Picture an enormous, easygoing seaside town. There are surfers riding the waves and beach bums lazing on the sands. Add to this landscape a horizon lined with skyscrapers and iconic landmarks like an out-of-this-world opera house and a famously stunning bridge. Stare at the trendy cosmopolitan set of sun-kissed and fashion-forward, making their way to photo shoots, architecture firms and cafés. And of course you must hear their conversation: Even their English is laidback, unlike that of the stuffy Brits or sometimes-brash American accents. The most populated city in Australia, Sydney is a natural choice for a first-time Oz visit. With its lovely beaches, world-class restaurants, and abundance of interesting things to do, Sydney’s personality is a mix of carefree Australia and sophisticated metropolis. So, whether you want a laid-back vacation surfing the giant waves of the Tasman Sea or a high-octane trip of dining, shopping, and partying, Sydney’s got you covered
