Melbourne is a city that has it all, from a thriving business scene to a rich cultural heritage and a diverse range of activities. As a business traveler, you’ll find that Melbourne is the perfect destination to mix work with pleasure. Here’s what you need to know to make the most of your trip and hit that sweet spot between work and fun.
Ride a hot air balloon
Regardless of your location, riding a hot air balloon is always going to be fun. You should opt to schedule a ride before you start doing business in town. You will get to see a whole town from the air, and it is going to be a memorable experience. My advice to you is to try to catch a breath-taking exercise like the sun rising. So, this is a perfect activity if you love heights and are an adrenalin junkie.
Explore The Nature
If you’re traveling to Melbourne on a business trip and don’t have time for a full-day nature excursion, don’t worry, as you can still experience the city’s natural attractions. For instance, the Werribee Open Range Zoo offers a unique safari experience where you can observe wildlife, wetlands, and the Werribee River. If you are not interested in wildlife, you can opt to visit the Royal Botanic Garden, and the great thing is that they have many places where you can have a picnic and relax a bit from a stressful day at work.
When you come to a new city, one of the first things that you want to explore is the nightlife.
This is true even for business people, and I know from personal experience as I worked for years in the bars and restaurants of the hotels that have business people as the target group. Anyway, they are also people, and they do want to have some fun, especially after a long day at work.
The interesting thing about Mlebroun is that prostitution is legal. This means that you have an additional option if you want to “get lucky,” as that song says. If you are interested in seeing this side of the town, you should think about visiting Melbourne brothels just for the sake of fun. After all, you don’t need to worry, as they are completely legal.
Experience the world of Food and Beverage
For food lovers, Melbourne is a paradise. The city boasts a diverse culinary scene, with everything from innovative fine dining to delicious street food.
Some of the most popular food destinations in Melbourne include the buzzing Queen Victoria Market and the lively Chinatown district.
To get a great experience, you should ask for local dishes and beverages. I suggest you ask the waiter for advice, as he will know exactly what you need. You just need to explain to him your personal preferences, like, “Do you like more gin or whisky cocktails?
The bartending world has changed, and now the most popular cocktails are “house cocktails”. So don’t be afraid to try locally crafted cocktails, as they are typically a variation of classic cocktails, just done differently. After all, you can’t reinvent the wheel.
Anyway, you get the point. Try something new, and don’t forget to leave a good tip!
Just Go Out
If you can’t decide where to go, just go out of your hotel and start walking. I love this because I never know where I am going to end up.
Sometimes the night can stink, but most of the time I had the best time of my life. So, go into that bar, have a negroni, talk to people, and try a local beer. These are all the ways to explore a city and remember that the city is made up of the people that live in it.
If you want to truly get to know the place, start talking to locals, as they will tell you about the city and also recommend places to visit in the next few days. You may end up making new friends, and that can be the best memory of your trip to Melbourne.
