Find cheap tickets in asia

The best place to land is the airport of Bangkok during midweek to avoid the business-class travellers and weekend travellers. All major cities around the world have airlines that offer special rates for this destination. It is also possible to find great rates for flights to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia or Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Thailand remains one of the best choices as home base for your adventure. Thailand offers a free one-month visa on arrival and lots of beautiful destinations, activities and tourist attractions with outstanding efficient transport at low cost. Many travellers choose to spend a month in the south beaches and in the north with rice fields, mountains and exotic minority.

From there, Southeast Asia awaits you with its many interesting destinations. There are Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, China and many surrounding countries like Myanmar and Hong Kong. While it is good to have a return ticket prepared, it’s even better to arrange your itinerary when you are already in Asia. Visit your local Chinatown, there are good discounts if you know how to find the right place and be a friend of the owners, all members of the Asian community visit and return by buying their tickets in these institutions.

The question of time and money are the only unknowns that may affect your journey in the orient. Although transportation in Asia is much more accessible than Europe or America, the time required to travel the same distances can often be multiplied by five. For example, the bus connecting the capital Vientiane to Luang Prabang in Laos takes an average of 10 hours to travel the 435 kilometres between them. The hazardous mountain roads will shake your butt non-stop. The train from Bangkok to Nong Khai in the north near the Lao border takes 10 hours by train or car to travel 615 kilometres.

For Vietnam and Thailand, you might consider the train for your travels around the countries or for short distances. If you have time the train is a good way to save money, to see the world, meet interesting people and share the daily lives of residents. Visit the website for for more information on this. Otherwise, the bus will take you from city to city for a cheap fee. Rent a bicycle, motorcycle, car and get lost deeper where the adventure awaits you.

For people in hurry or those who prefer more comfort, it will be smart to find discount flights on budget carriers. Several companies serve the area:

Air Asia, Tiger Airways, Valuair Limited, Nok Air, One-Two-Go, Cebu Pacific Air, Bangkok Airways and Jet Star just to name a few.

By stopping in Singapore, Bangkok or other major cities, instead of flying directly to your final destination, you can save big money by taking small carriers; simply because there are more flights and more competition. Another important point to reduce transportation costs is to avoid the busy holiday periods, special events and festivals. If you want to participate in these revelries, be sure to arrive before everyone.

A few quick tips:
  1. Fly midweek
  2. Take your vacation during the off season
  3. Consider flying to a city near your real destination and take alternative transport such as rail or bus
  4. Always fly to the city that offers more flights
  5. Choose the unknown carriers, not the national carrier, to purchase the cheapest ticket to Asia (Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Phnom Penh)

Tips for finding your domestic flights or to neighbouring countries

After arriving in Asia buy your flights on budget carriers. Asia has an abundance of low-cost airlines offering frequent and reliable connections. A one way ticket to another part of the continent costs as little as $ 100, $ 50 or less. Sometimes we see flights from Luang Prabang in Laos to Hanoi in Vietnam for $ 28 or $ 5 for domestic flights!

There are price comparison sites, but these are not consistent for budget carriers. You can always take a look, but to have a real sounding you should visit all the official websites of these carriers to discover « super Deal ».

You can also visit a popular site like – I love the interface that gives us the best prices near the date we want. Is more practical than trying a date- by- date.
Try on both,, ZUJI. com

Always check the rates on the official site, choose the best deal possible, and check back frequently, as prices and availability are in constant motion.

In Asia, unlike in its Western counterparts, it’s sometimes an advantage to visit the local travel agencies. Ask them for the best price they can offer. Particularly in Laos which has expensive rates online.

If you have to go to Asia for a special occasion, like a wedding, it is best to book in advance. Prices rise and fall according to demand and supply. So make sure you periodically review and make the right choice. Be flexible about the place you want to go and when you want to go.

For flights over the Pacific and Atlantic, or between two continents start by visiting the main compare prices sites like Expedia, Orbitz and Kayak find the best prices and to visit the official company as sometimes you can have ‘pleasant surprises’.

It is interesting to fly to a destination and flight back by another. You can save a lot of time and money and peace of mind. Long distance tickets are often more advantageous and flexible if they are taken round trip.
