We are hoping to go travelling for 3 months (Jul - Sept) to Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. We will be flying from the UK.
Could anyone recommend some good routes for this time of year? I have looked at the weather, and guess that Thailand would be best to visit in July?
Would you recommend buying a return flight from the UK to one of the major cities, and return there from our final destination? Or one way flights each way?
This will be our first travelling experience, so we don't really know where to start!
Any advice would be appreciated.
You might fly from London Heathrow (LHR) to Bangkok (BKK), then return to London from Denpasar (DPS), the airport for Bali. The "open-jaw" fare wouldn't be much more than the roundtrip fare from LHR to BKK. There are inexpensive fares from Singapore (SIN) to Indonesia. Since Malaysia and Indonesia are closer to the equator, they aren't as affected by tropical cyclones as Thailand. Suggest you begin your trip in Thailand, continue through Malaysia to Singapore, then to Indonesia; then home. You'll have a fantastic time.
Thank you, that sounds great!
How do the "open-jaw" fares work? Do you get them direct with certain airlines?
Yes, you buy them from carriers such as Singapore Airlines. On a recent trip, I flew from Atlanta to Mumbai; then returned to Atlanta from Delhi. On another recent trip, I flew from Paris to Lome, Togo; and returned from Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, to Paris.
If you have extra time than i can suggest you should visit bangladesh .
I hope you will be happy to see otter fishing , Old dhaka , Paddle launch and St.martin Island
i dont know about the flight, i live in Bali. and for your more information, start from April in Indonesia is dry season..till the end of September. it would be a perfect time to visit Indonesia. You will find the sunset soo beautiful
I've been planning a trip to South East Asia for about 2-3 months at the end of February/March and i'm absolutely with the idea.
