The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Eastern Beach Reserve and Room Escape Games. Next up on the itinerary: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, take in panoramic vistas at Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, learn about all things military at Shrine of Remembrance, and explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Victoria.

For maps, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Melbourne road trip app .

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to Melbourne is an approximately 9-hour flight. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Ho Chi Minh City to Melbourne due to the time zone difference. Expect much colder temperatures when traveling from Ho Chi Minh City in September; daily highs in Melbourne reach 20°C and lows reach 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Sydney.
