Sydney, one of the most popular coastal cities in the world, is a famed tourist haven, famous for its beautiful waterfront and housing around seventy beaches across the city.

With world-famous attractions like the Opera house, Harbour bridge and many more, this capital of New South Wales is a must-see destination if you're around Australia. This is an account of the few places anyone can stop by for a good time.

Sydney Harbour

With a sparkling waterfront setting, Sydney is most famous for its harbour-side cruising. Cruising and Sydneysiders go hand in hand and it is the best way to combine the water activities and other entertainment which is also offered in the harbour. The Sydney lunch cruise is the most sought out among the cruising experiences. There are numerous apex cruise operators across the shoreline who provide all types of vessels at reasonable prices. Sydney’s newest and only glass boat is a deluxe cruise, which provides an uninterrupted 360° view of the harbour. Every seat feels like a window seat with its floor-to-ceiling windows. All the cruises offer a variety of menus which are freshly prepared and served hot for the customers at the vast dining space and this cruise in particular offers a seafood and meat inspired banquet menu including the chef’s specialties. There is also an option for a vegetarian course meal. This glass boat with it’s Sky Deck and a mezzanine lounge in the second level which is optimal for cocktail parties provide the best atmosphere for sightseeing along the world-famous Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Fully licensed bars with premium beer and wines to uplift your spirits are also served on board. It is safe to assume that this exquisite vessel offers the best lunch cruise in Sydney.

The Rocks

The Rocks is one of Sydney’s most visually stunning places combining the cobblestoned laneway and age old colonial history with some of the city's most modern dining spots, bars, boutiques and cafes. It’s one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Sydney accommodating buildings even from the 1800s. But the place is not just filled with old monuments, the Rock Discovery Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art contains works of domestic and international artists including ancient artefacts and exhibitions which invites almost a million viewers every year. Another great value for money spot is The Glenmore Hotel, that has a rooftop above the three flights of stairs which provides panoramic views of the Sydney Harbour. This might be one of the best backdrops if you're hanging out with your loved ones sharing the sparkling drinks and delicious cuisines. The Rocks laneways will be crowded with people of all origins during the weekends because of the opening of the Rocks Markets. Running between 10am and 5pm, the market becomes a platform for local fashion, handcrafted jewellery, talented artisans and food stands. This quaint site is undoubtedly one of the most overlooked locations in Sydney, so be on the map next time.

Opera House

The next location needs little introduction, one of the world’s greatest icons, the Sydney Opera House is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a quintessential attraction of the busy harbour. This masterclass of a building is shaped like huge sea-shells making it one of the most photographed buildings in the world. The Opera House is a multi-purpose arts performing facility which has hosted symphony concerts, choir performances and popular music shows as well. Not just music, but exhibitions, theatres, studios and cinema can also be found inside for your convenience. The building is undergoing a huge upgradation so the timing currently might be limited to 9am to 5pm.
