Hotels in Brisbane

I love traveling. I love visiting the places of interests in different countries, experiencing their culture and way of life, and of course, having a taste of their native foods. I have been quite lucky that in the course of my work, I've had the opportunity to travel quite a bit. I've been to the USA, Europe and most of Asia. The one region which I've yet to have a chance to step foot on is the Australasian region.

The major tourist spots of Australia surely include the famous Gold Coast and nearby Great Barrier Reef; Sydney, the capital of New South Wales and one of the most glamorous and beautiful cities in the world, with dozens of harbor and ocean beaches in and around it; and the Ayers Rock in the heart of the Northern Territory.

Brisbane, on the other hand, is not exactly on the top of travelers' priority list. But therein lays its charm. The capital of Queensland, Brisbane is relaxed and laid-back. One needs to spend time immersing oneself in its people and culture to appreciate Brisbane. The major attractions of Brisbane include Australia's largest koala sanctuary and hand-feeding wild dolphins at Moreton Bay. Though Brisbane is not as highly popular as some other Australian cities, if I were to visit Brisbane, I'd still like to ensure I have a roof over my head when I set foot in the city. There are plenty of accommodation choices in Brisbane, ranging from the economical bed and breakfast establishments to  posh 5-star hotels. With the advent of internet, booking a hotel is a walk in the park as I can book them online at numerous websites, including CheaperthanHotels.
