Medhatter Ponyfish Island Food is never boring. 

One of the many things I loved about Melbourne was how it was undoubtedly a cultural melting pot  – just like Singapore. With a little help from Zomato (previously Urbanspoon), you can probably find a variety of different cuisines in every single suburb. Prices typically begin from AUD$8 up. While that price tag might sound a little steep, fret not for the portions are atypically huge. Definitely worth the money! Shop by the PonyFish Island for delicious bites. It is right in the middle of Yarra Pedestrian Bridge, Southbank.


Don’t stay in just one place. 

As beautiful and amazing as Melbourne may be, let’s not forget that Melbourne is also just a short flight away from neighbouring cities. No plans for the weekend? Travel up north to Sydney or Brisbane in under 2 hours, and enjoy all that New South Wales and Queensland have to offer. If that doesn’t float your boat, fly down to Adelaide or Tasmania instead for a little bit of good old TLC from Mother Nature. If all else fails, grab your passport and make your way to New Zealand just three hours away for some authentic Kiwi fun.

Australia enjoys the four seasons, but when in Melbourne, you’ll often get to experience all four seasons within 24 hours! Located at the tip of mainland Australia, Melbourne is no stranger to periodic bouts of rain, strong howling winds and sunshine strong enough to leave you tanned. Always be prepared by carrying an umbrella, a light coat or scarf, and a pair of shades to beat the temperamental weather.

All in Good Time


As compared to Singapore, buses, trams and trains in the city strictly follow a timetable. Missing your chosen commute could mean a good 20 minutes wait for the next bus or train. Similar to the ez-link card system used in Singapore, Melbourne uses the Myki system for public transport, so always remember to have at least AUD$20 stored in your Myki card to avoid getting a hefty fine from the Public Transport Victoria (PTV) officers.
