Voice of Travelers to Darwin

My Darwin Trekking Adventure

I have bought tickets going to natural locations all over the world for trekking adventures. Many fellow trekkers on my travels have told me how good the hiking and nature is around Darwin, so Darwin has been on my list of destinations to buy a ticket there for a long time. After spending a few months planning my trip and organizing my work for when I was away, I was finally prepared for my Darwin trekking trip. My transfer ticket into Darwin was with Jetstar Asia Airways out of Singapore. I had never even heard of this airline before, so I was a little nervous about buying a ticket from them, but the flight ended up going smoothly and the service was of a high standard, especially because they offer discount ticket prices for trips inside of Asia and Oceania

Darwin Is a Great Place for a Honeymoon

I knew very little about Darwin when my wife suggested that we buy tickets there for our honeymoon. Darwin is a small city in a very sparsely populated part of Australia, so I did not think that there was much to do there that would make our tickets worthwhile. I was very wrong. We found some reasonably priced tickets with Jetstar Air Asia out of Singapore, who offered a quick and comfortable flight with a great lunch. When we arrived in Darwin, my wife bought us tickets for nature tours in the region surrounding Darwin, which is some of the most beautiful in the world.

Choosing Darwin for a Cheap Getaway

My mates and I have been talking about getting away from our jobs and families for a while, but we just never managed to find the time and the money for tickets. Then one day I noticed a cheap ticket sale to Darwin with Philippine Airlines. I bought enough tickets for the whole group, and told everyone that we were taking a weekend in Darwin whether they liked it or not. We all packed into the plane with our tickets for Darwin, and had a really fun flight over. The airline staff were great, making sure that we had enough drinks and food to keep us entertained. Darwin is full of great bars and restaurants, so we had a really fun time just eating and drinking all weekend. It was definitely worth the ticket price to Darwin.
