One of the most popular destinations in the world is Sydney, Australia.

Luxury in traveling is more than just eating at fine-dining restaurants, going to one of Sydney’s finest couples day spa, or shopping at all their high-end stores.

Indeed, luxury is also about choosing which places to go to carefully, and then fully maximizing the experience. In this article, we will name a couple of destinations that you might want to check out to experience the finer things in Sydney.

Visit the popular Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains is one of the Australia’s most popular destinations. It offers a lush green setting, the perfect respite from all the buildings and establishments you have been seeing around Sydney. The mountains were given its name because of the blue-colored haze that covers it, caused by the evaporating oil from the countless eucalyptus trees found there. You can enjoy an amazing view of the sandstone pillars of the Three Sisters and the rushing waters of the Bridal Veil Falls.

Yes, luxury is open to visiting popular attractions. Remember that luxury is also about the experience. If you are going to let a couple of other rowdy tourists ruin the magic of the trip, you might not appreciate even the best of places that are exclusive.
