MUNICH, GERMANY. In Germany, beer is about the same price as water and day drinking is commonly more accepted here than in any other parts of the world. Because they are huge fans of beer, it is no surprise that they had been able to produce 1500 different brands and perhaps more. This fact makes it harder for people to pick just one to try out. With beer embedded not just in their culture but also in their veins, beer halls and beer gardens are normal things to see around Bavaria.
MUNICH, GERMANY. I have no idea what Uyghur cuisine was so when we found Taklamakan restaurant near the Hauptbahnhof and in the middle of the Bahnhofsviertel bearing a text above the store name referring to an unfamiliar cuisine, we got so curious we immediately barged inside the restaurant without thinking twice. Uyghur cuisine which is also called Xinjiang cuisine is found throughout China.
MUNICH, GERMANY. Marking the start of our Imperial Europe tour, we checked in in the chic Sheraton Munich Arabellapark. Taking the S-bahn once again to reach this part of Munich, we arrived in Arabellapark in no time. The hotel is just a few minutes walk away from the S-bahn station which made the transfer quite easy.
MUNICH, GERMANY. The moment we stepped out of the train and into the large platform of the Hauptbahnhof, the first thing I thought about was FOOD. Not because I was hungry per se but because of the endless options of tummy delights they have there. So if you are thinking of putting off any food intake until you arrive at the Hauptbahnhof, these are just some of the choices you will find when you arrive there
MUNICH, GERMANY. With a huge consideration that our hotel should just be near the main station (Hauptbahnhof) of Munich, we booked two rooms in Winters Hotel located along Arnulfstrasse.
Why near the Hauptbahnhof, you ask? Because we thought that since we would be arriving during the Christmas holidays when most of the restaurants and establishments are closed, then it would be best if we just stay near the main station so that we could just go out of the area and catch a train ride to a nearby town whenever we please.
NEAR MUNICH, GERMANY. Running out immediately of things to do may be impossible to happen when you are in Munich but if ever that happens, here is a day-trip idea that may catch your fancy.
MUNICH, GERMANY. It was not a spur-of-the-moment decision that I was in Munich during Christmas Day. I was there because Munich was the starting point of the 2-week tour that my family and I joined in. Anyhow, I will discuss more about that as we go along!
MUNICH, GERMANY. With a distance of 36 kilometers, getting to the Munich city center is still a 30 to 45-minute ride from the airport. There were a lot of transportation options available to get to the city center. There's the bus, car rentals, hotel shuttles which you can request from the hotel where you will stay in, taxis (which cost about EUR 70 for a 33-kilometer ride) but we chose the most economical of all without taking too much time and without being so tedious to use: the S-bahn.

9:20 PM - Fifteen minutes after we requested a car through Uber, the drivers were already texting us that they were already near our place. We went down the elevator and wheeled our big luggages out of the cold, December evening excited for the next days to come. It was our first trip ever as a family outside of Asia and we could not be more excited about it!
