By linking together a series of incredible flight deals, the Airfare Spot has created a new around-the-world trip for only $1,073.

In case you missed their $1,161 trip around the world, you can now experience a similar itinerary for an even better price.

This two-week, globetrotting journey departs New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport on March 20. From there, board a non-stop Norwegian Air Shuttle flight to Stockholm, Sweden, for just $179.

With only one full day in the city, we recommend prioritizing with our top things to do in Stockholm: Take a ferry around the city’s many islands, including Djurgården, which boasts a collection of interesting museums; grab a glass of wine at Gondolen, which offers overwater views of Lake Malären; and get tickets for a performance at the Royal Opera House.

From there, an 11-hour flight on the afternoon of March 21 will take you directly to Bangkok. At this time, a number of super-cheap tickets are available on Swedish booking sites like Opodo and Travellink. But for only 1,403 Swedish Krona (roughly $157 U.S. dollars) you can spend three full days in the frenetic capital of Thailand.

After filling up on xiao long bao (handmade pork dumplings) and salty-sweet salapoo lava from the 24-hour outpost, Hong Bao, you can fly to Auckland, New Zealand, for only $223.

With a 13-hour layover in Kuala Lumpur, travelers have a full day to check out the Malaysian city.

On March 26, you arrive in Auckland, New Zealand, where you’ll remain until your return flight home to New York City on April 2. The world’s largest Polynesian city, also known as Tamaki Makaurau, is a glittering harbor-front gem. Take a wine-tasting trip through the area’s 30 plus vineyards, and eat plenty of haute Kiwi food.

For less than $600 (flight prices have been fluctuating wildly) you’ll return to New York City via Newark Liberty International Airport, with a brief layover in San Francisco. Tack on a few days in New York City before returning home, and you will have visited five major global cities in two weeks for just over $1,000.
