Closer to Denpasar in Bali than Sydney in Australia, Perth is clearly different than the other big cities of the country. Although Australia is renowned for its laid-back character, Perth somehow manages to one-up the rest of the country. Located at the Swan River and along the Indian Ocean coast, Perth offers (quiet) beaches, fantastic weather and relaxation.
What makes Perth special is that it manages to offer these things in combination with all the conveniences and pleasures of a big (1.8 million to be precise) city. Perth is a cosmopolitan, if not bustling, city that benefits from the large amounts of immigration here from especially Southeast Asian countries, which make for an interesting mix with the decidedly Australian cultural backdrop.
