Knowing how much Australia has to offer and how little time we had, it's difficult to decide which places to go. Australia is big, and we only had 10 days to explore Australia. Getting to know Australia will be a difficult task. With that in mind, we narrowed it down to three: Sydney, Melbourne, and Tasmania.
The Harbour City, Sydney, is known as the largest, oldest, and most beautiful city in Australia. Sydney is a multicultural city. You could easily notice the differences in race, culture, art, fashion, and cuisine in the city.
There are plenty of things to do in Sydney. First of all, it would be strange to visit Sydney without making a trip to Circular Quay and look at two Australia’s most recognizable icons: The Harbour Bridge and The Opera House.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge, the world's largest steel arch bridge. Built by 1400 men over eight years, the bridge was opened in 1932.
If you want to experience something different, you can go to the BridgeClimb and climb to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It's not as scary as I imagined. It's a very interesting experience, and you could see the sunrise or the sunset from the top.
I've been there once. ^^
Close to them is the Royal Botanic Gardens. You can take a walk, have a picnic, take a bike ride, watch seagulls, or you can just lie on the grass, have a short nap and enjoy the weather.
Or you could just bring Danbo out to enjoy some fresh air.
Take a ferry ride to enjoy a different view of the harbour from the deck.
You don't need to worry about food in Sydney. There are plenty of restaurants offering all kinds of menus to suit your taste from Asian to Western cuisines. For Asian restaurants, I recommend eating at Chat Thai or Mamak. For chocolate lover, too bad there is no Koko Black in Sydney. :(
Mamak's mee goreng. A must try food.

With all that Sydney has to offer, who doesn't love Sydney ?
