Melbourne Is A Very Cool Town

In an earlier post, I compared Melbourne to Los Angeles. From a topography perspective, I still feel that way. But in terms of cool factor, it’s more like NYC. We loved the neigborhoods and the overall vibe of the town. My favorite spot was this super cool movie theater on a roof in downtown Melbourne. This rooftop movie theater is set up to take text message drink orders. You just set up a tab, then text their short code your seat number and what you want. Can’t beat that or the really comfortable blankets they provide.

We ate dinner at a thai place in the same building called Cookie which was pretty close to the food we got in Bangkok. All in all, I’d have to say Melbourne is my favorite of the places we visited in Australia.
