Changes to 2016 – 2017 List

I am no longer interested in going to India, SE Asia or the Baltic’s. Well, not  in the near future.

My interest waned for the following reasons:

  1. I can not find the trip I  want for the price I want to pay.
  2. Flights to India and SE Asia are long and business class was expensive. I don’t want to fly coach.
  3. No urgency. I realized none of these places will disappear in the near future.

Instead, I have decided to focus on places that may vanish by 2025.

I am going to research Venice, Jordan (Dead sea), China (Yangtze river) and Quebec (Magdalen Islands).

 

The cost of flights  is below:

  1. Venice
    1. New York to Venice, May 25, 2017, 10 nights
    2. Shortest Flight Business Class (8hr(d), 10h(a)) – Delta, United, Lufthansa, Italia – $2929
    3. Shortest Flight Economy Class (8hr(d), 10h(a)) – Delta, United- $1598
  2. Jordan (Dead Sea)
    1. New York to Amman, Oct 13 – Nov 1, 2016
    2. Shortest flight Business Class (11hr(d), 13h(a))  – Royal Jordanian – $3357
    3. Shortest flight  Economy Class (11hr(d), 13h(a))  – Royal Jordanian – $797
  3. China (Yangtze river)
    1. New York to Beijing, May 25,2017,  10 nights
    2. Shortest flight Business Class (16hrs) – Air Canada – $3928
    3. Shortest flight Economy Class (14hrs) – United -$2058
  4.  Quebec
    1. New York to Quebec, Sep 17,2016,  5 nights
    2. Shortest flight First Class (2hrs) – Delta- $388
    3. Shortest flight Economy Class (2hrs) – Delta -$270

Based on the cost of flights, Quebec is the only surety.

Next week, I will start the in-depth research.
