Sydney is one of the most respected cities amongst tourists and backpackers. It has multiple personalities and lives up to the expectations of all kinds of travelers. This hugely photogenic city has some of the most enchanting locations and landmarks which will definitely have a spellbinding impact on your mind.
To speak of the attractions, here are the top 5 things you should do in this city:
i. Visiting Sydney Opera House: Sydney Opera House epitomizes the city’s undying love for music. At the same time it highlights a unique architecture and forms a stunning imagery with the Sydney Harbour as its backdrop. It also lies in the vicinity of Sydney Harbour Bridge and The Rocks. All these three attractions are clubbed together in most Australia tour packages.
ii. Have fun at the Bondi Beach: Bondi Beach is the best beach which Sydney has to offer. Its beauty and sophistication has also been chronicled in Chetan Bhagat’s best-selling book ‘3 Mistakes of My Life’ which was recently made into a film titled ‘Kai Po Che’.
iii. Exploring Chinatown: Australia, like Singapore, has its own Chinatown which is the hub for shoppers and diners. It is also home to local Chinese community and is a paradise for the culture-hunters.
iv. Boarding the ferry to Manly: Tour packages always try to include a ferry ride to Manly. The picturesque background and the serene water of the harbour is a definite breath-stealer.
v. Checking out the Royal Botanic Gardens: Royal Botanic Gardens have a special place in the hearts of the nature lovers. Apart from being a tranquil place, it also offers a peek into the close world of plants and flowers. It is congenially nested beside the Sydney Opera House and can be thus included easily in your sightseeing plans.
All these attractions are must-visit even if your Sydney tour is going to be a 2-day affair.
