Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
well, the entire trip was March to June 1985, New Zealand to France. It was in fact when I emigrated, though that wasn't clear to me at the time.

Flight to Singapore. Bus and taxi in Malaysia. Train to Bangkok, flight to Hong Kong, flight to Japan (train, boat, hitch hiking). Back to HK, train to Guangzhou, then as described, then all the way down the river from Chongqing to Shanghai, etc. Seven weeks in China, then a week from Beijing to Moscow, then train again to (east) Berlin. Metro to "the west", then ride share to France.

This was before cheap air travel, and ignoring the side trips, our diversified transport from NZ to Europe was substantially cheaper than a direct flight.
