On the third day, I decided to go to uni to get myself enrolled and to figure out stuffs before heading out to explore the city. I didn’t check the map and just simply walked ;p I knew it’s at the other side but not sure of the correct road that led to it. Asked a few people along the way and saw many buildings of the uni around the area but I didn’t get any of them correct ;p
Anyway, after multiple attempts I finally reached there! Hahaha… It’s so near to the place I’m staying but I walked one big round, I think I almost covered the quarter of the west side of the city on foot;p
Right in front of the uni, free tram service within the city. However, it also leads to the suburbs and beach but it’s not free. I’m still trying to figure out the ticketing system so that I can go the beach and also visit another shopping centre.
After spending almost the whole afternoon at the uni, I decided to hop on the free city loop bus to see the overview of the city since it stops right in front of the uni.
From it, I found Chinatown! Great!
Buildings around the city. There’s many places that I had discovered riding on the bus.
I just took some photos as the bus moved.
I’m taking the anti-clockwise free bus.
Left: Railyway Station where you can find quite a number of attractions around it. The casino, the park, and so on.
Right: Adelaide Convention Centre.
Basically just to share the city views of Adelaide with you.
It was funny that I didn’t know where I should get off to go back to where I’m staying ;p I got off after the bus passed two stops (if I recall correctly). If I didn’t get down, I’ll be going back to the uni. That’s how I found out the lane leading to my place was between the two stops hehehe…
It was a tiring day but quite fruitful as I found quite a number of landmarks for me to discover the next few days.
Comments on “3rd Day in Adelaide”
Hi Irene, love your pics here. Abit like Toronto.
You have fun, go on walkabouts….
how’s the shopping?
Australia is one country I have not been….yet.
A normal ticket will last you for two hours. You can get the concession ticket whoch is cheaqer. Also between 9am and 3pm the ticket price is also cheaper. Basically the same ticket is used on bus, tram and train.
The tramline is only one way to Glenelg. There are train lines cover north, south and east west. The bus route beasically covers all suburb.
You can buy a day trip ticket and start exploring. The chance of getting lost is very slim.
Uncle Lee, hehehe… Shopping, no money to shop, saw so many boots, *drooling*
William, thanks for the advice 🙂 gonna try it out hmm… Tomorrow maybe.
Glenelg would be nice to visit. I loved the area and I bet slowly you’ll find your way all over Adelaide and SA. Borossa Valley is very nice too if you enjoy wine and scenery. Remembered I drove 8 hours from Melbourne to Adelaide last time and these photos certainly reminded me of alot of memories. If you were to get Asian grocery, Chinatown is of course the best place to go to. I remember going to a few restaurants in Chinatown and they’re very resonably priced. Definitely cheaper than Melb!
Patrick, thanks for the tips 🙂
