Australia goes from 'best job' to 'best taxi ride'




PERTH, Australia : Australian tourism authorities are seeking five foreign couples to take part in what is touted as the world's longest, and most extraordinary, taxi ride.

Building on last year's highly successful "Best Job in the World" campaign, officials are hoping to promote remote and rugged Western Australia by launching the "Extraordinary Taxi Ride".

In a nine-week journey over some 11,000 kilometres of road, five couples -- one from New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, Germany and Britain -- will travel the state in the back of a taxi.

The couples, along with six Australian pairs, will travel one section each of the 11-leg journey, which starts in Perth on April 9 and traverses Outback and the beach-lined west coast before winding north to ex-pearling centre Broome.
