Preparing your trip to Sydney: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Sydney - View From Hotel 1. You can easily reach the city center from the local airport. The most expensive way to get there is taxi (about 30 USD). Half the price is a ticket on the express train, which resides directly at the airport. Travelers with light baggage can also travel by buses; the bus ticket is 3 USD.
2. You can plan a trip at any time of the year, as there is a mild weather in Sydney 12 months of the year. Even in winter the temperature rarely drops below 18°C. However, weather changes quite quickly in Sydney, so while going for a long walk, it's best to take an umbrella. On evenings it may become really cool, so you take some warm clothes with you. Fans of a beach holiday are recommended to go on vacation from November to April.
3. The city has an excellent public transport system. Tourists who plan to move around the city actively are advised to buy a travel card; it works on all kinds of public transport, including ferry. Travel cards can be designed for a day or a week; the cost is USD 20 and 60, respectively.
4. The car rent is only for those who expect to travel outside the city. On weekdays, there are heavy traffic jams on city’s main streets, so it isn’t always convenient to travel by car. Also, drivers should be aware that free parking is very rare; the cost of a parking space in the city center is about 25 USD per hour.
5. For those who travel in a large company it will be more beneficial to use taxi services, as trips within the city are pretty cheap. Taxis are called by phone. It is almost impossible to stop the car on the street in a familiar way. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
