Travel Forums Asia Where to buy the cheapest Asia to Asia flights?

I live in Philippines and I travel a LOT to Thailand, and other places, and I really want to get to Japan and see Tokyo for the first time

I've tried JapanAir, ThaiAirways, PhilippineAir, China-Air, Travelocity, etc etc and nothing seems to get me a decent price to Japan, everything is $600+

Anyone know the very cheapest flight websites from Asia to an Asian destination?

Or do you think it's best to do travel agents here?

I know that airasia fly from Clarke to Kuala Lumpur & Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia. Sorry I don't know about budget airlines from the Philippnes to Japan.

So, I've checked jetstarasia.com, and since you spend much time in Thailand, u can check if it's worth to fly from BKK to Sydney or any other city in Australia, and then from there to Osaka (japan) also with jetstarasia.
I'm not sure if it is the cheapest possibility, and web site isnt workimg right now so i haven't checked, but you should defenetely give it a try.. hope this helps

Hi Zach,

When do you plan to go to Japan? There is a travel fair in Kuala Lumpur on 22-24 September at the Putra World Trade Centre. While the prices may not be very low, they're still a good deal. And if I'm not wrong, Malaysia Airlines will have discounts on its tickets during the fair.

Since you're in the Philippines, I don't think you could see many promo ads online as the travel agents advertise mainly in the local newspapers. So if you're really interested, I could keep a watch for you on the ads for Japan. Just give me a tinker via PM in the next Monday or Tuesday to remind me. :)

Hi Hien, thanks for your tip, and about when i want to go to Japan, well, i plan to fly to Bangkok for 1 week to hang with a friend from my hometown, then afterwards i want to hit Japan (early oct) but ONLY if i can afford it, if the prices of flights arent too high

so if you know how i can get to Japan for cheapest price i'd love to hear your suggestions on that :)

thanks a lot

Hey, nice to see someone from the Philippines here.

Unfortunately, everything heading to Japan seems to be expensive. By a general rule of thumb, the local carrier, PAL is more expensive than other airlines. You can perhaps try Cebu Pacific and head on to Hongkong, or take Tiger Airways to Macau. From HKG/MFM, you'll have to check prevailing rates heading to Japan. Good luck!

ETA: Forgot to add that the general price range taking the budget carriers out of Manila (Clark) is around 60 USD, so you might want to factor that in your consideration.
