This post will be about the last day of my holiday in Switzerland.
We didn’t wake up early since it’s already the last day of the trip. Our plan for the day was just to walk around the area near Zurich HB station and then return to the airport in the evening.
Here’s a few pictures of hotel lobby and bar. I am not a morning person and will usually be very grumpy, but the bright colors made me feel happy.
We topped CHF 15 each for the breakfast. Similar to the hotel in St. Moritz, the breakfast spread was mainly bread, cheese, ham, fruits and cereals.
I am so used to having Nutella spread in Singapore, so when I saw Ovomaltine spread, I got so fascinated. LOL~
I tried this liver butter spread and fell in love with it! I took this picture so that I can set off to hunt for it when I get back to Singapore. If only butter doesn’t melt, then I would have air flown them back.
After breakfast, we checked out and stored our luggage at the hotel. It took us only 20-30 mins to get to Zurich HB station via shuttle bus and train. We bought the train tickets at CHF 6+ each and it is valid for 1 day for all SBB transports within the stated area. I didn’t do research for cheaper tickets since we were only there for 1 day.
The temperature was only 7°C in the morning, so I used up the remaining heat packs which Pakcik brought.
Yea, that’s another thing I like about Europe: Pets are allowed on public transport. Try doing this in Singapore, and I bet you will be rejected at the door. I really wonder what’s the big fuss about pets in public. It’s not as if some wild kids are cleaner or quieter than the domestic pets.
It started to drizzle, so we seek shelter in the shopping mall.
OMG! Look at all the yummilicious food in the mall! I wished I hadn’t had breakfast! Pakcik had to drag me away from the counters and lured me into my other favorite place: Supermarket.
We went to the Migros supermarket. The first thing that attracted my attention was the trolley for kids! That’s so unfair!! Why didn’t supermarkets have such stuff when I was a child???
Look at the little girl, I bet she enjoyed her titbits shopping.
This is why I LOVE supermarkets. They have all sorts of stuff which aren’t imported to Singapore. The tomato looked so interesting, I wonder how it tastes…
I was comparing the prices of sun-dried tomatoes and peppers. Sigh… imports really cause price hikes. It’s just like how expensive a bottle of Asian soy sauce cost in Zurich…
We have chocolates in Singapore, but we don’t have racks after racks of chocolates like this! SK declared chocolates spree on the spot. Even Pakcik couldn’t resist and joined in.
Finally, we made it out of the supermarket with Pakcik’s bag pack filled with chocolates. We walked down Bahnhofstrasse where all the luxury watches and stuff are sold.
Yep, my eyes popped out.
Then, it was Pakcik’s turn to have his eyes popped out.
A street of luxury cars. Many tourists stopped to take photos too. =)
At the end of Bahnhofstrasse is the Zurich lake.
Here are some pictures to share.
The birds seemed so used to getting food from people, hence they hung around the jetty.
The little ducklings were so cute~!
We walked by the jetty and found more swans and ducklings.
After parting with the birds, we strolled down the other side of the street.
In the late afternoon, we went to Burger King at the train station. Pakcik was craving for the juicy beef burger since he last had it in Serravalle Designer Outlet.
I can’t really remember, but I think we ordered the Double Steakhouse BBQ Cheeseburger meal (CHF 16).
Although the meal is pricey, the burger is huge. It’s almost as big as my fat face~
Sorry for the ugly bitten burger.
The burger was really yummy because the patty was tender and juicy. Comparing to the BK burger in Zurich, I think the size for the burgers in Singapore is way too small. It just keeps shrinking every year but the price never seem to stop increasing.
Anyway, after we checked in for my flight, I dragged Pakcik to Marche for dinner. I told him that I will not rest in peace if I don’t get to try Marche in Switzerland.
The sausage tasted great! So juicy and flavorful~
As for the rosti, it’s quite bland so I think the one in Marche Singapore tastes better. For the 3 items, it cost about CHF 36.
And that’s all for my short 7 days trip. The meal on board Swiss air was more or less the same. I still love the cheese and bread~
