As per requested by Worldwindows, I shall share more on accommodation and travelling details...ok, will try!!
As for accommodation booking, I did it online, there are many sources you can try to do your online booking. My experience with Travelonline.com is quite good. As they will try to match a lower price if you provide them with others' quote. There is a hospitality group offers great accommodation choices, that is the Stella Group. The hotel or apartment they offer are basically good, in terms of security, cleanliness and location.
Ok, back to my day 1 trip, after a nap, we headed to Surfers Paradise, the main attraction in Gold Coast. Since we stay at Broadbeach, we have to either drive or take a bus to Surfers. Public transport is easy here in Gold Coast....taking bus or driving will be just 10mins away.
The two main rows of shops at Surfers for shopping, food, coffee, ice-cream etc.
Circle on Cavill - the hotel/ apartment cum high end shopping
Hardrock Cafe@ Surfers Paradise
Dinner we enjoyed at Captain's Table Seafood Restaurant, Surfers Paradise. The restaurant is recommended by LQ, quite crowded, food is good.
Can't go without seafood in Australia....superb fresh
The Fried Squids
The day special- Sirloin Steak and Lobster - AUD29.50 - quite worthy, I don't think we can get this price in Malaysia...
Fresh salad - without mayo, taste great
The Barramundi Fish fillet
Overall rating for
food taste: 8/10
That's end of first day....need to re-charge ourselves. Darn tired...zzzzzzzz
