Writing the City Essay

Writing the City As you guys know Melbourne is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and last year I had the opportunity to visit it as my brother lives there. Now I have traveled through the USA, Canada & I-J and still, I find Melbourne is the greatest. If I went on to write about what was that great about Melbourne then I guess I should start thinking about writing a book but I can provide you with a bit of an insight when I got an opportunity to explore CAB ( term used for Downtown in Australia ) on y own while waiting for my brother to finish work.

As it was around 9 in the morning and Melbourne being famous for its cafe© culture so started my exploration for a nice cafe© to start with. Soon, I found my way to Queen Victoria Market it is the Queen of all markets. Exciting mix of cultures and ethnicities of Melbourne can be discovered here, with a variety of foods and a great place for breakfast or lunch, and chances are you’ll likely be able to grab yourself a meal from some far-reaching entry for an entirely reasonable price that makes for a nice change of pace from the typical “dine-in cafe” experience that is most popular in Melbourne.

One thing that really surprised me was that there were not many tourists there which truly meaner local Melbourne love the market but I can guess that might be because as it’s a great place to pick up fresh fruit and groceries which you can stock up on if you are planning to stay in the city for several days. The only downside I felt as that, due to its popularity it was very busy there and you even want to explore it then you’ll have to be comfortable fighting crowds.

In the end I was surprised that someone who was there Just for a breakfast was so lost into such a wonderful atmosphere of market that I end up spending 4 hours there but it was totally worth it. Now, I was only left with less than 2 hours to meet my brother so I decided to go to The Royal Botanical Gardens. These are a picturesque haven for recreation and an important resource for education, conservation, science and horticulture.

For a bit of history lesson, these gardens were established in 1846 and are extend over 36 hectares and display an amazingly diverse collection of over 50,000 plants from around the world, including rare and threatened species. Now I must admit all this info I Just collected from the information board Just outside the gates. Personally I think it is one of the finest examples of landscaped gardens in the world. One thing which really caught my eye was The Ian Potter Foundation Children’s

Garden and by far it is the most popular features in the gardens. This place is Just like a heaven for kids as they can play in the ruin garden, meeting place, wetland area, bamboo forest, gorge, plant tunnel, rill and kitchen garden. Other highlights of the Royal Botanic Gardens include the National Herbarium, Tropical Hothouse, Plant Craft Cottage and the Guillotine’s Volcano water reservoir but because of shortage of time, I was not able to check these areas out but next time when I’m in Melbourne, it is on top of my list By lovelorn
