When planning your first trip to Sydney, it may be easy to become distracted by all of the sights you plan to see and places to visit without thinking about your travel itinerary. The city’s bus transportation isn’t exactly reliable, so planning a chartered transportation service would be useful to move around — whether it’s a bus or a luxury coach for hire in Sydney.
If you plan to explore the city on a budget, then getting an Opal card should be first on your checklist on the day you arrive in the city. You will need this to pay for public transit, such as trains and ferries. Unlike other card-based payments, you need to tap it on when you board and off when you get off. This will prevent you from incurring the highest amount of charges for your trip.
Local shops in the city also open as early as six in the morning, so it’s good news for early birds. For this reason, most shops also close for business at an earlier time. Plan your purchases accordingly to avoid the inconvenience of seeing “closed” signs.
More people from the U.S. will visit not only Sydney, but also the rest of the country. Australia ranked as the top “ultimate dream international destination” among Americans, according to a survey of more than 3,300 people.
Data from Tourism Australia reflects this trend with 553,000 American tourists paying a visit to Australia in 2014. Even if you’re an experienced traveller, having an itinerary will help in narrowing the down the best places to see and things to do in the world’s largest island.
Transportation plans should be among your priorities since you’re moving around in an unfamiliar place. Aside from safety, a chartered service offers a more comfortable way for first-time tourists to explore Sydney.
