My idea of a 30 day round the world trip

Just an interesting idea..but for that, I'll definitely need a travelling companion.

Round the world tickets will be used- for 26000 miles and under, the estimated cost is S$4890.

Part 1- Singapore to Dubai (7hr30 min) Explore the flashy city of gold bazaars and shopping malls, and the Burj hotel (4 days).

Part 2- Dubai to Istanbul ( 4hr 15 min)
─░stanbul is one of the truly great romantic cities. Its history tracks back from Byzantium to Constantinople to its place at the head of the Ottoman Empire. Today it hums as Turkey's cultural heart and good-time capital. Visit the Hagia Sofia and the local scene. ( 3 days)

Part 3- Istanbul to Paris ( 3hr 45 min) Explore the numerous museums, Eiffel tower, and check out the fantastic French cuisine. ( 5 days)

Part 4- Paris to Rio De Janerio ( 11hr) Relax in the latin american culture of music and partying.

(6 days)

Part 5- Rio De Janerio to New York (11 hr) Explore the Big Apple and the Empire state building. Maybe visit the scrabble club there. (5 days)

Part 6 - New York to Tokyo ( 14 hr) Explore Tokyo and the interesting Japanese food. ( 5 days)

Part 7- Tokyo to Singapore ( 7 hr ) Back..
