Sightseeing
Queen Victoria Market is much more than the city’s fresh-food shopping mecca – it’s a historic landmark, a tourist attraction and a Melbourne institution. Spanning several city blocks, Queen Vic Market is the largest open-air market in the Southern Hemisphere. Explore the Market's historic sheds to grab a bargain or find a Melbourne-made treasure amongst clothing, jewellery, handcrafts, homewares and souvenirs. The market is open five days a week, with Sunday taking on a carnival atmosphere as entertainers delight the crowds. Guided tours highlight the market’s food, heritage, culture, shopping and history.

Arts & Culture
From its amazing water wall outside to the marvellous ceiling of the inside hall, the National Gallery of Victoria is a wonderful building. It has a range of exhibition spaces and reasonably good access to them including escalators and lifts. There's an incredible range of exhibits, including archeological ones, furniture, porcelain, silver and glass, costumes, and of course paintings and photography. The special exhibitions are varied and popular, also there is a special area for children, and additional events to draw people in.

Drinks & Nightlife
Best view of the city that you'll find in Melbourne. Grab a drink and head outside; you might struggle to find a table but patience goes a long way, and it's always worth the wait.

If gambling is your thing, you won't be short of gaming options. Tables are manned by professional and friendly staff who are willing to help if the games are new to you. One great thing about the casino is the option of drink areas and the many options of restaurant choices that are within the casino rooms themselves. Plenty of choice for even the fussiest of eaters. You won't be disappointed with what you can find to be entertained with at Crown Casino.

Food Scene
Amazing Kung Pao Chicken, delicious fried noodles and tender meat dumplings - it's worth to wait and definitely worth to try! The queue moves quite fast, food looks colourful and not too spicy. Overall, one of my favourite places in the city.

Very cool decor with the chairs on the roof but very tiny space. Not a place I would recommend to sit down but more of a takeaway coffee. Speaking of coffee, delicious with fruity hints at the end. No wonder why this is a local fave. Highly recommend veering off to come to this little gem.

Mr Meng is recognized for good food because of his unsophisticated approach. I was impressed by the simplicity of the place like if it was my grandma's house. We ordered one of the most famous Chongqing dishes, noodles with chickpeas and pork mince. The noodle was simple, extremely delicious and unexpectedly cheap!

This place is great for desserts. It has an extensive selection of desserts each just as good as the other. It was hard to decide on what to have, but whatever we had was amazing. Ended up going there twice so that we could try different things. You could simply have a meal of desserts here. It does get quite busy in the evening and love their system of serving. You pick a ticket when you are ready to order and wait for your number to be called out. A great system that works efficiently and gives you time to decide without the added pressure of making a decision fast.

Ridiculously cheap and ridiculously fast. Yummy Japanese fast-food curries. You can't go wrong with this place if you need something in a rush and only have a tenner in your wallet. Get in early because there will inevitably be a line come midday.
