Mum and I had arrived on Saturday evening and opted to have room-service dinner in our room at the Sebel. Harbour views, glorious weather - it was a great start.

On the Sunday morning, we ambled around the Lagoon and Esplanade area - enjoying the sunshine and avoiding cyclists and runners taking part in the triathlon - before visiting the Casino for a flutter. In the afternoon, we spent quite a long time enjoying the the botanic gardens and the sunshine. We returned to the hotel for a short rest before spending the evening wandering around the night markets. We bought self-serve chinese takeaway and delicious fruit pancakes rolled into a cone shape to take back to the hotel for dinner.
