Well, a Round the World trip for 4 months you cant expect to see "much".

I would recommend to concentrate your energy on one area. You could do a "South American" tour, visit Argentina, Peru, Brazil. That could be nice and suitable.

Or a Oceania Tour only including Australia and New Zealand. Cold work ?

All United States Tour? New York, San Fransisco, Las Angeles, Miami and so forth? Eh?

European Train Tour? They have some good offers. See all of Europe there is to see... or, alteast some of it :P

it depends on what part of the world you want to see....basically you have 2 months which you could more or less go anywhere u wanted to but you just need to figure out exactly where so you can focus in on making the most of somewhere......my ideas.....
you could focus on say South East Asia in which case and you could map out to see a lot of countires but just be cautious of how much time you spend in each one, you could do Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam or go the opposite direction and see Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia?????
or you could give your self say 8 weeks and choose say 6 stop offs on your rtw ticket.....agreee to spend a week in more or less each place and then the 2 places you are more interetsed in seeing give yourself 2 weeks and that gives you more opportunity to explore than a bit more!!!
so id say go all out see the world in brief stops or focis in on one place and see it all!!!!let me know what you decided on im interested in hearing all about it!!!!

It really depends, i did india, singapore, thailand, vietnam and then stopped in australia, we did this in 2months, we saw heaps. As long as you can barter in the asian countrys you can make your money strech, we only speant 1200 pound on rwt and about 200 pound in india we went from dehli to jaipur to agra to the ghanges and back to dehli in 9 days we saw heaps.
It was about the same in thailand, its really cheap once you get there and they have a lot of tourists shops competeing for your business, so you can ask them to do a better price.
have fun
