Some tips on the best flight passes for 3 months in SE Asia

Jump to last reply

Hi All,


A lot of the websites I have trawled through seem to have a lot of outdated information on the cheapest way to fly between countries in SE Asia. Various air passes are mentioned but many have either stopped or seem hard to find information about. I was hoping people here would be able to point me in the correct direction or know an answer.

So if I wanted to travel this summer in SE Asia and stop at lets say Bangkok, Hanoi, Kuala Lumpar, Tokyo, Shanghai and Hong Kong what would be the most affordable way to do it?

Many thanks

Please point me in a different direction on this site if I have posted in the wrong forum.

    If you were just traveling in SE Asia, the Bangkok Air Discovery Pass is the best pass. It covers the cities they fly to in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, VN and Burma. You need at least three legs on Bangkok Air to qualify. The pass must be purchased before you get to SEA.

    Your itinerary is all over east Asia. You might do well to consider the air passes from either Cathay Pacific (Hong Kong based) or Malaysian Air based in KL. The problem with these passes is that you have you go through the base city to get anywhere. So from Tokyo to, say Shangahi. you'd have to connect through KL for Malaysian Air or Hong Kong for Cathay. These passes can only be purchased in conjunction with your flight to Asia.

    You might also consider simply using budget airlines rather than an Air Pass. There are a number to look at, most notably Air Asia. It doesn't cover all of your destinations, however.

    You might want to pause and reconsider your itinerary. It usually works best to choose one area - like SE Asia, so you don't have a lot of long flights. Also, you don't say where you are coming from, but you might be able to get a stopover on your flight from home to cover one city. For instance, from the US, many people have to fly through Tokyo, so a two or three night stopover is a possibility (Tokyo is the city farthest from your other destinations).
