PERTH, AUSTRALIA

Perth is definitely one of my favorite cities.  It’s ranked one of the most livable cities in the world and I can definitely see why.  It’s very convenient to walk around in the CBD, and all the buses in the CBD are free.  Their world class museums are also free admission. For a bustling city, it has lots green spaces.  My favorite is the botanic garden, such a peaceful haven in the city. The food scene is diverse, international, and gourmet.  It’s also very easy to find healthy food such as an organic green smoothie. Below is a list of the best I’ve sampled on this trip.
