There are so many good reasons why you should visit Perth in Western Australia. I'll tell you why in the next few hundred words as a local boy & who has lived here for the last 25 years. I believe Perth is still one of those hidden gems that many tourists do not know or do not get confused with the same as the more popular East Australian capitals like Sydney and Melbourne.
The truth is that Perth is very different from these bigger cities that are comparable to other major cities in the world like London and San Francisco. Perth is simply not in the same category as these cities. Perth is a small town with approximately 1 million people and is the size of many large cities in other parts of the world.
This much smaller size, coupled with remoteness, pristine beaches and coastline, world wine cellars and snowfalls, magnificent caves, high woods, and an excellent road system to reach these locations within half a day of the CBD, makes Perth a fantastic city to visit and live.
I moved here with my family from Sydney, looking for a better quality of life with my young family and trying to get out of the rat race as so many people do. What we've found is a much slower pace of life, with significantly less traffic, which allows us to travel much further in a much less time than a Sydney-sized city. The people were much calmer and very friendly and welcoming. In the other major Australian cities, it is said that WA (Western Australia) means waiting for a while, sarcastically suggesting that the pace of life is too slow, and local people are too relaxed and relaxed.
Well, I think that's exactly what Perth's unique complaint is about. We are not a thriving metropolis with a population of millions of people living in a predominantly overcrowded city with infrastructure that struggles to cope. Instead, there is a place to spread, with a spacious feel that is best demonstrated on local beaches and tourist destinations, which are often poorly numbered with visitors during the week, and even on weekends there is plenty of room for everyone. Contrast the usual scenes of packed beaches, zoos and other tourist destinations in other capitals around the world.
As a tour operator I will probably appreciate more than most of these unique benefits of Perth's stay & visit. I take visitors to wine tours during the week and many times we are the same in some places. Roads are almost empty with traffic, allowing for the most enjoyable journey and the ability to fit more stops in the trip. I fully appreciate how I am fortified because I often take the time to look at the clear blue sky during a beautiful sunny day while I sit outside with a group of tours and say: Thank you for my wonderful work in such a great city, Let me share this experience over and over again with many different people, all agreeing that it's a great time to visit this less well-known and underestimated tourist destination.
