38. Caracas

The next destination on the list is the capital of Venezuela, Caracas. This city hosts both samples of the countries culture, as well as samples of some of the natural beauty that is gifted to this part of the globe. With rolling green mountains to the South of the city and golden sand beaches to the North of the city, this city offers it all to the tourists seeking natural beauty! However, this trip would not be complete without trying some of the local pabellón criollo and hallacas. So pack your bags, because we are heading to Venezuela!

This would have been the perfect opportunity for another dope route. Hongkong to Istanbul and from there the very rare TK service to Caracas via Havanna, Cuba! Still a cool route you took!

1 Like

We questioned this route, but we had no idea it was via Havana to be honest, I wish I had known that when deciding the route. The other route we were thinking about was HK to Madrid and then Iberia Madrid to Caracas. But so far in the challenge the randomiser has not given as much love to North and South America as other places so we kinda add some love to North and South America ourselves through the route!

Since Havana has its own route and the route taken is a circular, Istanbul-Havana-Caracas-Istanbul, we will do it when Havana comes up! Thank you for pointing this out to us!

No problem! The flight to Havanna is gorgeous! The Mediterranean Sea, the US, the Caribbean, basically everything you could ask for in a single flight!

39. Tainan City

The next destination on the list is located in the West of Taiwan, Tainan City. This is city is believed to be the oldest city in Taiwan, rightfully giving it the name “The Ancient City of Taiwan”. Stepping foot in the beautiful city will send you back in time with its old architecture, temples and nature. Whether you are there to visit the local cultural sites such as Tainan Confucius Temple, An Ping Tree House or Taijiang National Park, there is limitless things to do in this historic city. However, you have truly not experienced this city without trying some of the local cuisine, this can be found in the night markets where the streets are filled with vendors selling local street food, this includes markets such as Tainan Flower Night Market, Da Dong Night Market and Anping Old Street, which is situated near the Anping Old Fort. So pack your bag and make sure to keep an eye on the time, because we are heading back in time!

40. Dubai

The next destination on the list is located in the North of the United Arab Emirates, Dubai. This city if filled with some of the most interesting and extravagant architecture in the world! Some go to Dubai to stare at the buildings, some dream to go to the top of the Burj Khalifa, however, the main attraction for pilots and aviation enthusiasts is the aerial view of the Palm Jebel Ali and the Palm Jumeirah islands. One other thing many tourists like to do is rent a supercar and speed down the highway towards the baron desert where you can see the tall sand dunes and empty roads. So pack your bags and make sure you do not forget clothes that entirely cover you as to abide by the culture, because we are heading to Dubai!

41. Slovakia

The next destination on the list is a country located in the centre of Europe, Slovakia. This country is home to historical sites and natural beauty, usually found together. With many beautiful castles and ruins placed on the top of hills, hikers will adore this country! However, Slovakia also offers the ability to try a local twist on skiing. Known as Uphill Skiing, it starts with you walking up the mountain before sliding down it at full speed. Because there is no commercial domestic flights within Slovakia, we can not fulfil the domestic route this time. So pack your bags and make sure you bring your skis and hiking boots, because we are heading to Slovakia!

42. Alice Springs

The next destination on the list is located in the centre of Australia and the South of the Northern Territory, Alice Springs. Being located in the middle of the Outback, this town is surrounded by natural beauty, giving easy access to the wildlife and local hiking spots. While in Alice Springs it is highly advised to rent a hot air balloon to watch the sun rise over the red Australian horizon. But just make sure not to drift into the flight path of the local airport! So put on your hiking shoes and make sure to pack plenty of sun tan lotion, because we are heading down under!

43. Cayman Islands

image

The next destination on the list is an island nation located in the Caribbean, the Cayman Islands! Known by many as the place they talk about sending illegal money in movies and retiring to live a relaxing on the beach, this beautiful nation offers some of the most picturesque views I have seen in a long time! While I can only condone the actions of the second thing this island is known for, I am sure I am not the only one that wants to be swallowed by the sound of the crashing waves and swaying palm trees. For those interesting in scuba diving (like myself) you can find an array of marine life below the surface, making this a MUST GO destination for divers! Since the IRL flight performed by British Airways from London Heathrow to Grand Cayman is via the Nassau both ways, we too will perform this stop. Since this destination is also a country, we shall be performing a domestic flight. So grab a coconut and relax in your hammock, because we are heading to the Caribbean!

The next destination on the list is the capital of the US state Tennessee, Nashville. This is one of my locations for the following reason and the following reason alone, Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich. I have always wanted to try an authentic one from Nashville as I have to question how authentic it is even when made by Americans here in Hong Kong. Other than that tourists can get a cruise and head down the Cumberland River and enjoy the night lights. To get some diversity in airlines we are operating out of Hong Kong so every flight is not Cathay Pacific, I have chosen to fly the Singapore Airlines flight from Singapore to San Francisco via Hong Kong. Obviously per the rules I will be joining that route from Hong Kong. So loosen your belts and prepare for spicy, because we are heading to Nashville!
