Want to visit Asia? Book the cheapest ticket you can find. Try getting low season tickets to either Paris or London, spend a day or two, and then hop on Air Asia for about $400 to Bangkok. Air Asia has been voted the best budget airline for several years in a row. It is only 10 years old and growing fast. Yes, it is a budget airline but they do it nicely. Meals are good and reasonable. They can be preordered at a reduced cost. The best part is the cost. Once in Asia it is possible to fly from one country to another at a very low rate. From Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, the far is only $40. From Ho Chi Minh City to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia the fare can be as low as $41.
Their equipment is new, their flight attendants friendly and business is booming. They advertise “now everyone can fly” and it seems that they are. Bouncing from one Asia country to another has never been easier or cheaper. They have over 400 flights to 25 countries
Yes, you have to pay for your luggage but the charge is by the kilo not by the piece. And, like the meals it is reasonable. For tickets to connect to Air Asia via London, Paris, or an Asian destination check with Continental.com.
