Whether you’re in Sydney already or planning your next trip to the biggest city in Australia, the concrete maze can be be quite daunting for many travellers. From the moment you touch down, there are so many options that it leaves you spoilt for choice. For a short weekend however, finding the best activities can be like looking for a leaf in a forest.
Luckily, we’ve compiled a quick go-to list to help you enjoy the Sydney experience.
The first thing you think when touching down is transportation, what is the fastest and best way to get to your accommodation, food, and trip started. While Uber and car rentals are decent options, Sydney’s public transport system is comprehensive and very accessible for all locations. In which case, you’ll definitely want to get an opal card and top it up to get going!
Navigating the CBD is a breeze with train stations at every major location, from which you can transfer to ferries, buses or even hop off and get on a bike to enjoy the scenery. With some of the most scenic rides in the world, you can’t beat Sydney’s transport for value.
While our southern neighbours, Melbourne wear their prided coffee scene high on their chests, Sydney has picked up on its boba/bubble tea game with stores popping up around every corner. With all these tea stores, it can be hard to distinguish the real outliers that rise above the giants of Chatime and Gongcha. That said, there are some real game-changers that will blow your world of tea:
No-Fail: Indicated in their name, you can’t go wrong with their cheese foam milk tea. Sounds crazy right? No-Fail’s been riding the wave of cheese foam milk tea since its debut in China and their range of fruit teas to milk teas make a distinct and addictive entry in this list.
CoCo: Known for their signature caramel bubble milk tea, the Taiwanese chain has been growing its loyal following across the CBD with 5 branches lined up along George St and Broadway.
The Moment: Once you get a sip of their fruit tea, the moment is a revelation. The hidden gem is tucked away in a little corner of Sussex St and gives off the vibe of an artisan cafe with its glass towers and open layout.
