Australia is far from any other continent, and here it may be a bit like running a marathon. It is a good opportunity to destroy the flight and stop on a trip to Australia or from there. Another good idea is to stay a little longer and visit another country in the southern hemisphere while you are here.
This solution is not for everyone. It takes at least 3 weeks to visit Australia, so a couple of stops of 3 nights will unfortunately take too much time. You can stop a stop for a few days.
Many travelers decide to stay on the road for a few days or back from Australia. This has the additional advantage of eliminating long flight and jet. Asia is usually a classic choice for this, and below you will find more recommendations for stops:
Bangkok and Thailand. competitive flights and still reasonably cheap when you get there.
Here are some suggestions on what to do in Bangkok:
1) You have to visit the Grand Palace. Although you can't actually get into the palace, the buildings are beautiful and can be adapted from the outside. This is the king's official residence, but now it is used only for special occasions.
2) The Wat Sai Floating Market is a good visit and you can get a barge outside the big palace. It is also good to combine a visit to the Royal Barges Museum. There are some fabulous ships that the king uses.
3) For the best shopping visit the Chatuchak Weekend Market Very big to get lost easily. You could think of everything here and this is a good place to have many restaurants. I advise you to come there when the heat and crowd get worse as the sun goes down. It's open.
4) If you want to see more from Bangkok, take a Segway tour. This is a tour, the difference of which will be on the 2 wheel electronic device. They are easy to handle and give you a real sense of freedom when you travel to Bangkok's streets.
5) There is no way in Thailand without the experience of Bangkok's nightlife. Go to town and buy a lady show or just enjoy some drinks and see the world.
If you are heading towards Thai beaches, consider the area around Phuket. Jet Star departs directly from Sydney and Phuket and has special discounted rates for certain periods of the year.
I recommend Phuket only if you are a half animal. It's a bit like an Ibiza Asian counterpart. Very large resort with hundreds of clubs and bars and restaurants. If you go after a quieter holiday, I'll go to Phi Phi Island. It's a popular day trip from Phuket, but it's a great alternative if you need a quiet time. It's close to where the "The Beach" was filmed.
There is no room in this article to explore all of the shutdown alternatives. Other stops include Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and Singapore. When you travel from the United States, Fiji is a good stop to break down the flight and see another beautiful island.
If you travel to Australia for more than 3 weeks, I will seriously consider a New Zealand trip or even a Bali tropical island. Flight times from Australia are reasonable.
