    Is this a good time to visit Australia?

    yes, that's what the Matta fair top guy is encouraging claiming the lower exchange rate for aussie dollar.
    What's your take?

    it's true to some extent... AUD is at 2.40 now... a trip to Australia and NZ will be perfect, since NZ is at 1.80 when last year it was at 2.70 I think?

    But it's not only the exchange rate, now with AirAsia it's dirt cheap to go. You can fly return to Melbourne at just RM354 nett when AA offered their free flights.

    Of coz it's a good time. It's his job to convince you.

    Ultimately it will be your choice of whether spending this sum of money will affect you in this economic downturn.

    Please ignore the stupid Hong Leong ad of borrowing money to travel. That will mean disaster later on.

    Well guys, our own RM has just plunged big time and so it is not value for money to travel now.
