Sydney is a popular destination for travelers all around the world. It offers a varitey of different opportunities for travel lovers – a big city, beautiful beaches, nice parks, and plenty of attractions nearby. For many of us, the downfalls of visiting Sydney is that it’s so far away. If coming from the US or Europe, travelers can spend several days of their vacation just getting to and from Australia, so it might not make sense to go all the way across the world for a short vacation.
This is part of the reason why you should consider adding Sydney to your itinerary if you are planning a trip around the world. Long term, RTW travel gives you the freedom of having time, so who cares if it takes you several days of flying to get there. Time is on your side, so traveling to Sydney as part of your RTW trip gives you an opportunity that you may not otherwise have.
