Travelling to Perth (WA)?
For people living in Asian countries such as Malaysia and Singapore, Perth is a popular holiday destination. Especially for people who had never travel overseas before. Why? Simply because Perth is a relatively close city from most South-East Asian countries. To keep with the car theme of this blog, this post is dedicated to a recommended car hire company for you to consider for your car rental needs during your time in Perth. The company is called Aries Car Rental located in the heart of Perth CBD and another location in Kewdale (very close to Perth Airport).
Our readers are obviously car enthusiasts, what you’d be glad to know is that Aries offer modern cars such as the Nissan Altima, Renault Koleos and the Nissan X-Trail. So you can actually enjoy your ride whilst doing sight-seeing in Western Australia. With regular servicing carried out on their fleet, you can be rest assured that you are driving a safe vehicle. The recommendation for this company came from John, one of our regular reader after his experience with Aries during his recent visit to Perth a few months ago.
John Hired the Nissan Pathfinder
John actually rented a large sized car – the Nissan Pathfinder since his love for four wheel drives. His overall experience was excellent, hence why we’ve decided to include this recommendation in our car enthusiast blog. We asked John what the highlights were during his travel. In his opinion, below are the top 5 spot to visit in WA. Of course he recommend hiring a car to cut the travel time and the fact that you can schedule your time when visiting these places.
Places to Visit in Perth and Beyond
The five places mentioned below were given to us by John. It is purely his opinion and obviously everyone’s taste will be different. So do your own due diligence when considering these places.
First of the his list was a somewhat obvious one, the Perth city area, primarily for the shopping experience. According to the Visit Perth City website, there are more than 900 specialty shops within the Perth City. With a mixture of indoor and outdoor shopping malls. Together with free live entertainment by buskers and weekly market stalls, it is definitely a place to spend your time.
Perth has plenty of public golf courses for you to enjoy a round (or more) of golf with your partner or friends. John loves his golf, so you can imagine why this was on the list! He definitely recommends the Lake Karrinyup Country Club. Just do a quick search on the internet and you will find lots to choose from!
Located south of Perth, Margaret River is a popular destination amongst tourists. With organised wine tours, cave and lighthouse tours. Even whale watching is on the menu! Another benefit of visiting this area is the fact that other popular spots are in close proximity such as the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse and the Busselton jetty.
A short ferry trip, Rottnest Island is WA’s Island getaway. The island boasts one of the world’s beautiful beaches. Whilst there, don’t forget to explore the flora and fauna on the island.
This is definitely the place to go if you love the wildlife, Monkey Mia is well known for the tamed wild dolphins. But apart from the dolphins, you may also see sharks, turtles, rays and dugongs. There is also a walk trail for those keen on doing walks.
