Sydney Olympic Park

Sydney Olympic Park

 

 

Sydney Olympic Park is a sprawling sports, cultural and leisure complex in Sydney. It was developed when Sydney hosted the 2000 Olympics. The area is still used to host sports and cultural events. We saw posters in one of the stadiums of upcoming concerts for the year. Honestly, we just drove around and stopped a bit to take pictures. We did not stay very long.

Mandalay Tour

Mandalay Tour

 

My Mandalay tour started pretty late. It was around noon so we did not go to a lot of places. I hired a local taxi driver recommended by my friend. Their taxi are not cars, it’s more like a pick up truck covered at the back. He charged me about 15,000 kyats for the whole day.
