Looks like “The Big Trip” in April will now include Australia and possibly a few other countries. Cathay Pacific has a “All Asia Pass” which can include a variety of cities and for extra $$$, can include Australia for a modest cost.
So, I’m starting to piece together “what we’re going to do” when in Southeast Asia. It looks like Hong Kong (required) and Sydney, but I’m also looking at Taipei, Tokyo, and possibly Bali. Here’s the list of cities….

Please feel free to comment if you have been to any of these cities and what is worth seeing/avoiding.
