For travelers that have always dreamed of discovering South East Asia but were afraid of the price of the airline ticket, fear no more, we will show you how to get the most out of your airline ticket to South East Asia.
South East Asia multiple cities for less:
We recommend using the vayama.com website to grab a ticket on China Airlines to Bangkok; I have just spotted a ticket for $730 total from San Francisco to Bangkok including a stop in Hong Kong.
How do you book it?
Select the multiple city option on top of the vayama .com website’s ”Find a flight” box: The first flight will be from San Francisco to Hong Kong. The second flight will be from Hong Kong to Bangkok and the third flight from Bangkok back to San Francisco. The China Airlines hub is Taipei, so you can select a long layover there and hit the town for a bonus Asian city visit, all for only $730 from San Francisco, not bad. You can also request the same itinerary from New York or Los Angeles.
Bangkok is the hub of South East Asia:
Once you are in Bangkok, you have most South East Asian capitals at your fingertips, here is a list of destinations where you can fly to from $150 each way from Bangkok: Cambodia (Siam Reap & Phnom Penh), Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City & Hanoi), Bangalore, Delhi, Singapore, Phuket & More.
