Hello Melbourne! It is on March!

Tickets done! Visa done! Hello the Land of Kangaroo! 

I will visiting Australia on March 2014 for the 3rd time but this time is in Melbourne. Melbourne is the capital and most populous city in the state of Victoria, and the second most populous city in Australia .The name "Melbourne" refers to an urban agglomeration area (and census statistical division) spanning 9,900 km2 (3,857.2 sq mi) that comprises the greater metropolis – as well as being a common name for its metropolitan hub, the Melbourne City Centre. It is a leading financial centre in Australia as well as the Asia-Pacific region,and has been ranked the World's most livable city since 2011 (and among the top three since 2002) – according the Economist Intelligence Unit.Melbourne is rated highly in the areas of education, entertainment, healthcare, research and development, tourism and sports. 

According to CNN, Melbourne City listed as the most livable city in the world ( 2. Vienna, Austria,  3. Vancouver, Canada, 4. Toronto, Canada, 5. Calgary, Canada, 6. Adelaide, Australia, 7. Sydney, Australia, 8. Helsinki, Finland, 9. Perth, Australia, 10. Auckland, New Zealand, 95.7) and Ini Kali Lah. Excited! 

I have been to Perth two times on business trip and what i can cay that Australia is one of the most beautiful country in the world.  

Every time before i travel, i will check as much information about the destination. I have read some travel log about the best time to visit Australia is on March to May and around August and September. Autumn will start on March and oh yes, i don't need to bring winter jacket! 

Actually, i don't have any idea about the places of interest in Melbourne, but my friend promised to bring me around. Just wait and see lah. Can't wait!
