Australia is so far from Europe, but that make it more interesting and more extravagance destination for European tourists. After the Olympic Games during 2000 the Australian city- Sydney became more popular within the international tourists.
If you decide to visit Sydney, you should be well-prepared for all the differences between Europe and Australia: cultural, natural, climatic, etc. Sydney will fascinate you despite the cultural distance.
Australia has subtropical climate and the unexpected rain is able always to surprise you. Best time for visiting Sydney is during its spring or autumn, i.e. during the following European intervals of months: from the beginning of September to the end of December or from the end of March to the end of June. The main disadvantage of Australia is the hard solar radiation, so European tourist should be careful and use products with strong solar protection.
Definitely, each vacation in foreign country is related to high increase of your knowledge about the foreign cultures, habits, traditions, etc. Trying the traditional food is a wonderful experience. Before you go to Sydney, you should make a research about which typical diet you want to taste. Australian restaurants will offer you their traditional meals such as a meat pie, pumpkin scones, a bush damper, anzac biscuits, the traditional meringue dessert Pavlova or a thick dark spread on toast or bread or flavouring in soups and casseroles- Vegemite.
The most famous surfing destinations globally are Sydney and Hawaii. In Sydney each tourist can enjoy sunshine, sandy beaches and ocean breeze. All aqua sports are widespread and often tourists take advantage of the professional instructors’ services. In addition to surfing, diving is very popular as well.
Usually, tropical and subtropical areas have wild nature that amazes everyone. If you visit Sydney, you should not miss to see its beautiful parks and zoo parks. There is a high diversity of species in zoos, because the animals live in an environment similar to their natural one.
Sydney is a popular destination, but few Europeans can afford it. The plane tickets are expensive, the hotels- as well.
