Soak up a little bit of Sydney sunshine

Urbane, sophisticated and suave – well, they all mean Sydney. Yes, Australia’s most populous city and New South Wales capital has all the charms to woo a yuppie. Whether it’s the iconic Opera House or the exemplary Harbor Bridge, bustling Bondi Beach or the scintillating Darling Harbor, Sydney just amazes without a pause. The best way to relish its azure beauty is to take a ferry ride, which is a major mode of transport in the city. For some indoor fun, Sydney is home to various art galleries, museums and theatres. Soak up a little bit of Sydney sunshine at the Royal Botanic Gardens followed by coffee at Circular Quay. Drop in at Taronga Zoo for a rendezvous with Kangaroos and Koalas.
