I'm a 21 y/o female from the UK and I'm planning on going travelling October/November this year alone. I've been doing some research into RTW tickets and I feel as though I'm just getting more confused and frustrated the more research I do! I'd like to go to Hong Kong, Thailand, Kuala Lumpur, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Philippines, Laos, Singapore, Bali, Sri Lanka and New Zealand (in no particular order). I really don't know the best way to go about doing this.. I tried several of the most popular sites for RTW tickets and just found after 7/8 destinations I'd maxed out the 16 segments, which is something I still can't seem to get to grips with! My end goal is to actually end up in Australia where I'd like to get a WH visa and live and work there for a year, but I know with a RTW ticket it can't be one way, so I'd have to come home for a couple of weeks where I could spend some time at home with family & friends and go out to Aus separately.
Is it best to book flights as I go in this case or is there some way I can get a RTW tickets with all the countries?
Any help/advice will be much appreciated!
