Travelling can be expensive, especially in a city such as Melbourne where there is such a wide variety of things you will want to try and places you will want to visit. Saving as much money as you can where possible is a good idea to ensure that you don’t find yourself with not enough money to get to the places you are dying to see. Most of the major tourist attractions and important places in Melbourne are within walking distance from each other; save money on taxis and public transport by seeing Melbourne on foot and burn some extra calories too.
Choosing to stay in an apartment instead of a hotel can also save you money. You can share with friends and have the extra comfort of more room and the freedom to come and go as you please. Also, you will be able to save money buying food to cook in your own kitchen rather than eating out every day.
