It is without resistance to try the Tiger holiday packages from Singapore to Langkawi and Boracay, roughly 200-300 dollars 3 days return, 2 nights stay.
Thursday rush flights from Singapore to China would cost roughly $55-$100 plus tax. Crazy fare is to Phuket, Kuala Lumpur, Krabi, Ho Chi Minh. The fare to Maldives is great as well, $55 plus tax.
While jetstar headquartered in Wuhan, China and cancelled its Hangzhou stop one year ago, Tiger air has direct flight to Ningbo, my home town, with a higher fare than other cities. With high speed train connecting between Shanghai and Ningbo, Hangzhou to Ningbo, it is fine to stop in Shanghai or Hangzhou, then transfer to Ningbo.
I gonna fly airasia from Gold Coast to Hangzhou in a few days, with a cheap fare as well.
Flying back by a stop in Singapore, then travel to neibouring countries before the destination of Australia is an option. Or I take a domestic trip in China from East to South, Nanning city, then take a train to Vietnam, travel the Yalong Bay, all the way down to Ho Chi Minh, then fly to Singapore.
In early Sept., a flight from Brisbane to Darwin is on promotion for $109. My favorate place Kakadu NP is reducingly good to go. A flight to Darwin could make you jump over to the Papa Nuigini and fly to Philippine, or jump over to East Timor to see the pink beach.
So I booked a return flight from Singapore to Maldive on promotion with resort one night free. What a great offer!
