Trip to Gold Coast, Day 1 -Part 1

Yup, I am back, from a wondeferful 5 days 4 nights Gold Coast holiday. I've been to Perth and Sydney, this time round, visiting Gold Coast in Queensland.
We took night flight, Air Asia, arriving GC time 755am. Took a rented car from airport, heading to our apartment at Broadbeach. Driving in GC is easy and cool. The drive from Coolangatta airport to Broadbeach is only 20-25minutes. Since it's our first time there, of course, there was some "mistake" and "detour"....anyway, we arrived at our apartment at Broadbeach - Mantra Sierra Grand approximately 50minutes. It was still too early to check it.

We left our luggage behind and head to Conrad Jupiter Casino just opposite the apartment for a visit. It's a quite old building, it's nothing compare to Genting casino, small and not that happening. Anyway, there was a funny thing happened, as we walked into the casino. I was stopped by the security to check my ID. Immediately I asked," Do I look so young?" She answered, "Yes, your ID please". Haha, I am happy only, as she suspect I am below 18, my goodness?!!! Haha..

Casino & hotel

There is a monorail connecting to Casino from Oasis Shopping Centre.

Headed to Zen, the Chinese Restaurant in Jupiters for lunch. I didn't take any photos because it was too bad?!! They called themselves the best Chinese Restaurant in Gold Coast, but the food was quite bad....disappointed?!!

Finally, time to check in. The apartment we booked was a 3 bedrooms self sustained apartment. Good security and nice place, except for the car noises.
Have a look at the apartment, nice ya!?

The Living room

Kitchen - with oven, fridge, washing machine, dryer, kettle etc etc, even different kind of knives, cups, wine glasses etc.

The bathroom - can see Pacific Fair Shopping Centre opposite -the biggest mall in Gold Coast.

The bedroom

Seeing the nice bedroom, of course is time to take a nap before we head to Surfers Paradise for some jalan jalan and sight seeing.......
