It’s been almost 3 years since I’m living in Melbourne and honestly, this city has given me the best I could ever expect from a best known city. Firstly, the reason why I call it as the best is because of the high wages and low expenses which makes a huge gain in savings. Secondly, highly diversified population that blends you typically in every environment and creates a great experience wherever you go. Thirdly, the weather, I’d say the weather here is so pleasant that you’d complain whether it’s cold or hot cause apparently it’s bearable and when it’s sunny in summer, you’d find every Melburnians surrounding the beaches. Trust me, if you’re a beach person you’ll love this city.
