Flight route

This round-the-world itinerary is only a route proposal for your big trip. If you would like to visit destinations other than those suggested or depart from another city in the UK, reach out to our team of travel experts who can help you put together your dream adventure.

Destination #1 Bangkok, Thailand

Thailand, and Bangkok in particular, has always been popular with backpackers. It's relatively inexpensive, easy to navigate, and buzzing with activity. You can enjoy the city's local food and culture, and visit the gleaming temples and palaces.

Once you're in Bangkok, you can choose to head north to the jungles and hill tribe villages around Chiang Mai. Or head south to the idyllic beaches and tropical islands of Koh Samui and Phuket.

Destination #2 Hong Kong

Onto your next stop. And with your flight from Thailand to Australia, you can choose to stopover in Hong Kong. This vibrant and bustling city is home to delicious dim sum, excellent shopping and a breathtaking skyline.

You can explore Hong Kong's rich history and culture by visiting attractions such as the Man Mo Temple and the Hong Kong Museum of History. And while you're here, you can't miss out on taking a stroll along the iconic Victoria Harbour, or take a tram ride up to Victoria Peak for stunning views of the city.

Destination #3 Sydney, Australia

Sydney is a fantastic stop for those wanting to immerse themselves in Aussie culture! Not only does the city itself have a lot to offer by way of food, beaches, and activities, you can explore the surrounding areas of the Blue Mountains and the southeast areas of Australia.

Destination #4 Los Angeles, USA

Last stop is Los Angeles, the city that epitomises the southern California lifestyle. Get a set of wheels (a car or a campervan) and explore the west coast including the Grand Canyon, San Diego, San Francisco, Portland, Las Vegas, and Yosemite National Park.
