3 to 4 weeks South America...Reaaly need your Advise.

Jump to last reply

First time to travel to South America, and this may be the last trip for it is extremely expensive especially my air ticket from HONG KONG (around USD2,300 if i go straight to Lima Peru. I need to make the most out of it. My sked is actually flexible i can start off at first week of april till May or last week, middle week, it does not matter. By the way, where can i get the cheapest ticket and which dates are better to get you know cheaper ones. My point of origin is HOng KONG
Until now, i have not decided whether i need to start either Argentina, or Peru or Brazil. But i want to see these countries for 3 weeks or a month.
The highlights of my trip are as follows
Peru, lima, macchu piccu, nazca lines, amazon river/rainforest, lake titicaca, patagonia, iguaza falls, Jesus Christ statue, easter status, galpagos island, ecuador ( where can visit the middle or equator. this is the one i saw in the discovery channel or globetreeking tv clip where U are literally at the middle). If still have the budget i wanna go to the place they called you are the "end of the earth" location in Argetina

I do not mind hostels or guesthouses since i am on tight budget.

I really really appreciate any comments, suggestions or recommendations. To those been in these trip. Please i need your suggestions. I am in dire need to get one organized, easy accessible all the way to these destination. I can start off from HK to Lima, or HK to Buenos Aires, HK to anywhere, i dont mind many stop overs as long as i could save plenty of cash. (i refer to my international flght from hk to any destination i mentioned).

Once in South America, is it better to start from argetina all the way to peru, ecuador or brazil. the other way around. I realy do not know. Taking bus or train i really do not mind.

Can anyone please help me out on this matter.

TRULY apreciate your time in doing my iteneray. It is a dream come true. This may be true if anyone can help. Thanks in advance.
