haha.

sydney is... uh. kind of boring, when it comes to shopping. we don't have all these really cool stores, nor a very wide variety, but that's just my opinion, you might find something you fancy.

food is good in chinatown =) on friday nights at chinatown there's markets with really lovely smelling food and you'll want to try them all.

the best thing about sydney is that it's really multicultral, and there are all these different nationalities so every different culture has a restaurant and a store and an area =)

Agree with Drew; Newtown is a good bet for thrift stores and bit of culture/lifestyle.
Oxford and George Streets are the place for the more established, larger stores, such as Myer, American Apparel etc, as well as a few stores in the Queen Vic. Building. George is also home to The Metro, which always seems to have a decent band playing.

i agree, sydney is way boring.
go to melbourne instead, it has more of a cultural vibe.

Haha yeah; I'm not actually from Sydney, and I've only actually been to the Metro once, to see Mystery Jets. It was rather amusing taking note of all the weirdos and scene kids in the line. Some of them were pretty intimidating though.

- the glebe markets are great on Saturday, theres live music and some great bargains
- a few good restaurants in chinatown. my personal fav, is Wagaya (jap restaurant with awesome sashimi)
- neighboring areas to the city as well as the city itself such as pitt st mall, paddington, newtown ... is good for shopping. but would certainly depend on what you are looking for
- you may like the stores espionage and hype ...
- for cheap asian food (esp vietnamese), you could head down to Cabbramatta. but its not much of a tourists place
- must visit bondi beach for the water AND the seafood. theres a good steak restaurant there called hurricane, and a strip of clothing stores behind. theres also a seafood place on main road that has really fresh seafood and good fried mars bars
- if you are a fan of seafood, you can also make a morning visit to the fish markets
- dining is quite nice in darling harbour; a good variety of restaurants (can go upstairs to play a game of laser tag or bowling lol)

theres quite a few more places, but depends on what you're after
hope you enjoy your visit =)

Paddington. The weekly markets are fair decent for one-off pieces. There's also a shit-load of quite good stores there.

But generally I'd say Surrey Hills and Crown Street are where it's at. Minty Meets Munt night on wednesday. -stoked-

If you love chocolate and if you're anything like me...the first thing I would do in Sydney is eat one thing... Max Brenner! Mmm!!! not that I don't already get enough of it at the Gold Coast, Queensland... but the first Max Brenner that opened in Australia was in Sydney... and who can say no to chocolate?

I agree with those who say that Melbourne is better! Only because it's the fashion capital of Australia!

Have fun!!!
