A welcome change from the usual cities

  • Direct flights from Singapore to a beautiful beach resort town in western Australia will soon be a reality
    Cable Beach in Broome, Australia

The closest you can get to traveling out of Asia would be to fly to anywhere in Australia (it is, technically, a continent on its own). It only takes about seven hours to get to anywhere on the East coast of Australia (Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast), and about five hours to the West coast (Perth). But apart from the usual cities to visit, there's also an underrated beach resort town of Broome you probably haven’t heard of. And soon, you'll be able to fly there directly thanks to SilkAir.

This new route between Singapore and Broome comes after a partnership between Broome businesses, Broome International Airport, Australia's North West regional tourism organization and SilkAir. Come June next year, the airline will be running four return trial flights between the two cities on a 737 aircraft.

Flight fares and schedules are currently in the works, but while you're at it, you might want to do a bit of research on what you can do in Broome. You could perhaps take a ride on a camel on Cable Beach during sunset, try a variety of craft beers at the iconic Matso's Brewery that overlooks Roebuck Bay, or check out dinosaur-roamed sites.
