A Round the World Itinerary

17 April 2013

For variety and contrast, a round the world flight pass gives you the opportunity of exploring an incredible array of cultures on one fantastic holiday. Major international airlines are now aligned in three groups, which makes circling the globe seamless - you can fly from airport hub to airport hub on different carriers that are united. Here at Flight Centre, we understand that multi-sector itineraries can be challenging to arrange so we have a team of round the world experts who are happy to organise your next international adventure.

Here is one example of a round the world holiday itinerary.

First Stop Los Angeles First Stop Los Angeles

LAX Los Angeles
Begin your adventure by boarding a plane at Sydney's Mascot airport and flying across the Pacific to the Los Angeles International Airport, more commonly known as LAX. This major American hub gives you the opportunity of experiencing movie magic at Universal Studios, finding your favourite actor on Hollywood's Walk of Fame and chilling on the glorious beaches of southern California. Before embarking on your next flight, you could also check out the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Getty Center and take a drive up the famous Mulholland Drive.

JFK New York
Departing LAX, fly from the American west coast to the east coast and touch down at the famed JFK International Airport. Serving more than 47 million passengers a year, New York's principle airport was renamed one month after the former President's assassination. Once in the heart of Manhattan, be sure to check out Times Square, Wall Street and 5th Avenue. It's also worth taking the Staten Island ferry to admire the Statue of Liberty, strolling through Central Park and appreciating the works in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

LHR London
From North America, travel across the Atlantic Ocean to one of the world's great cities - London. The city's principle airport, Heathrow, is located around 22 km from the heart of the English capital and serves around 66 million passengers annually  There are many great attractions to admire including the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square. Also add to the list St Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London. London boasts a fantastic nightlife too - catch a theatre show in the West End before checking out the bars and clubs.

CDG Paris
Next stop on your round the world adventure is Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport. Arriving at the second busiest airport on the continent, the French capital provides the perfect introduction to European sophistication. On the itinerary should be the iconic Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre. Also, be sure to wander along the banks of the Seine, stroll through the Jardin du Luxembourg and, if you're in the mood, waltz down the Champs-Elysees. Rather than just staying in Paris, consider travelling by train to other fantastic destinations nearby - you can potentially fly out of another European city and onto Asia.

SIN Singapore
Singapore's Changi Airport is a major Asian hub for flights from Europe heading onto Australia and visa versa. While in town it's worth visiting the Singapore Zoo, home to more than 2,800 animals, shopping on Orchard Road and enjoying a Singapore Sling at Raffles Hotel. For relaxation, head over to Sentosa Island and chill on the beach or experience the excitement at Resorts World Sentosa. After so many terrific adventures, it's time to board the plane back to reality with a direct flight from Changi Airport to Sydney.
