During our stay in Swan Valley—Western Australia—we visited many beautiful vineyards and wineries which we will never find in urban Singapore. In Swan Valley, vineyards are abundant and they are stunning, to say the least.
Even in early spring, vineyards boast a magnificent view and we were impressed by how massive they are and the excellent wines that are produced from the high-quality grapes that require attentive care. From whites to reds and even fortified options, you can find just about any variety here.

Perth—the capital of Western Australia—might not be as famous as its Australian counterparts i.e. Melbourne and Sydney but is definitely still a lovely city worth visiting. With its flourishing dining scene and laid-back beaches, we reckon the world’s sunniest capital city is a perfect holiday destination. In fact, Perth is only a 5.5-hour direct flight away from Singapore!

Chu Bakery is arguably among the top bakeries in Perth, and it is also one of our favourites.
Strategically located opposite Hyde Park on William Street, the takeaway-only bakery spots long queues every day. It is not hard to understand why the locals love Chu Bakery so much—an array of croissants and bakes, good coffee, and breakfast takeouts.
Ah, Perth. It’s not quite the bustling metropolis that is Sydney, nor does it boast the quirkiness of Melbourne’s coffee connoisseurs and music lovers – but don’t be too quick to brush it aside. The laidback capital and largest city of Western Australia has its own quiet charms, endearing characteristics and, of course, one of the best climates in the country.
