Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Flight stop overs!!

Just wondering if anyone can recommend some good stop overs on the way to Australia in June.

We can stop in Hong Kong, Singapore or Thailand. Is it worthwhile stopping for just a day or so?

It sure is!
I would go for Hongkong, close second is Bangkok.

If you go to singoporre i think you will like it also try to go on singapore airlines from the uk because they have a great service so i am told

Oh l can recommend Singapore - about 4 days or so would be enough (& Singapore Airlines are great), Bangkok another great city to spend a few days in, Bali - great beautiful island for relaxing and sight seeing.

There's also Dubai which l have never been too but great for shopping apparently.

Definitely worthwhile Bobby, even if it's only for a day.
If you chose to do the stopover I would recommend doing it on the way home so you can stock up on the shopping and not have to lug it around Aus.

wassup all.

if you coming from far far away, i would say stop in bangkok for a few days, but spend lesser days in singapore as compared to bangkok! singapore's more a shopper's paradise, and i say its nothing like bangkok.
