Flights to the Far East have long been on the gap year route, for a variety of reasons. Top of the list is the fact that it’s so incredibly different that you really have to go there to experience it for yourself. Second and probably only be a little bit, is the amazing food. Whether it’s the authentic food you’ll taste in the back streets of China, the Michelin starred food of Hong Kong or the freshest Japanese sushi, it’s all new and nothing like anything you will have tasted elsewhere.
Flying via the Far East is a brilliant way to connect to other more distant parts of the world and break up the trip. Stopovers in Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok or even Beijing and Shanghai are ideal destinations to make a trip to Australia much more manageable. Whatever route you’re planning to take on your gap year, we’re pretty sure there’ll be somewhere in the Far East you’ll want to see!
