You’ll be feeling the Bangkok buzz as soon as those wheels touch the runway. This city is non-stop and chock-a-block full of bustling streets, serene temples, never-ending nightlife and mouth-watering snacks to feast on so go on, get stuck in!
Bangkok is the perfect launch pad for venturing into Thailand’s lush northern hills and elephant-speckled forests, so why don't you leave the city far behind and go get yourself an adventure! Delve into the emerald valleys and get to know Thai life the truest way on the Northern Hilltribes and Villages tour which will see you chilling out in Chang Mai and trekking through the hills to visit hidden local villages. There’s just enough time to sway through the trees on the back of an elephant before it’s back down to Bangkok and onto your next tip top stop!
It’s up to you to wind your way down to Singapore from Bangkok, as you island hop around the southerly Thai beaches and down into the marvellous Malaysian Peninsula. You’ll be padding around Penang, taking tea in the cool Malay highlands and kicking back in sky-scraping Kuala Lumpur before finally sliding into starry Singapore to explore the shiny shops and world-class food.
Sounds right up your street? Then hop on the Roam Bangkok to Singapore tour that takes in all these sights and sees you through to your next stop in two spectacular weeks! There’s simply no better way to go!
It’s goodbye Asia and hello Australia as you arrive in the land down under! Perth is the perfect westerly point to commence your epic Aussie adventure so don that dangly-cork hat and dive head-first into the big red!
There’s the mind-boggling Pinnacles to ponder over, dancing dolphins in Monkey Mia and dozey whale sharks off the Ningaloo Reef to cruise alongside so time is sure to fly as you work your way up to the northerly town of Broome, and through the wilderness of the Kimberley to Darwin. Three weeks on the Perth to Darwin Safari will ensure you don’t miss one teeny tiny moment in this giant westerly land so make like a kangaroo and hop on!
As the capital of the Northern Territory, this modern city is home to some pretty awesome hangouts for you to poke your nose in, especially when a tropical storm descends!
While you're here, make sure you do our Litchfield National Park day trip - you'll experience giant termite mounds, rock pools, and Tolmer Falls and Wangi Falls, where you can take a refreshing dip to cool off. These crystal clear waters are an incredible sight and the view from the top of the falls is something to savour.
Cairns' popularity among travellers is well-known, and for good reason. With its tropical location and vibrant energy, there's something for all tastes in this sunny city.
But the main reason to visit is of course to see the world-famous Great Barrier Reed. There's arguably no better place in the world to learn to dive than among the incredible sea life and coral that's rife in this region. Think about joining a tour such as the 5-day PADI Learn to Dive course to make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Shooting across the great Aussie outback, next up it’s east-coast steamer, Cairns! This is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef so grab your snorkel and jump right in!
Once you’ve dragged yourself from the shimmering reefs there’s only one way to go – south, to the superstar that is Sydney! From sailing the Whitsundays and sand-blasting along Fraser Island’s 75-mile beach, to catching some rays in Byron Bay and trying your hand at surfing, Australia’s East Coast knows how to impress!
For all this and much, much more, grab yourself an Oz Experience pass that will scoot you down the coast with ease, dishing out unique experience after experience and non-stop fun every step of the way! Good on ya mate!
Oh how time flies! It may be the final stop on your epic adventure but get ready to have your socks well and truly knocked off – it’ the U.S.of.A people!
Touch down in glittering L.A, the city of angels and perfect starting point to explore all that the sun-drenched West Coast has to offer.

Oh yes, the green, green grass of home! You’ll be glad to touch down in good old Blighty after your mammoth trip. Be sure to get those snaps up on Facebook and spread your new worldly wisdom with anyone who will listen. And don’t forget: daily moisturising is the key to holding that tan!
