In Feb 2017, AirAsia X announced that it will be flying to Honolulu from Kuala Lumpur (via Osaka Kansai) from 28 June 2017 onwards. For the first time ever, a low-cost carrier is flying over North Pacific, linking East Asia (and Southeast Asia) with North America.

With promotional fare from Hawaii to Kuala Lumpur as low as 199 USD, it set me thinking: how much do I need to spend on airfares to travel around the world?

To my surprise, it’s actually possible to do it for 800 USD (~1,180 SGD)!

In the rest of the series, I will share how to travel between the different continents on a budget and hopefully you will be inspired to plan your own round the world trip!
