Gold Coast is actually a quiet little city, aside from the main tourist attraction beach Surfer's Paradise. Littered with overpriced souvenirs stores and night clubs, it's a far cry from the scenic and peaceful beaches the rest of Gold Coast has to offer.
Brisbane city on the other hand, is like a miniature Sydney.
Almost immediately, I could see the change in pace in how the people goes about their daily lives here. Suited up businessmen walking briskly to their next meeting location, well dressed ladies going into the many boutique stores that lined the streets of Brisbane. If I was looking to shop, I would most definitely be spoilt for choice here.
Its not quite the mad frenzy Singaporeans possesses, but its close.
Definitely a trip I'll remember for many years to come.
Thank you for reading this far, lastly, Merry Christmas! Let's aim to make the next year a bigger bang than this year did!
