Walking through Melbourne

Arrived in Melbourne, the second largest city in Australia. Most importantly, you need to know about Melbourne - it is much better than Sydney. I do not understand why people travel to Sydney, where there is Melbourne. In Sydney, besides the beaches there is nothing interesting, Melbourne is a real city with trams, full veloinfrastrukturoy and good architecture. In Sydney, vanity, money ... Melbourne spirituality, culture and hipsters. From Sydney to earn money, you can live in Melbourne. The only thing worse than the weather in Melbourne: the heat 40, the cold and the wind. Sydney and Melbourne - as Moscow and St. Petersburg. See for yourself ...

From Sydney to Melbourne, I flew on a plane. Take off .. Goodbye, Sydney!

Walking through Melbourne

Here Melbourne seemed an hour flight. As can be seen from the airplane is almost no difference. Low-rise residential buildings and skyscrapers downtown. So it would be any US city. But we are in Australia.

I flew Tigrinya airlines. Nicest discounter. Not only do they have all the striped, so another way to show the label terminals in the form of tiger tracks. In Melbourne, they have a separate terminal - metal hangar, where it is necessary to taxis and buses to go on foot. Be prepared for this.

In Melbourne, the city is not a train! Only taxis or buses. This is bad, because you can get caught in traffic and lose hours on the road. Dear Bus: shuttle to the city center costs $ 18 one way (30 in both directions).

A taxi to the center cost me $ 50. Be prepared that you still take over toll roads. Also in Australia debility system, where in addition to the basic price with you all the time want to take something extra. Do you want to pay the card? Surcharge on top 2-3%.

Cycling paths are not made very well. But in this case it is necessary to let the track along the sidewalk and parking move. This is not very secure.
