Meet your multi-stop: Sunny Days & Hipster Ways

Here at STA Travel we do multi-stop flights better than anyone else with exclusive flexible tickets, innovative routes, the freedom to travel overland and prices you can’t find anywhere else (hence the “exclusive” part).

As part of our series on incredible multi-stops we’re exploring a brilliant route from our mates at Qantas which packs in 5 continents (sorry Africa – next one’s all yours!) and a whole host of over-landing opportunities: it’s time to meet your multi-stop.

Meet your multi-stop: Sunny Days & Hipster Ways

Miami

Why stop?
Miami is loud, proud and full of (carb-free) beans. The beaches are renowned for their party vibe with long boardwalks and path ways perfect for roller-skating down, green smoothie in hand.

What to eat?
Little Havana is a great spot to experience Cuban culture and, most importantly, food! Codfish croquetas, and beef empanadas are a must and you can find a mean paella here too.

If I see one thing?
The single best thing to do in Miami is people watching. Grab a cold drink, sit back and watch the whole world pass you by in a few short minutes.

Lima overland to Santiago

Why stop?
A fantastic overland route, travelling from Peru’s capital down to Chile will take you through some of the most beautiful sights in South America. Stop off at Cuzco and hike the Inca Trail, sail to the grass islands on Lake Titicaca, explore the world’s highest capital city La Paz and head on down to the stunning Uyuni salt flats (see, we said loads).

What to eat?
We’ve been open about our love of pisco sours before – and we stand by it.

If I see one thing?
Nothing really beats Machu Picchu but if you’re taking that as a given then the salt flats  come a close second on the list of “oh my god how does this even exist this is amazing where’s my camera”* things to see.

Auckland

Why stop?
The City of Sails is home to over a third of New Zealand’s population, but given that’s only around 1.5 million people it doesn’t feel too crowded (Greater London has over 8 million). Whether you’re chowing down in the top notch eateries, heading over to Mission Bay to catch some sun or using it as a jump off for an even bigger NZ adventure, you’ll not be stuck for things to do.

What to eat?
People from many different cultures call Auckland home and as such its Asian food is fantastic. Sometimes the amazing Vietnamese cafe that will change your life doesn’t look all that from the outside, so be sure to ask a local for their recommendation.

If I see one thing?
Get the boat across to Davenport and climb mount Victoria for lovely views of the city.

Melbourne overland to Sydney

Why stop?
Stopping in Melbourne is a great opportunity to discover another classic overland route – the Great Ocean Road. Spend time exploring the south of Oz (and beyond) with cheap internal flights with Qantas before making your way to the big daddy of Australian cities – Sydney.

What to eat?
Fish fish fish fish

If I see one thing?
The 12 Apostles: we’ll let them do the talking.

12 Apostles

Yeah they speak pretty loud

Jakarta overland to Phuket

Why stop?
Many South East Asian overland routes have become backpacker right of passages, including the loop from Bangkok through Vietnam and Cambodia as well as the beautiful trek from Bangkok to Singapore. This slightly different approach lets you skip some of the crowds and explore the Indonesian peninsula as well as Singapore and Malaysia before finishing on an Island paradise (in)famous for the full moon party. Where do we sign?

What to eat?
Nasi goreng is an Indonisian and Malasian staple (because it’s amazing) but if you’d like something a little more adventurous the many food markets are a great way to expand your food horizons.

If I see one thing?
We’ve fallen in love with Borobudur, and it’s not hard to see why.

DUBAI

Why stop?
So much more than just a transit hub, Dubai is a glittering jewel of the UAE with the tallest building in the world, amazing shopping opportunities, white sand and celebrity strewn beaches.

What to eat?
Honestly? Anything you like! Dubai is truly a worldwide hub and whether you fancy sushi or shawarma they’ll be something to tickle your taste buds.

If I see one thing?
Head out of the city for a night with a local Bedouin tribe under the desert stars.

You can check out the Sunny Days & Hipster Ways – as well as our other top routes with equally amazing names – on our multi-stop pages here.

  1. I do consider all of the ideas you’ve introduced to your
    post. They are very convincing and can certainly work.
    Still, the posts are very brief for starters. Could you please
    lengthen them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
