1st Day in Melbourne

 We arrived at Melbourne at 7 a.m. in the morning. The weather was really really good. And if I'm not mistaken the temperature at that time was around 8 degree Celsius (according to the pilot). :)

We then straight away head ourself up to Melbourne CBD via SkyBus, a shuttle bus service from airport to city centre for just $16/one-way. And for every 10 minutes, there's always a SkyBus to the city. 24/7 a day, including public holidays as well. Brilliant gila! ;)

Swanston Street in Melbourne CBD

This street is a walking distance from Southern Cross Station, one of the main hub for transportation services in Melbourne. 

We rode our first tram here in Swanston Street. :) And we were very impressed on how quick and efficient the service was. Ahhh... missing Melbourne :(

Toorak Road, South Yarra

Roughly around 10 minutes to get to Melbourne CBD from Toorak Road. And the tram station memang around 100m to the left from the place that we've stayed in which is the Hotel Claremont Guesthouse. As for the room rate, we took a private room with 2 bunk beds for just $108 for 3 days 2 nights which is inclusive of complimentary breakfast buffet. :) The room, toilet and services memang very good. Recommended if you're into a decent and very clean budget accomodation! ;)
