Tokio|Singapur|Hongkong|Bangkok|San Francisco|Dubai


On the way from Europe to Down Under take the opportunity and have a look around on of the famouse asian metroplitan cities. Airlines fly via Bangkok, Singapore or Hongkong to several destinations in Australia. There is also good connection via Narita (Tokyo). To get to Hawaii, the south pacific or New Zealand it might be quicker going west via Los Angeles. Many travel packages offer a stop over for little more money. Lots of exotic, modern architecture and good shopping is waiting for you!

In November 2002 there have been three companys operating public transport in Tokyo. Another company - another ticket!

It is hard to believe, but almost no one in Tokyo speaks english. That means you are pretty much on your own trying to find your way. Have an english guide book and a map with you.

This machine has got a button to switch the language to english. That does not help you much without an english map...

But this city is a pretty safe place even if you get lost in one of the small roads in the middle of the night. in a box in Tokyo big building, Tokyo
Every box looks like a washing machine, but it is an appartement with all necessary equippment.
