Although it is not the capital, sydney is the largest city in australia; it is also the most popular tourist city in australia with great restaurants, the opera house, the sydney harbour bridge and much more. In the southern hemisphere the seasons are reversed. Winter lasts from may to august – this is the coolest time of the year, but room rates are dropping. Sydney's peak season is between december and february, and if you live in a cold climate, this is the best time to visit sydney. New year's eve fireworks over the harbor are breathtaking. September to november and march to may are also nice times to visit with beautiful weather and fewer crowds. Photo: chee-onn leong / fotolia

Traveling alone is becoming more and more popular worldwide. There are many reasons to travel alone – you can focus more on the destination, you can travel at your own pace without considering the preferences of your travel companion, and you can do anything you want all the time. You have the freedom to change plans and find your own rhythm. When you travel alone, you'll meet more locals and make new friends around the world.

Many travelers say that their first solo trip was a life-changing experience; all agree that it is more than just a trip, it is a path of self-discovery. You have time and space to think at your leisure. Since there is no person next to you, you will also become more determined and confident.
