Hi

Trip - HK -Bali-Cairns-Sydney-Hawaii-S francisco-L Vegas- NY

I was wondering if any one has any useful tips, and where do i look for long term accomodation in sydney, we would like to rent somewhere!!(4 months)

Any ideas would be great!

Cheers

Bring plenty of money....Vegas and NY aren't towns i'd like to be broke (for different reasons) in!

I think TNT magazine are online, you may be able to find a place in Sydney through them, or just try through search engines.

Loved HK but wasn't prepared for the stupid prices - lucky enough to have stayed in the Kowloon Hotel so not sure about budget accomodation. Drinks were really pricey, even in happy hour.

Reccomendations I would give -

(1) Visit Cheung Chau (probably incorrectly spelt!). Cool little fishing village with an assortment of pavement cafes - the seafood we had was fantastic and relatively inexpensive.

(2) Take time to visit the Po Lin monastary (On Lamma Island, I think).Very peaceful place and the huge bronze Buddah was pretty impressive. The scary bus journey to the monastary remains one of my most enduring memories!

(3) Don't take the hydrofoil to Maccau if you are severely hungover..!

Enjoy!!!
