A Quick Stop in Sydney

In my previous posts, I promised I’d be writing an in depth blog on the places I visited during my Australia – New Zealand trip. So as promised, first off the list is Sydney!

Sydney, often mistakenly known as the capital of Australia, is my first stop in my Australia – New Zealand trip! Thanks to Cebu Pacific’s cheap direct flights to Sydney, I Ray Ban sale was able to save a lot on airfare costs. This is actually my second time in Sydney, so I figured to just stay for a day. But even if it’s just a stopover, there’s really some places that I couldn’t resist visiting during my short stay in Sydney!

#OOTD Part 2

 

1. First off, would be Darling Harbour

This harbor right in the heart of Sydney offers a lot of attractions from restaurants to picturesque views, and even some interesting museums. Sydney is actually home to a diverse culture making its food choices one of my favorites. Just off Darling Harbor is Chinatown, where different Asian cuisines such as Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, and Japanese food are served. Well, if you’re on a budget then this is the right place to grab a quick lunch.

This is a typical Vietnamese meal that we ate for just around 10 AUD, which is cheap given how high the cost of living in Australia is! This is located in Chinatown just near Darling Harbour!

Located right in the middle of Darling Harbour are some Fake Oakleys interesting museums which are worth the visit especially when it’s your first time notably Madame Tussauds and Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. If you have more time, I suggest getting the 4-attraction pass. For just 63 AUD, you’re already given access to both Madame Tussauds and Sea Life plus Sydney Eye Tower and Wild Life. Not bad!

Since I was there just for a day, I chose to just stroll along the harbor taking some photo-worthy shots with the yachts parked by the bay. It’s really a nice place to just chill and take in the sea breeze on a sunny afternoon.

2. Next off would be, Sydney Central Business District

Sydney is actually Australia’s largest city, making it mandatory Cheap Jerseys From China to walk around it’s central buisness district. The city itself is actually littered with buildings, but of course the more interesting ones would be jordans for cheap the 19th century YWXLight Queen Victoria Building along George St. Both the interior and exterior architecture, for me, is worth the visit! Plus, it’s actually a shopping mall. A good place to hang around CBD is around Pitt St., where countless malls and the Sydney Eye Tower are located.

3. My last stop would be the Sydney Opera House and the Darling Harbour Bridge

A trip to Sydney is never complete without a visit to Australia’s most iconic structure the Sydney Opera House. It’s always a good idea to take profile pictures here on a good weather.

What I love about the Opera House is that you can actually take photos of it in different angles and it will still look amazing!

Another bucketlist must be spending New Year ’s Eve in this area on December 31. Not bad to be one of the 1st to spend New Year in a foreign country!  Surreal to be spending New Year’s eve in one of the most iconic New Year’s Eve Celebration.

Other side trips:

Sydney is also well known for its beaches, so if you have extra time, I suggest you visiting Bondi Beach and the Icebergs. Also, other noteworthy beaches would be Manly Beach and Cogee Beach. Both offering breathtaking views of the Australian coast! We ran out of time during our one day visit, but trust me the views during the day are worth it! It’s just an Uber or Bus Ride away from Sydney CBD. It will probably take just around 15-20 minutes to get the beach front!
