Scoot’s network of 66 ports stretches to destinations in 18 countries – allowing the more adventurous traveller the chance to explore lesser known gems like Sapporo, Seoul, Hainan, Cebu, Hangzhou, Harbin, Honolulu and Hyderabad.

Scoot might be one of the newer names in travel, with the airline’s first flights from Australia taking to the sky in 2012, but the Singapore-based brand has already developed some seriously sassy Scootitude.

While other airlines stuck to tried and tested city pairs and routes when they turned seven, Scoot is now carrying adventure hungry passengers of all ages to 66 destinations in 18 countries including three long-hauls past Singapore, to Athens, Berlin and Honolulu.

Scoot’s fleet of 787 Dreamliners depart four Australian airports – Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth so Aussie’s can start ticking those far-off fantasies and to get started, here are eight adventure-worthy sites now on the Scoot map.




Kick off a day in the Thai capital by bartering for bargains at the Chatuchak Weekend Market, explore the Chao Phraya’s floating markets and waterside temples all afternoon, and finish the trip with after-dark drinks at a sky-scraping bar.

Want to head further afield? Check out Hat Yai for the Khlong Hae Floating Market, Hua Hin for its beach-side village chills or Pattaya for its beach party vibe.




Venture north to India’s holy Sikh city that has retained its heritage while embracing the contemporary and call on “the Berlin Wall of Asia” during the daily flag-raising ceremony – a tradition that’s endured since 1959 – and linger by the water at the serene Golden Temple.

Want more of India? Scoot flies to seven cities including Hyderabad and Chennai.




The Japanese capital is also a centre of contradiction where the population of 10 million embrace traditions – think sake bars, shrines and sumo tournaments – while celebrating everything that’s innovative like robot hotels, bullet trains and high-tech cafes.

Want the world’s finest powder snow? Fly with Scoot to the ski city Sapporo for all the ski action of Niseko and Furano.



Few cities can claim a recent history as colourful as the German capital and travellers can touch on the traditional by wandering Christmas markets or make the most of the modern by dining in a pop-up restaurant where cool young chefs cook up a storm and dance the night away at the myriad techno nightclubs.




The Greek capital is the gateway to a country promising year-round fun from island hopping in summer, Athens city stays when agreeable autumn temps arrive, to skiing while the weather is chilly and hiking around Meteora’s hilltop monasteries once springtime wildflowers bloom.

Scoot Tip: stay just out of The metropolis in the Athenian Riviera at Vouliagmeni, for char-grilled octopus and ouzo on the beach.




Asia’s Lion City and Scoot’s hub is a foodie paradise boasting everything from Michelin-rated restaurants to energetic hawker centres as well as rooftop bars and restaurants, hidden clubs and cocktail lounges, urbane bakeries, instagrammable cafes and chic coffee shops.

Escape the city for a day whilst in Singapore and head on a ferry to cyclist friendly Pulau Ubin, Batam or golf crazy Bintan Island.



One of the 19 Chinese ports on Scoot’s network, the island is a stone’s throw from Hong Kong, and whilst most famous for the glitzy casinos and even glitzier hotels, visitors should savour the colonial-era architecture and atmosphere on streets settled by the Portuguese and make time to indulge in the famous Portuguese tarts that are a signature treat.

Scoot Tip: seek out the famous fortune tellers in the small parks and gardens.




The Maldives feature on every wish list of dreamy destinations for sunseekers, greeted by gin-clear water, world class diving, surfing and sunsets.

The Maldives offer a vast range of exclusive island resorts, catering for couples and families, that are ready to make island paradise dreams come true.



The Scoot network is on sale now with dynamite deals to be had on flights cris-crossing the skies to 66 exciting and exotic destinations, discounted until November 11, with more information on the airline available on the website below.
