Valencia 2011 Day 3 – Last day!

Valencia 2011 Day 3 – Last day!

Saturday, January 7, 2012 by Wendy Lam

I finally got around to editing the rest of my Valencia trip photos from November 2011 (lazy me), seems like a long time but it was just a couple of months ago. On the last day of my trip, it was another full day of activities.

Early in the morning I was invited to the City of Arts and Sciences, the architecture of the place was simply amazing, even just from the outside. I had a guided tour around the Science Museum Príncipe Felipe, Hemisfèric (Imax Dome, Planetarium), Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia (Opera House), Agora, Umbracle and Oceanographic. My favorite part was the Oceanogràfic, it is the largest aquarium in Europe, pretty amazing! After the long tour, I had lunch at the Restaurante Submarino at L’Oceanografic (inside Oceanographic). It was a great scene, I ate my Lobster Paella underground, surrounded by marine life behind the glass. It felt like I was inside a big aquarium, loved it.

Then onto Bioparc, one of the best zoos I’ve been to so far. Most of the animals are not enclosed in glass or cages, they seem to be able to run freely in a big space like their natural habitats. I felt the closeness to the animals, I think this is the closest I’ve seen some of the animals. Really a must go if you’re in Valencia. After the zoo, I had some time to kill before dinner. So sat down at Valor for some hot chocolate and churros.

I was seriously pooped by the time all this was done but I had a dinner to attend to, VLC made a really good choice and invited me to Seu Xerea by Stephen Anderson. I really enjoyed the food there, it was really good. Defnitely the best meal I’ve had in Valencia. I had a good time in Valencia, it was a different experience from my other trips, although small but very interesting.
