About the country, what i gathered from like 8 hours spent there;

Vienna, such a beautiful place with old buildings with amazing architecture everywhere. I cant one ugly building.

People: they can speak enough English, better than the other countries i’ve visited.

Food: i didnt try much but Austrian coffee was good. Perfect. I wonder why i lost most appetite when i travel. I didnt lose any kg though.

Convenience: Public transportation is very cheap and there are trams everywhere. Walking can be very tiring but taking the metro and tram made sighseeing easier.

It is also quite a touristy place even in this non-seasonal period.

Tips: Get a good map of the city with the metro and tram maps. (this is for all countries, but not all country’s Tourist Information Centre is useful)
