When I saw a Groupon deal for the Vivid Sydney cruise, I didn’t think twice. It was ON!
I booked the ticket to Sydney and flew over the long weekend. This time, I didn’t stay in my friend’s Sydney apartment. Instead, Fafa and I Airbnb-ed a surfer’s den at Bondi Beach.
In my mind, Vivid Sydney cruise would be similar to the Dubai Dhow Cruise I took Amma on some years ago.
Romantic lighting, dining tables, glass, windows, and waiters waiting on us.
In reality, our Vivid Sydney cruise boat was much smaller, it has open-air seating areas, filled with inconsiderate tourists who yelled and threw half drank beer cans on the floor. Also, it was damn cold!!
But we were already there, and despite the cold combined with random yelling, it was a beautiful night. I chose to enjoy the colourful Sydney, after all, I considered myself so lucky to get to experience it?
All in all, Vivid Sydney had been an amazing experience! It comes as the second-best festival in Lunar New Year.
Sydney Opera House is my most favorite landmark in the world, more than the Eiffel Tower.
Be sure to check it out next time you come to Sydney, this is definitely one of Australia’s cultural travel experiences you should not miss.
