GUEST POST| 10 Things to do in Perth

Perth, my home in the last 3 months is certainly a hectic city. And this is probably its value, not too big to be a metropolis, not too small to know everyone.

It has the perfect weather almost all year round, ideal for water sports such as surfing and kite surfing. Regarding hotels in Perth, I don’t have to say much since prices are cheaper than Melbourne – Sydney and the choice variety is wider.
