This is part of a new series of blog posts that I want to try out with readers. I’ll definitely need your help. We’ll pick destinations in the US and around the world and share our favorite things to do there. And, if you’ve never been there, you can still help out by sharing the things on your bucket list for our current destination. Got it?
If You Had One Day In Sydney, Australia
I picked Sydney because I had essentially one great day there on my first trip Down Under. When I asked folks for their suggestions on my podcast, I used Sydney as my example. Here goes:
If I had one day in Sydney, I’d be staying at the Park Hyatt. I’d wake up early, mostly because my body clock would be all messed up. I’d start with a walk along the water to a ferry-boat landing. If I was up early enough, I’d hop on a ferry-boat before there was really anyone stirring, while the city is still sleeping. That was such an awesome experience for me.
Standing outside, I’d watch as the ferry-boat whisked me by the various landmarks, starting near the Opera House and ending in Darling Harbour. Then, I’d make my way to Bridge Climb, towering over the city with some the most amazing views you’ve ever seen.
After that, I’d walk through the city, exploring the nooks and crannies. If it was the weekend, I would peruse the markets in the Rocks near the Park Hyatt. After all was said and done, I’d get in line early for dinner at Mr. Wong. I’d have some prawns with pork belly in a chili, black bean and garlic sauce. Id think about ordering some duck. And, I’d definitely add on some fried rice.
That’s what I’d do if I had one day in Sydney. And, I’d have a darn good time doing it.
Here’s Where I Need Your Help
This can’t be all about me. I need your help. Especially because there are so many great destinations I’ve never been to yet. I would never have done Bridge Climb in Sydney if it hadn’t been for the help of my friend, Michael. He suggested it to me a few weeks before my trip. I love getting tips like that.
So, what are some of your favorite things to do in Sydney? If you’ve never been, what are you dreaming of doing when you do get there?
And, what cities would you like to see myself and others weigh in on? Let’s have some fun with this!
