Australia Day 4 - Sydney (19 October 2015, Monday)

This was the day we woke up the earliest and by early I mean like 8am. We took a 3 hour train ride all the way to Blue Mountains just to see the magnificent Three Sisters and Leura Cascades. I was kinda disappointed that we didn't have enough time to visit the Jenolan Caves. Mental note to myself that the next time I visit Blue Mountains, I have to be even earlier or just spend a night there. Anyway, at some point it started drizzling so we had to hike in the rain. Doesn't help that my 2 friends have ultra long legs and they walk a lot faster than I do.

The hike was worth it though! The view was amazing. I am not one with nature but woah I wouldn't mind hiking to see it again. We also bought a Scenic World package which entitles us to a few rides. My favourite was the Scenic Railway - the steepest passenger railway in the world. Kinda like a mini roller coaster!! Spent almost the entire day there before heading back to the city for dinner.

We visited the Night Noodle Market and I strongly advise you not to go there. Being Asians, the Asian food they served were simply replicas of the real deal and we could instantly tell the difference. Hahaha. We only went there because we were curious if they would taste the same (what were we thinking?) and that we missed Asian cuisine. There was one night in Melbourne, we missed chinese food so much that we went to a chinese restaurant and paid AUD 14 for a plate of wanton noodles.

This daredevil actually climbed up there. It's more dangerous than it looks.
