So now we have a group of cities/excursions/destinations as diverse as your interests. Try to then list them in order of excitement/interest. For example, your list might look something like:
- Angkor Wat
- Machu Picchu
- New Delhi
But, let’s say you’ve always wanted to visit Angkor Wat in Cambodia. So, if that’s at the top of your list, we can plan around that destination and fill in other blanks. Now getting to Siem Reap, where Angkor Wat is located, is a bit tricky and finding a direct flight is probably not possible (depending on where you are). But that’s actually a good thing.
Seeing that Tokyo and Singapore are also on the list and major cities to fly in and out of, we could easily think about an itinerary using either city as launching and returning points. Just remember that the main goal is Angkor Wat since that’s our #1 destination. Getting there is the objective and how we get there allows us to knock some other destinations off our list. So, depending on the flights available to you, a reasonable plan might be to visit Singapore, Siem Reap, Bangkok, and Tokyo.
This gives us pretty easy access as well as options for Siem Reap. Flying in and out of major cities gives you more options with different carriers and times. And, even though Bangkok wasn’t on our list originally, we might as well explore the city if we’re there.
Well this is just a basic example but you get the idea. This is pretty much how all my trips start.
