I will be covering the different types of tickets available (only in places I covered), things to note when boarding the train, different classes. As we only travelled within Germany, I cannot help much if you are planning on a Europe rail trip. (more…)
Walking around Marienplatz and craving for some authentic German cuisine. Maybe you can head down to this restaurant that is situated downtown for some delicious lunch. We decided to give it a try and were not disappointed.
Spending a day at the Munich city centre can be interesting too. With all the important attractions, delicious cuisine and not forgetting the long shopping street that will let you spent a day here without realising a day has passed. Here are some of the places we visited and things we have done in a day.
A simple and easy transportation guide for travellers heading to Munich for 1 to 2 days short stay on what kind of transport ticket should they get and how to buy it. I will put down the most common pass/ticket that we will need and a step by step guide on how to get your ticket.
Getting a prepaid card in Munich or Germany was not as easy as I thought it would be, even though I read up on the experiences other people had. I thought of getting the sim card at the airport. However, after the research it seems like buying the Sim card outside will be better. Prior arriving into Germany, I went through the hassle exchanging email with the Mobile company indicating our interest to get the Tourist sim card and to find out more information. To our dismay, upon arrival not all outlets have the regulations standardise.
First stop in Munich, we will be staying at the well-known Accor hotel situated on the busy street of Munich city central near to the station. A total of 4 nights we had in Munich, 3 days for our first leg and after we are back from our 14 days tour for another night stay.
Getting to the city from Munich International Airport can be quite easy. Some of the transportation available at the airport would be the airport bus, train, taxi or rental car. However, I will only be covering on the Lufthansa Express Bus as this is what we took in Munich and was very happy with their service.
Heading off to Munich with Qatar Airway was planned 6 months before and when there is sale for travelling to Europe. We got the ticket for around 900SGD. This is my first experience with Qatar and the service of the staff leaves me with a deep impression. (more…)
After our walk at the Cathedral of Barcelona, we went to the busy shopping street near Hard Rock Cafe. There is one of their large departmental store, El Corte Inglés. You can have your last minute shopping here like we did before flying home. This day dinner we made our reservation at Hard Rock Cafe, despite having made reservations for our dinner we still have to wait for around 30 minutes before we were ushered in.
A day in Barcelona City and wanted to squeeze in some of the popular attractions to visit but couldn’t decide where to go? Here are some of the options to spend your day. We visited the famous Park Guell by Antoni Gaudi in the morning, after that to the Gothic Quarter and immerse ourselves in the ancient building around that area. Can have a shopping spree at the Calle Portal de L’Angel which is near to the Las Rambla.
