MT Business Travel: Frequent Flyer - John Drummond's Guide to Sydney


HOW TO GET THERE: I usually fly with Qantas or KLM from London, but it's all much of a muchness. The plane has to stop en route as it's such a long flight, and I like to break the journey in Singapore. If I've got time, I'll spend a couple of days there.

AIRPORT TO TOWN: There are no trains from Sydney airport to the centre of town, so I usually get a cab. It's about Adollars 40 (pounds 16) for a 30 to 45-minute journey. My view is that, having spent about 22 hours flying, you owe it to yourself to take a taxi.

GETTING AROUND: I'm always taken aback by the size of Sydney, but I find it easy to get around. There are plenty of taxis, and there are great hydrofoils and water taxis that run 24 hours a day. A fast monorail runs between the City centre and Darling Harbour.

BEST HOTEL: I stay at the Shangri-La hotel 1 (176 Cumberland Street, 00 61 2 9250 6000, www.shangri-la.com), which is in the Rocks area, right by the harbour. If you want to soak up the views, it's the place to be. The service is fantastic too. After a long trip like that, you need all the help you can get.

BEST ROOM: I usually like to overlook the Opera House, but there are rooms with good views all round, of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, for example, or Darling Harbour.

BEST BUSINESS RESTAURANT: There's a great restaurant inside the Opera House - Guillaume at Bennelong 2 (Opera House, Bennelong Point, 00 61 2 9241 1999), run by chef Guillaume Brahimi. From inside, it has a wonderful view of the Opera House's architecture. The Rockpool 3 is also good (107 George Street, 00 61 2 9252 1888). It was named restaurant of the year for 2004 by the Sydney Morning Herald, and has great seafood. Further afield, Sydney chef Luke Mangan runs Salt Restaurant 4 (229 Darlinghurst Road, Darlinghurst, 00 61 2 9332 2566), which also has a good bar. My favourite is Mezzaluna at Pott's Point 5 (123 Victoria Street, 00 61 2 9357 1988). It's away from the harbour, and has spectacular views of the rest of the city. It's the place to go if you want to reward yourself for a successful trip. …
