Setting sail from Sydney

One or our favourite cities in the world, we love pretty much everything about Sydney. Offering outdoor living at its best, the city is known for the excellent beaches but offers so much more, including a thriving and varied food scene inspired by Asian and European flavours. Walk through the Royal Botanic Gardens and admire the amazing views of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House from Mrs Macquarie's Chair, enjoy the cafés and bars in The Rocks district, walk across the top of the Harbour Bridge (or enjoy the easier option of a view from the top of one of the stone towers) or just relax on the beach.

Don't miss

The Harbour Bridge is our favourite site in the city, whether you do the Bridge Climb Experience or tour the Pylon Lookout. It's best viewed late afternoon from the east side of Circular Quay.

Arriving in Honolulu

If the word Honolulu makes you think of deserted beaches and dusky maidens, think again! Despite its remote location in the North Pacific, Honolulu is busy busy, in particular the boisterous, touristy Waikiki beach. If you prefer to get away from the crowds, tour the rest of the island, or choose one or two of the other islands in this volcanic and contrasting island group for a change of scenery and a completely different pace. Asian influences are strong here, as you might imagine - the perfect stopping off point en route from the Far East to America.

Our tip

We would always recommend spending some time exploring the Hawaiian Islands: choose Kauai for dramatic natural beauty, Maui for great hotels and beaches, and excellent golf, or the Big Island for the amazing volcanoes.

Ways to make it better
Park Hyatt Sydney

Our favourite hotel in Sydney

So many to choose from, but we love the Park Hyatt – make sure you upgrade to a room with a view.

Jamison Valley, Blue Mountains

Around Sydney

The Blue Mountains is a beautiful area of hikes, waterfalls and unusual rock formations, and a place to learn about the Aboriginal dreamtime.

Four Seasons Hualalai, Hawaii

Where to stay in Hawaii

Very difficult to choose from the fantastic resort hotels on offer, but we think the Four Seasons Hualalai on the Big Island edges in front.
