If you happen to know someone who’s organizing a stag party anytime soon, make sure to give him the idea to travel to Sydney with all his guy friends, as he will definitely have the time of his life. But what does the most popular city of the Down Under have that other cities don’t? And what are all the things one can do there that they cannot do in other cities? Well, unless you are a calm, quiet person and not at all adventurous, take a look at these five reasons why you should visit one of the best cities in the world:
Visiting the Sydney Opera House
Even though this is a cliché tip, it would be such a shame to visit Sydney and not see this legendary place. Yes, you’re on an all-male trip and maybe don’t want to visit the landmarks of Sydney, but this will not take much of your time (and who knows – since many tourists come there, maybe you’ll see someone worth flirting with there). You can also take all your friends, hit the outdoor Opera Bar and have a glass of champagne while catching a glimpse of landing planes. Allocate an hour or two for this experience that you will definitely not regret.
The dining scene of Sydney is everything but boring. Sydney is the home to many diverse and luxurious restaurants – some are so popular and good that you will have to book your table months in advance. Since dudes love greasy and strong food, there is a plethora of restaurants that all guys should visit once they come to Sydney. If you’re in for a real guy experience, make sure to visit the Oxford Tavern Black Betty that was once a topless bar and is still decorated in such a way. On the plus side, Sydney does indeed have it all. If you want a hipster experience then head to Della Hyde where you will find yourself in a traditional and chill environment and try their famous steamed dumplings.
If Sydney is rich in restaurants and places to eat, can you imagine what it offers when it comes to going out and partying? Apart from the popular clubs where you can party literally all night long, Sydney is known for its very original themed parties that are organized throughout the city. If you are bold enough, try a poker tournament, but not just any poker tournament, but one where you will see the most beautiful topless poker dealers in Sydney and probably all of Australia. This is definitely one of the must-try experiences as this chance might not come again. It doesn’t matter if you’re single or taken; playing poker while beautiful topless chicks deal the cards for you sounds very inviting (and is totally innocent)!
Sunbathing and surfing
Did you know that surfing is considered as one of the national sports in Australia? Well now you do, and since you’re there, why not try it? You can head to Bondi beach and look for a surfing lesson that takes only 2 hours. However, even if you’re not a surfing kind of guy, you should still have Bondi Beach as the next destination on your list – you can have a cocktail and sunbathe on one of the most popular beaches of Sydney. You will definitely be seeing a lot of hot girls around you, maybe flirt a bit, and who knows what could happen? It’s Australia, and you should definitely expect the unexpected!
Seeing koalas and kangaroos
If you have some extra time to spend in Sydney, definitely make this your priority. Maybe you won’t have another chance to see koalas and kangaroos live, so why would you sit out on this amazing experience? Make sure to find Taronga Zoo, one of the most popular zoos in Australia that’s located right next to Sydney Harbour. This zoo is home to many indigenous species, and it also offers safari style nights, so if you’re up for an adventure, go and spend the night there. Maybe you’ll be the writers for “The Hangover 4”!
What’s important is that you will never have to contemplate about what you’re going to do in Sydney. It really is an amazing city, so going there with your male friends for a holiday or a stag party should be non-negotiable.
