The Land of Oz is one of the most desirable holiday destinations in the world. Year after year, people from all over the world book airline tickets to pay homage to this wonderful land. The sheer distance of Australia from the UK makes it one of the most wanted long haul holiday destination for Britons. There are no direct flights from UK serving Australia and this makes for a wonderful opportunity for an exciting two centre holiday. One gets the chance to stopover in some of the most exotic places to visit on the planet. Many of these destinations also make for excellent cheap holidays. Here are a few of these popular stopovers on one’s sojourn to Australia.


With its legendary sun, sand, and surf experience, Bali is a hit with Britons and most people grab the chance of a stopover in Bali when they book their flights to Australia. The best time to visit Bali is during one of the Hindu festivals. People looking for a pulsating nightlife experience during a stopover in Bali, should check out the Kuta and Legian – two of the hottest night action precincts. It goes without saying that after a short Bali stopover, many people start saving up for cheap flights to Bali for their next overseas trip.


Travellers booking their Australia flights with Emirates can have a stopover in Dubai. The chance to stay in the most lavish hotels in the world, going out on camel safaris, indulging in heart thudding dune and wadi bashing driving action, shopping to the limit of one’s wallet – reasons are endless for choosing Dubai as a stop over. Many airlines offer economy as well as business class flights to Dubai.


Britons make a sizeable majority of travellers who always seem to be hunting for cheap airfares to Bangkok. Quite unsurprisingly, given a chance, nobody wants to miss the opportunity of a stopover in Bangkok. Bangkok is an electrifying city with stunning contradictions. Glitzy nightclubs, a tremendous array of culinary delights, endless spots for sightseeing, as well as massive heady doses of religion especially by way of Buddhist temples and memorabilia all exist in perfect harmony.


Singapore, like other Southeast Asian countries has fascinated immigrants who book cheap flights to Australia to take a stopover at this beautiful Lion city. While those with intent of a two centre holiday can explore myriad of city attractions including the most iconic Merlion, the giant Singapore Flyer, Universal Studios and many more, those with a few hours stopover at the awarded Changi airport can revel in the airport centric attractions that are specially made to amuse the stopover tourists. These include gardens like butterfly garden that has a waterfall and a huge variety of carnivorous plants. 24 hours free movie theatres in terminal 2 & 3, free Internet access and games like Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and not to forget an impressive duty free shopping experience engage on and all.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong has been popular as the heart of Asia. The city is chosen as a stopover by many travellers who book cheap flights to Australia.  The city is a blend of eastern and western cultures. The roadside markets, exotic hotels, Chinese temples, Ladies Market, rich colonial and Chinese heritage and superb food make Hong Kong an ideal place to loosen up.

Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is a very popular stopover destination as more than 40 international flights fly into the city every day. The city has a lot to proffer the stopover travellers in terms of sightseeing and shopping. The most prominent are the Petronas Twin Towers. Kuala Lumpur’s cluttered lanes with a Chinese ambiance and vibrant Indian stalls are worth seeing.
