Hotels In Sydney

By: E Cho

A holiday in Sydney is a good alternative to spending Christmas, New Year's, and Chinese New Year's in the freezing cold of the northern hemisphere. White sandy beaches are located only minutes away from hotels. From luxury hotels such as the Meriton World Tower , Meriton Pitt Street , and the Meriton Bondi Junction, to budget accommodation for backpackers, like the Ibis Hotel Darling Harbour , the Capitol Square Hotel, the Barclay Hotel, or the Best Western Hotel, you will find the perfect place to stay.

People trying to escape harsh bitter cold winter days will find beach barbecues, surfing, and scuba diving very enjoyable. There are also public street festivals such as Chinese New Year between January and February, while showboat expos during Christmas and New Year's Eve Celebration are the norm. Hotels in Sydney require reservations in advance because they are often filled fast.

All hotels in Sydney are also equipped for business activities, but during the holiday season, leisure prevails. The Christmas spirit is more noticeable when evening falls. Nightlife in Sydney is vibrant, but during holidays it possesses a special charm that will leave tourists spellbound.

Running from Christmas to the New Year, numerous musical events are held in different locations, from hotel restaurants to the Royal Botanical Gardens. Christmas carol performances are free for visitors to enjoy when the Sydney Youth Orchestra plays at the Royal Botanical Gardens. 'Carols on the Bay' plays until New Year's Day at the Darling Harbor 's Aquashell. 'Carols in the Domain' is another main event in Sydney where some Australian celebrities get together singing Christmas carols. Chinese New Year is one of Sydney 's annual attractions. 500,000 people congregated in the city during 2006, so if you are traveling to Sydney , this is a reason to extend your vacations.

Hotels near Belmore Park offer food events during Chinese New Year, and Darling Harbor runs traditional Dragon Boat Races. Others offer tours to the Sze Yup Temple , a Taoist Church located in Evergreen. Hotels in Sydney are getting ready to celebrate the arrival of the Year of the Pig next February 18, 2007 and it is recommended that you book your rooms today, if you do not want to miss this event.

Most lodging facilities also offer seasonal food at their restaurants, cafes, and room service, including special Christmas dinners to round the seasonal spirit. In addition, New Years' brings the opportunity to celebrate dining with other guests at your hotel, or to just simply enjoy the magnificent view that Sydney Harbour provides.
