Melbourne is well-known as one of the world's great street art capitals for its unique expressions of art displayed on approved outdoor locations throughout the city. We checked out some pretty spectacular graffiti in some of the lesser known laneways and we've been quite impressed!Β

GUEST QUESTION
which is the best season to go to Tibet?
00:06
Agness Walewinder
HOST
If you only take weather into consideration, April to October or summer to autumn is the best to visit Tibet. At this time, the weather is not too harsh and most areas of TibetΒ are accessible. Are you planning to go there soon? It's a wonderful place!

GUEST QUESTION
what do I need to pack when trekking in Tibet?
00:04
Agness Walewinder
HOST
Comfortable trekking shoes, clothes that would be suitable for the weather (warm if it's cold and lite when it's sunny, don't forget to pack a raining coat just in case), plenty of water and some snacks (dried fruits and nuts, some sandwiches).

Thulusdhoo, Maldives
Nestled in the Arabian Sea almost slap bang in the middle of the northern expanse that is the Indian Ocean, you’ll find paradise. Many people might not actually be able to pinpoint this south Asian country, considering that it is one of the smallest on the continent in terms of area and population, but we were becoming increasingly excited for our trip there. Blink and you’ll miss it – but the Maldives are not to be missed ... 🐠🌴🐚🌊

GUEST QUESTION
where is preferred to stay in Melbourne - CBD or outskirts?
00:05
Agness Walewinder
HOST
It really depends on your budget and preferences. If you can afford staying in CBD, then go ahead, you will love it. The city center is vivid and very creative so there are plenty of activities and parties to do and attend. If you don't mind the noise and loud music, that would be a perfect spot to stay at. However, if you value peaceful and calm places, get a hostel outside the city center. It will be easy to get around everywhere on foot and you can pay less and enjoy a bit less hectic atmosphere. Up to you! πŸ˜€

GUEST QUESTION
(revised post)
Hi guys.. m planning to head to Vietnam in June..
Duration: 8 days (including travel)
People travelling: 2
Route: Kuala Lumpur- Hanoi
: Danang- kuala lumpur
How do I plan my itinerary around this? Plz suggest.
Cez Krol
HOST
Hey Lyf and Spice!
First of all, you will love your journey in Vietnam. taking into consideration only 6 days as 2 days you'll probably spend on the airports, planes and fighting the jetlag, we recommend you discover Hanoi (1day), halong bay (2 days), tam coc (near Ninh Binh, don't miss it, it's stunning, 1 day), hoi an / hue / da nang(select one, 1 day), and you'll have enough time to add something there. This is also the order in which we recommend seeing these places.

you will truly love your trip. please let us know if you have any more questions and share some photos/stories after coming back
