When people visit Sydney, one of the first things that they notice is the beauty of the city itself. Everything just seems so synchronized, organized and in perfect harmony. Starting from the architecture and the way the streets are laid out, everything about Sydney is just beautiful. It’s a huge city, with a lot of people in it, but it doesn’t feel that way. You don’t get those chaotic vibes that you usually do in over-crowded places. The streets are wide, and you have a lot of room to “breathe” and enjoy the atmosphere of this beautiful place.
Sydney is beautiful during every stage of the day. Sunrises are epic, especially if you’re looking at them from a higher point, and the same thing goes for sunsets, especially if you are on one of the many beaches there. If you want to relax your mind and experience a lot of “eye-candy”, this place needs to be on top of your travel list.
Sydney is known to be one of the few cities that have extremely tasty food, and not just one kind of it. If you are a fan of street food, you can easily find that on every corner in this city. If you want elite restaurants and perfectly prepared meals by professional cooks, you can have that as well, it’s what the city is known for.
Australians have a lot of specialties when it comes to food, and unless you’re visiting for more than a week, chances are that you won’t even be able to try all of them. The barbeque is one of the best things that you’ll ever eat, and it isn’t even that expensive!
A city for everyone
Sydney is so great because it offers an enjoyable experience for any type of person. If you want to relax by the beach and enjoy some silence and nature, it’s achievable. If you want to party hard and experience Sydney’s nightlife you have many places for that as well. Or, you can have a combination of both worlds. Whatever it is that you want to do, you can do it in this city. Museums, cinemas, and restaurants with a very rich historical value are waiting for your arrival.
It is already well-known that Australian people are one of the friendliest that you can meet, which means that you will have a great trip even if you are traveling alone and you don’t know anyone in Sydney. Everyone that you’re going to meet is most likely going to be very excited to show you around or tell you a few interesting stories about the place. Don’t be afraid to say Hi and socialize!
Failing to visit this place while in Sydney means that you’ve lost half of the excitement of the entire trip. This area is the busiest and also most visited one in the entire city, and there is a very good reason why. There are no cars here, which means that the atmosphere is really quiet and peaceful since everyone is going on foot, but that’s just a bonus.
The main thing about Circular Quay is that you will be able to see a lot of important objects in Sydney with just one circle around it. You can have a great view of the Bridge, the Harbor, the famous Opera House and some of the Royal Botanic Gardens that will leave you breathless.
Or, you might also be interested in Sydney Private Tours, which are always a great choice if you want to learn as much as you can about the city. They include trips to the Blue Mountains which are a must-visit for anyone that loves untouched nature and complete Zen.
The Opera House
We mentioned this earlier, but taking a look at it from the outside is completely different than going inside and enjoying a show. If you want mind-blowing experience in one of Australia’s most signature objects, definitely visit the famous Opera House. Even if you don’t catch a show while you’re visiting, you can still spend some time around the object and enjoy the beautiful look of the Harbor.
Visiting the Zoo – Taronga
The Taronga Zoo in Sydney is a great place where you can spend some time both alone or with your kids. If you are coming from a country where the zoos are not advanced, you’ll now have a chance to visit a top-tier zoo with almost every animal that you can think of. And yes, they have giraffes. Besides, during the entire Zoo-tour, you will have a great view of the city, and this is especially breath-taking if you go during the night.
Sydney is known to have a lot of beautiful beaches, so if you want to enjoy the warm sun and feel the waves touching your feet, you know where to go. Which beach you’re going to choose is completely up to you, because they all offer something different. The two very famous ones are Manly and Bondi, and you can do all sorts of activities while being there. You can even learn how to surf if you are more into the extreme sports, but have in mind that this will take you a lot longer than you’ve expected, it’s a pretty complicated sport after all.
No matter what beach in Sydney you’re going to visit, you’ll always see something interesting and have a great time.
