In theory, you can drive from Sydney to Uluru in about 30 hours but a lot depends on weather conditions. That's the most direct way, through Coober Pedy (South Australia). Take the route north from Sydney to visit Gold Coast/Brisbane and then going i... See More
The train doesn't run all night but the SMRT system is awesome. Singapore is one of the safest places in the world, especially for a solo female traveller. The main areas are extremely vibrant so it would be a shame for you to miss out on them if you... See More
M&M's World is right at Times Square if you want to give them a chocolate treat. If you don't want to queue up for any of the water tours, the Staten Island Ferry is free and gives a great view of the city and the Statue of Liberty. You might not fin... See More

I had a decent lunch at La Maison Rose, which is on a corner, near the Montmartre vineyard. It's not outrageously good but perfectly acceptable. The staff when I was there spoke excellent English and, if you're there when the weather is decent, it's ... See More
It's hard to make recommendations when I don't know what you're into, but there are some spectacular places to eat, drink and soak up the Singapore skyline. I'd recommend you visit Gardens by the Bay, particularly at night. The lights are spectacular... See More
The coast road is much more scenic than the Hume Highway (the most direct driving route from Sydney to Melbourne, taking around 10 hours "door to door") but it's a much longer drive. The Royal National Park is probably less than an hour south of Sydn... See More
