The first attempt at a fully independent travel using only the iPhone I took 2 years ago. It was Israel. There I tested extensively this way, and I know all the pitfalls of this method, such as an error in routing purposes Google maps and features local simok the Internet.

Now, about that route. A ticket for round-trip flight gave me Emirates, for which a special thank you to them, but they had a limit: for the flight to Australia had to pay almost 600 bucks. And then I remembered that a couple of tourists from Hong Kong, Peter advised me to fly to Asia on aircraft AirAsia. A little digging on the hop and it turned out that from Bangkok to Sydney is 2 times cheaper than the co-payment directly. The next step is to fuck a cheap flight – subscribe to the newsletter AirAsia and forward sales. You could use the same service at Kayak.com, but somehow he does not give those handy flights that are at AirAsia booking directly. Therefore Kayak past. In general, you want to get a ticket at a reasonable price – look at the sites of a / c, neither Skyscanner, or kayak will not let such an opportunity.

So, all you need for the trip – iPhone and bank card. But in my experience cards need at least two. All depends on the different policies of banks and security system verification for payments over the Internet. Before leaving please contact your bank and check for blocking the card is in the country where you are going. This is especially true in poor countries. Maps desirable to have a different banks. Do not be afraid to normal Savings Card “Visa-Electron”, I used it in many countries and had no problems. Also, once I was saved Tinkova card, it is not required for confirmation sms with payment.

Still need a second phone, it does not have to be iPhone, dig though old Nokiyu 3310. The main thing is that it took you an SMS to which there is a connection of your cards. On the iPhone you insert local SIM cards to have internet at a reasonable price.

It now remains to upload phone applications for the trip. Something I’ve tried, found something new. Just a good excuse to try out all the reality of what I am going to tell you as we go.

Now, about the route: Thailand – Cambodia – Malaysia – Indonesia – Australia – Philippines – Hong Kong – China. All this for 24 days. 13 flights, 8 countries, more than 41,000 km journey by air and only 4000 km in Australia camper to the “heart” of the continent – Mount Uluru.
