International Travel


Listed below are some of the major hubs into Australia. 
Take advantage of this break in your journey to experience their culture and attractions.

 

SINGAPORE
Singapore consists of one main island and 58 smaller ones.  Singapore’s climate is usually hot and sultry and the rainy season is from November to January.  With Singapore’s lack of natural flora and fauna it has built its own gardens and zoos, waterfalls and underwater parks. It is home to one of the best zoos in the world.  Jurong Park has the world’s highest man made waterfall and the Bird Sanctuary even has simulated tropical thunderstorms!

Orchard Road is the most popular shopping area in Singapore.  It is the central hub of what is also known as the ‘city’ of Singapore.  Orchard Road is home to a myriad of department stores, restaurants, movie theatres and other entertainment outlets.

HAWAII
The island group of Hawaii is comprised of 132 islands and atolls.  Hawaii consists of eight islands - Big Island (also named Hawaii), Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Kauai, Kahoolawe and Niihau.

Whether you’re looking to relax, or travel and explore, Hawaii has a lot to offer. On these wonderful islands there is something for everyone: the beauty of the tropics for nature lovers, the fascinating volcanic activity and the beautiful white sandy beaches that Hawaii is so famous for.

HONG KONG
Situated at the south-eastern tip of China, Hong Kong is ideally positioned at the centre of rapidly developing East Asia.  Hong Kong has become a world-class financial, trading and business centre.  Hong Kong has no natural resources, except one of the finest deep-water ports in the world.  Victoria Peak is Hong Kong’s premier visitor attraction.  High above Hong Kong Island it provides magnificent harbour and city views. The city also offers a multitude of fantastic entertainment, dining and shopping options.

BANGKOK
Bangkok, or as it is known in Thai as “Krung Thep”, is the capital city of Thailand.  Bangkok is considered to be the world’s top tourist hotspot and is reportedly one of the most hospitable places in the world.  The city combines its hundreds of temples and mosques with the modernity of a dynamic metropolis. 

There are a variety of shopping experiences from street markets to malls.  The Chatuchak weekend market is one of the largest shopping destinations in Bangkok.  Water markets are gradually disappearing but remain strong tourist attractions amid one of the most bustling Asian cities you’ll ever visit.
