My favorite part about living in a big city like Sydney is seeing the city lights at night. For me, nothing compares to a late night uber ride through dark streets that are lit up by the surrounding buildings. When I arrived in Sydney I failed to realize that the light festival taking place over the course of the next few weeks, known as VIVID Sydney, was so popular. Not only did almost every restaurant and hotel have signs for VIVID in their windows, but I also found that people traveled from all over Austrailia to experience the light festival and its unique beauty. 
Aside from lighting up the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House, VIVID also hosted different interactive light shows throughout the harbor area. This included a sky of lit up origamis that changed colors as well as lights that changed with the sound of a clap or physical movement. Also, these buildings were on a street above the main harbor stretch that was closed after sunset and reminded me of Main St. in Disneyland. The colorful lights prove just how inviting and cheerful this event was. 
Of course, the night would not be complete without a drink, especially when adjusting to working a full-time internship (okay, maybe I had two)! A friend of mine recommended this rooftop bar which is located on top of The Glenmore Hotel. I found this bar to be my favorite place to see a great view of the VIVID lights while hanging out with friends. Once I began chatting with different people at the bar I realized that it was a place with the perfect local-to-tourist ratio, (which is my favorite kind of place.) So, if you are ever looking for a great drink with good company and an even better city view now you know where to find it!
