I am an avid traveler and have visited many cities across India and other countries for work and leisure purposes. My favorite city out of the ones that I have visited is Sydney. A major city in Australia, it is the state capital of New South Wales. It is situated on the southeastern coast of Australia near the Tasman Sea and is home to around 4.6 million people. I traveled to this city in 2013 after my high school for a vacation.
This city has many attractions and there are many reasons for my fondness. A veritable collection of beaches, natural areas, botanic gardens, parks, and high rising buildings add to its beauty. This city has many heritage buildings and landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House, Harbor Bridge, and the observatory.
It is known for the dynamic cultural hub and houses many famous museums and art galleries with great architecture. The weather is pleasant all round the year, and the views are beautiful.
The best part is the city planning and public services. I found the transportation services to be affordable and highly effective. The city is very well planned and it is very easy to commute or reach different places. People there are friendly and welcoming, and help the tourists with many things.
The city is lively and vibrant and offers a lot of other things to do apart from sightseeing. In my limited time there, I tried to visit as many places as possible, and soaked in the beauty of the marvelous places that I went to. I would visit this city again whenever I get an opportunity.
