The seats may not quite be as wide and weighty as they once were, but we’re living in a modern day travel renaissance. Why, you say? Because you can see the far reaches of the world for under $400 round trip. Thailand is one of those places you can’t go through life without seeing, and if you’ve been hoping to get there on a budget, there are flight deals from $375 round trip right now, which is about as low as it gets. Here’s how to snag one of those great offers…
China Eastern, a SkyTeam airline, is offering the very lowest prices, but quite a few airlines with even better economy experiences are in the same range. Either way: you can get yourself to Bangkok and taste your way through the culinary delights and beautiful sights for under $400.
The best deals are available from: Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and Chicago.
In case you were wondering, ANA is the other airline offering exceptionally good deals, and they are phenomenal, plus you have the opportunity to stop in Tokyo on the way. Even a little Tokyo is better than no Tokyo…
Whether you plan to taste your way through the night markets of Bangkok and explore temples and the Chao Praya by day, or branch off further afield to heavenly hiking in Chiang Mai, or hop the border to Vietnam, getting a great deal feels nice, and with just one stop in each direction, these deals really aren’t a bad way to get there.
You’ll find the lowest offers for departures on a Tuesday, Thursday or Sunday in February or March of 2020, which gives you some time to plan – and save. The minimum stay requirement is only a few days, but obviously you’ll enjoy yourself a lot more if you can sneak out a week or more.
Just tell your boss you’re doing market research in Asia, they’re known for understanding. Right? What are holiday days for anyway?
