Discount airlines for flights around SE Asia

Posted by jordan on 4/11/2010 at 07:56

Hi all,

I am planning a trip to South East Asia in December. I am thinking to fly roundtrip to Bangkok (from Los Angeles), but want to spend my time divided between Thailand and Vietnam (possibly stopping in Laos or Cambodia for a couple of days on route). I will have a little under a month, so want to expedite the trip with a few flights around the region.

So far I have looked at Air Asia, but am having trouble comparison shopping on local flights. What airlines should I look at, and are there any aggregators (like Travelocity, Orbitz, etc) that cover that area? Any other tips to save?

Some example flights I am considering are things like Bangkok -> Chang Mai, Bangkok -> Hanoi , Hanoi -> Hue, HCMC -> Bangkok.

Thanks,
Jordan

It's hard to beat Air Asia for prices, especially if you book online and a week or two in advance (Promo Fares). The other Thailand-based budget airline to look at is Nok Air, and in Vietnam check out Jetstar.

Very cool, thanks. If I am planning to take 3-4 'local' flights is it usually cheaper to book them individually, or is there some kind of grouping/unlimited flight plan that may be worthwhile?
