3. Sydney, Australia
Sydney is often mistaken as the capital of Australia (that’s Canberra) but it is definitely one of the most beautiful cities in the “Land Down Under.” It’s focal point is the Sydney Opera House, one of the most architecturally impressive buildings in the world. It is flanked by the scenic Sydney Harbour Bridge and near to the cobblestoned historical neighborhood of “the Rocks.” The city’s coastal positioning only adds to its aesthetic appeal. But Sydney is not all about its looks. Dig deeper and you’ll find a diverse cosmopolitan city with a world-class energy worth exploring.
