HolidayIQ reviewer Rohit Mandhotra says, “Prague is a jewel in the East European corridor, well connected from all major European cities. I chose to stay next to the iconic Charles Bridge. All the major sights i.e Prague Castle, Wenceslas Square, Astronomical clock, the Jewish Town are walking distance from the hotel. The weather in June was perfect and the days were long and pleasant. I walked the city early in the morning and again in the evenings when the musicians, street artists were performing in all their glory. The food is palatable and the Czech beer is a must have.

From taking a walk on the Harbour bridge to attending a mesmerising concert at Opera House - Sydney will enthral you. Also, don't forget to visit beautiful museums around Town Hall. For shopping, Paddys market is fun to be in. The airport is very well connected the city centre by Metro (takes around 15-20 minutes). If you are visiting Sydney, I would strongly recommend buying a MyMulti all day pass ticket. And you can have unlimited travel on the city buses, train, and ferries.”
