Chinatown and Chinese restaurants are also near the Victoria market, and life is very convenient. Melbourne has many high-rise hotel apartments with kitchens that are perfect for families. However, it should be noted that hotels in Melbourne generally check in at 3 pm.
1. If there is a kitchen available in the hotel, be sure to go to the Victoria Market to buy seafood and steak to go back! Premium Australian beef and prawns are great for simple cooking!
2. Melbourne has food from around the world. Whether you like Western food or have a Chinese stomach, you can find the right taste whether you want to eat pasta or Lanzhou noodles. Melbourne brunch is a must try!
3. The Yarra Valley near Melbourne is the oldest wine region in Victoria, so Australian wines are also worth tasting.
Australia is a Chinese driver's license. You can rent a car with the original driver's license and translation. Since Australia is the right rudder, contrary to the domestic market, and the Great Ocean Road will have some ups and downs and big bends, it is recommended to buy a full insurance without any compensation.
The Victoria State Library
STATE LIBRARY OF VICTORIA, where you can listen to the live symphony for free: Victoria State Library on Swanston Street, when you see a green building labeled RMIT When the object, the library is across the road, and the trams 16 and 96 have corresponding stations to stop, we walked from the hotel to stay 10 minutes away, very convenient. The library does not bring things in and out. It does not need to be registered. It is very quiet, so the speech should be very quiet, so as not to disturb the people who are studying hard. There is no pillar in the interior of the library like the auditorium. The roof is arched and looks like a palace. We visited on Sunday and just met the symphony performance on the spot. The melodious music echoed in the auditorium. It felt full of artistic atmosphere. We also took a photo with the conductor after the performance. There are oil paintings and statues and personalized prints on the 2-3 floor of the library, all of which can be visited free of charge. If you are interested, you can go and see. There is an elevator on the right hand side after entering the gate, where you can take the elevator to the highest floor, overlooking the full view of the auditorium, and taking a beautiful library photo!
