Where is your city?
What’s the cheapest way to enjoy this city at night?
Just go for a walk around town! Start in Chinatown for a cheap bite, there’s so much on offer, I cannot even tell you where to start, and it’s all pretty cheap! Finish off with a nitrogen icecream at N2 Gelato which is also located in the Chinatown/Haymarket area. For cheap souvenirs head to Paddy’s Market, again, in the same area. Then make your way down to the water to Darling Harbour where you can enjoy free fireworks which starts from 8.30pm on most Saturdays. So romantic! Afterwards walk along the water and cross over to the Circular Quay area where you can see the illuminated Harbour Bridge and the world-famous Opera House. You can walk all the way to Mrs Macquaries Point from which you will have the best views of the skyline, the harbour, the Bridge and the Opera House.
What’s your favorite restaurant here? What’s so special about it?
My favourite restaurant in Sydney, one that I would always pick for visitors to the city, is the O Bar which is a revolving restaurant on top of one of the tallest buildings in the city. It takes around 90mins for the restaurant to make a complete turn, plenty of time to dine and enjoy the views. If you time it well, you get to see Sydney from its prettiest site, when the sun sets in the west. Then the lights will come on, so romantic! Oh, besides, the food is outstanding and first-class, fresh, modern and absolutely delicious.
What’s your favorite thing to do on a warm Sunday morning in this city?
Sydney is the place where you want to be on warm Sunday mornings, because you can go to the beach for a quick swim, or a surf. This is what most Sydneysiders will do. If the weather is not warm enough, which does happen!, just settle in a chair in one of the cafes along the many Sydney beaches for a nice brunch and a good cup of coffee. Sydneysiders love their food and their coffees!
What were some of the hidden gems in that city? Why?
Not many tourists would know that Newtown is the best place to be for an eclectic mix of fashion, quirky things, cool cafes and lots of street art. For something different, there is the Australiana village on the outskirts which is a collection of old cottages found in the region, re-arranged into an authentic village which also doubles as a backdrop for historic TV shows. Speaking of TV, Bare Island is occupied by a historic fort and is in a very dramatic location which was used for Mission Impossible II. Well worth a visit!
