Well known for its architectural beauty and the origin of a world famous cuisine Paella, city of Valencia has a vast spread coastal line. The night beach clubs and shacks will remind you of Goa.
We were in Valencia for just an evening before getting on to the flight to Ibiza.
The bus trip from Madrid to Valencia was scenic. Valencia is 4 hours drive from Madrid with awesome countryside landscapes and windmills on the hills.
We arrived at the Expo hotel, Valencia.
It was dinner time and we were starving. We decided to visit El Corte Ingles where we found a Istanbul resto bar. The decor had a middle east touch with soft Arabic music in the background.
We had the yummiest Pizza of our last 5 days in Spain.
Filled with vegetables and layers of cheese served in a huge pan, it was lavish.
And then we headed to the most popular attraction of Valencia – the convention center. On the way we spotted nature at its best in the city. It was almost dark before we could spot three color shades in the sky.
1. Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia – Art and Science Museum
2. IMAX 3D Cinema dome
3. Business Convention Center
4. Europe’s largest aquarium – L’Oceanographic
There was a rock concert going on in the premises of the convention center and few stalls were set up around the place. There was a Moroccan Tea Stall which displayed variety of flavors and offered a free traditional tea glass in different colors and with beautiful designs printed on it. We bought one.
On the way back we stopped at the city center for an hour to enjoy the beautiful architecture of the city lit up in halogen lights. There was a cathedral bell which rang at 12 am and the sound was magical.
We had chosen Hotel Expo for the amazing view from its terrace of the city and it was exactly what we expected.
We didn’t get a chance to explore Valencia but the short stay was worthwhile.
