I wondered if anyone could help with a question we have please??

We are due to fly out at the start of December this year for a year travelling.

Our route is

Thailand (4 weeks)
Laos (4)
Vientnam (4)
Cambodia (2)
Thialand (south) (3)
malaysia (1)
Indonesia (16)
Aus - Mel (4)
Inidia (12)

The weeeks are only a rough estimate.

We went to Sta travel to book our flights yesterday and we have 2 choices

Qantus £1295
Manchester - Bangkok
Singapore - Melbourne
Melbourne - Mumbai
Mumbai - Manchester


Emirates - £1275
Manchester - Bangkok (Via Dubai)
Singapore - Melbourne
Melbourne - Singapore
Mumbai - Manchetser (we will need to buy an internal from bang/sing to mumbai)

I just wondered given all of the above, which one is the best deal? OR will we get a better deal elsewhere OR would it be cheaper to taylor our own flights and get them as we go?

Thanks for any help, and taking time to read this!

Well it's only a twenty quid dif between the two tickets... both strike me as pretty reasonable value ... but the Sing/bang to mumbai ticket will cost you more than 20, so I'd go with the first ticket.
