Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Sydney Fish Market and Queen Victoria Building. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sydney Opera House and The Rocks. Go for a jaunt from Sydney to Blacktown to see Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park about 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Darling Harbour, enjoy the sand and surf at Bondi Beach, stroll through Manly Beach, and observe the fascinating underwater world at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Sydney day trip planner.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to Sydney is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Ho Chi Minh City to Sydney due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Ho Chi Minh City in January, you will find days in Sydney are little chillier (32°C), and nights are about the same (23°C). Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 28th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Melbourne.
