« Shopping Adventure in Sydney

The Rocks Market Sydney

Who says that shopping is not an adventure? Searching for specific items is like hunting for gold. Getting stuck in a crowded market is like being trapped in a labyrinth. Asking for a discount from the seller is like pleading your case in court. A whole day of shopping can wear anyone out even if you are as fit as snowboarder champ Torah Bright and tennis superstar Jelena Dokic.

When it comes to shopping, Sydney is the place to be because of its numerous markets. Even Europeans travel across the globe just to get the best shopping experience in this city. People from the UK can find convenience in DialAFlight's direct flights from London or Manchester to Sydney. The flight duration time between two cities is approximately 22 hours. Those who aren't in a hurry can have a stopover in Bangkok, Hong Kong, Beijing, and Singapore - cities that are also known for their cheap shopping.

Instead of going to Sydney's high-end retail stores, visit its outdoor markets where you can find almost everything - from second-hand clothes and jewellery to local produce and antiques. This will be a fun girl's day out for you and your BFFs. Here are some of the most popular markets in Sydney:

 

Paddy's Market

This is the largest market in Sydney and more mainstream than the other markets because the items sold here are brand new, but are sold at a cheaper price. Paddy's Market has two locations - one in Sydney Markets 2129 and the other in Haymarket. Don't be surprised if you find popular retailers in this market that sell their overstocked items. You can also find plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits sold here at very low prices.

Bondi Beach Markets

Have you ever shopped beside the beach? Head down to the Bondi Beach Markets where you can find stalls that sell second-hand clothing and other items - from hardware to handicrafts. The markets can be found on the grounds of the Bondi Beach Public School on Campbell Parade. After shopping, you and the girls can hit the beach or dine in any of Bondi's eateries.

The Rocks Market

Situated within the central business district and overlooking the Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Rocks Market is one of the most crowded markets in the city. Despite of its busy location, people that go here take their time to shop for locally designed clothes, bags, and accessories. You can also find original artworks and handicrafts here. Hungry? Then you can indulge in freshly cooked food offered in various stalls. For entertainment, have fun watching the local street performers at The Rocks.
