My pick of urban observatory decks – First, the city itself has to have unique and spectacular cityscape for the viewers to appreciate; Secondly, the observatory deck has to offer the best angle of the iconic landmarks with the backdrop of the stunning skyline. Therefore, some of the choices are tough and they might not be the landmark itself. Instead – they are my “even better” choices.
We explored the south of Perth and jumped out of a plane in Busselton the other day. The next day, we hopped on our rental car and headed north for another excursion to the Pinnacles desert, and I will be the one driving.
The Sydney Harbor is one of the largest natural harbors in the world, and the city thrives on it. There are lots of amazing spots a traveler would explore! As I was flipping through my photos during my BridgeClimb experience, I thought I would give myself a reminder of some of the favorite places around the harbor.
The Blue Mountains is a mountain range located in New South Wales, Australia, and it’s a popular attraction for tourists in Sydney. Although to me, the scenery is not the most jaw-dropping sight as compared with other famous scenic sites in the world, the mountain has its own specialty and a coal mining history that hold dear to the native Australian. The Blue Mountains was named for a reason – Do you know why the Blue Mountains are blue?
Australia. A day to remember as we visited some adorable creatures & jumped out from a plane! It was my very first (and not sure if it would be my only) time signed up for a skydiving experience but it was something that I always wanted to do.
Watarrka National Park was a amazing. For 3.5 hours, we enjoyed the breathtaking view and a geology lesson about how the wondrous mother nature. Why the rocks have ripples? Why they are beehive-like domes? What to pack for the three-day tours in the outback?
Wayoutback 3-day tour in Australia Day 2: Uluru Sunrise, Kata Tjuta, The Valley of the Winds and Kings Creek Station. We walked through Kata Tjuta & camping under the amazing starry sky… and flashback of sunset in Alice Springs!
There were mixed things that I heard about climbing Uluru. Before I went, I learned that climbing Uluru was not allowed because it’s considered sacred; but then my friend told me it’s actually allowed. So… to climb, or not to climb?
Walking in the city of Sydney feels like a vacation already. Fabulous sunshine. Comforting harbor breeze. Relaxing city vibe. No wonder the city has been constantly voted one of the most livable and beautiful cities in the world. The city is so well-developed yet it is very close to nature – Sydney’s city center is merely 20-minute away from the Bondi Beach and an hour away from the Blue Mountains. So here, I am sharing a few “Snapshots” of the city that visitor could do during their stay in town.
The Sydney harbor is a beautiful, spectacular natural harbor in the world. The stunning coastline and remarkable architecture amazed me when I first saw the photos in travel books as a 5-year-old kid. But of course, the harbor had dramatic changes since then – more and more skyscrapers were built along the coast to cope …
