Know before you go on a trip to Sydney

Six days is a long time to spend and with the wonderful, but slightly unpredictable weather of Sydney, it is always recommended that you go prepared. So, dress according to the weather, carry some warm clothes for the evenings and elegant attire for some fine places that you may want to explore. In case you want to enjoy some adventure or sport activities, dress comfortably! Keep a tiny backpack with all your essentials like water bottle, meds, camera and all that you may need while you traverse through Sydney. Any amount of time is less to experience the magic of Sydney. Having said that, 6 days is enough to get a glimpse of the culture that is hidden beneath the “touristy” spots. Indulge in walking or biking tours, nature stays, restaurant hopping and other such offbeat activities. Keep your plan flexible and make the most of these days in Sydney.
