Brekkie at Merlo Cafe, George Street@Brisbane
It's has been a long long time since I flown Singapore Airlines. This time around, we took SIA because it's cheaper than MAS, as they have 2 to go promotion. Indeed, the A330 didn't fail to impress us. The service & food were great as compared to MAS. Moreover, inflight entertainment has got more choices too! The 8 hours flight was not so tiring and boring though!
We arrived at Brisbane around 655am, already booked CoachTrans airport transfer to send us to the hotel at CBD. It is perhaps a cheaper option as compared to taxi. As taxi is super pricey here in Australia as a mode of transportation.
We stayed at Mercure Brisbane which oversees the southbank...check the view out...lovely, isn't it?

Mercure has got a strategic location in CBD Brisbane, just 5 mins walk one can reach Southbank, Queenstreet Mall Shopping area, coach terminal etc.
We HAD our first day breakfast at Merlo Cafe - the coffee and the Mediterranean bread - lovely!
A great start of the day!!!
