Holiday in Milan, Italy (December 2013)

Hey everyone,

After a day in Venice, the next day was a plan to stroll around Milan. With the Metro station just a few minutes away from the hotel, hence, it's easier for us to start our journey. The Metro will cost you €1.50 1-way.

Places to go in Milan:

Take the Metro and get off at Duomo to visit The Duomo Church.
Reminder : At the Duomo Church, you will find a few African guys trying to tie some stupid thread bracelet on your hand and he will definitely say it's a gift. After they tied it, they will ask for money and only God knows what he will do to you if you don't pay. So, please be careful.
Shopping at Galleria Vittoro Emanuele II if you like branded stuff. Don't forget to claim for the 13% VAT if you do shop here. It was a window shopping for me as I was planning to buy mine in Paris (yes, I'm that lazy to carry my stuff hahaha).
On our way to the 'fashion rectangle' (we walked all the way there) for more window shopping, we found this lovely park which is called Parco Indro Mortanelli. How I wish it was spring time.
More window shopping at Quadrilatero Della Moda. 
Jimmy Choo
His dream car... Maserati
Louis Vuitton
Milan city.........

Holiday In Venice, Italy (December 2013)

Hey everyone,

It's been a while since I wrote a post in this blog. So this post is a super long due post that I should have written in 2013 (yes, you do the counting). This post about my holiday will be in several different posts as I went to a few places which are Milan, Venice, Rome and Paris.

As I hate transiting, so we took a direct flight to Paris and took a cheap flight to Milan (Easyjet).
We took a bus to Milan Central which costed 10 as our hotel was only a 2-minute walk from the central.

Milan Central
We stayed at Hotel New York. Would really recommend you to stay here if you are looking for a cheap and descent hotel.

On the 1st day, we took a train from Milan Central to Venice (day trip) which took us about 2 hours to get there. Purchased the ticket earlier online to get a cheaper price.
Travel by Waterbourne in Venice which costs 7.00 1 way
Things must do in Venice:
1) Ride the gondola ((40 for 40 min)
2) Visit the Grand Canal

3) Strolling at Piazza St. Marco

4) Take a picture in front of Hard Rock CafĂ© Venice 
p/s : An important reminder. Please be careful and hide your cash as best as you can as there are a lot of pickpockets especially in Milan. You'll be surprised at how professional they are.
