Had planned this trip in a short time, Had received the Chinese visa a week before departure.
As I was travelling light, took a train to Sydney International Airport.
After completing check-in, with time to spare, went to the observation deck. Sydney used to have open observation deck in 2009.

End of trip
Sydney - SYD
Singapore - SIN
Singapore Airlines had always been a pleasure to fly. Always experienced good customer service, cleanliness in cabin, wide choice of entertainment and most important punctuality.
Sydney Airport was not busy in during the non-peak time and was easy to fly out from. Singapore Changi is an excellent airport for transit with wide choice to keep one engaged while waiting to board the next flight.
