This "capital of the Pacific rim" offers a myriad of sights, such as the world-famous Opera House, incredible Sydney Harbour, and the golden sands of Bondi Beach to name just a few.

And if you really want to experience the land Down Under, duck into a local pub for some meat pies, Australia beer and good conversation with the friendly locals.

  12:00am Yangon, Mayanmar
This low-rise down-town consists of leafy avenues and quite a lot of colonial architecture, for a small town feel despite a population of about 6 million. From almost anywhere you are in Yangon, you will see the great gilded dome of the Shwedagon Pagoda hovering over you protectively, and a visit will introduce you not only to one of the Asia's great religious sites, but to the daily life of the Burmese people, who come often to make their devotions, but also to spend time with friends, or sit in quiet contemplation. Kipling called it a "golden mystery", and it is indeed capable of casting a spell on all who visit. Yangon also known as Rangoon

  12:00am Mumbai, India
India's premier metropolis is a city of stark contrasts, modern towers of steel and glass stand next to stately stone edifices from the days of the Raj. Automobiles race down the crowded streets and everywhere one confronts the paradox of India. The commercial capital of the subcontinent, a large percentage of Mumbai's population lives in hutments without running water or electricity. Yet the fabled "Gateway of India" is a place of haunting beauty, from the marble serenity of the Jain Palace to the Elephanta Caves, where sculptures of Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu were carved out of solid rock over a millennia ago.
