue was filmed. And as the name of the Series reveal it: Bondi has a famous Beach but the sea can get ruff there. It is easy to reach Bondi Beach with the bus. from the bus station we walked couple of minutes and arrived at the Bondi Beach Icebergs Pool.

The Bondi Beach Icebergs Pool

This Pool is an iconic construction which is a part of Bondi. It is a pool built right by the sea and when the tide is high, as it was when we where there, the waves clash against the pool corner and wash the swimmers with salty water. Its was so fascinating to observe how the waves splashed up against the Bondi Beach Icebergs poolcorner!

From the Bondi Beach Icebergs Pool starts the “Bondi to Coogee Walk”. It's a coastal walk known a tourist attraction and its really a beautiful path to explore, you’ll love

Surf Bondi Beach

 

Bondi Beach is a well known surf spot. With the high tide and the decent size of the waves i rent a surfboard and tried to catch some wave. it was pretty hard to ride the waves because the current was strong and the lineup crowded. Neverthless it was fun to practice!

The Sydney Opera House

sydney opera house

While landing in Sydney i experienced the most impressive plane window view i’ve ever had. I could directly see the famous Sydney Opera House right beneath the Harbour bridge. It made me even more excited to explore this city.

After landing you reach the Sydney city center easily with the train. We stayed in an amazing Hotel which we can recommend because of its fancy interior and it is good situated.

The first thing we had to do was visiting the famous Sydney Opera House! it is really an architectural masterpiece, no matter from which angle you look at it, it always shows up in a different shape. I also highly recommend to participate with an interior tour, the Sydney Opera House is inside as impressive as from the outside.

Melbourne, Australia, was named the world's most livable city by the Economist Group, publishers of "The Economist" magazine. After spending a week in Melbourne and working on our list of the 14 Melbourne things to do, we really have to say it’s an amazing city. The People are very helpful, the government invest in good public infrastructure, Melbourne has a great culture and the Queen VIctoria Market (Point 13.) is really a place to have a great time no matter it's night or daytime.If you consider to travel Australia i’d say: a citytrip to Melbourne is an absolute must.

This tower is one of the highest in Australia and you can clearly feel the hight in the elevator when it shoots up to the 88th floor. Up there you get a 360 degrees view over Melbourne. I speend hours on this skydeck observing the people hurrying around like ants.
