Delissa has indicated that this thread is about Thailand

Hi everyone.

I'm venturing off to Thailand around the end of March from Japan. Afterwards I will be going to Korea, so I will be needing to buy a one way flight ticket from Bangkok to Seoul. So far I have only found one online travel agency in Bangkok---Charlie Connection. Have any of you gone through them? Are they legit? If so, are their fares pretty reasonable?
Also while on the topic of travel agencies, would anyone know of any discount travel agencies that have a website based in South Korea? After my travels in South Korea, I will be heading back to Japan so I will be needing another one way ticket. I would appreciate any information you are able to provide. Thanks in advance!

If anyone is traveling to Thailand and Korea around the end of March-April, let me know. I'd love to meet up as I will be traveling alone.;)

Depends. The guys i know at "Air Booking Network" used to work at Charlies Connections,and i've used these 2 guys when they were with that. I continue to use them now, even though it doesn't appear they're directly related to "Charlies Connections" anymore (even though the agency where they work, is located in the same place). But when they did work for them, i used Charlies Connections several times. It's possible that this"Air booking Network" may also work with 'Charlies Connections', and that would explain the same staff and good prices.

I've used these two guys many times, for major flights either within the region or back to the UK. I find they offer some very good prices, and that's why i keep coming back to them. Plus, the two guys who work there are friendly,have loads of time for you,and dont sigh when you come in and ask for advice (unlike elsewhere on that road). Something about them, makes them "seem" like they're not to be trusted. But, my experience has been totally positive over several years. So they're doing something right. Flights i've taken with them over several years include, back to the UK a few times, one flight to Hong Kong, a return flight to Yangon last year, and several times from Bangkok to Calcutta. On KSR, their agency is a tiny little box of a place. But give it a try anyway. But, if you're booking things over email i cannot guarantee you'll get the best prices as being there.

If you want to know the exact location of them. It's :

163 Khaosan Road,
Phrankakorn,
Bangkok

Hey, thanks for the replies. I think I will be buying an open-jaw ticket from Japan and the one-way from Thailand to Seoul when I'm there. I guess I shouldn't be too worried about.

Just for the record, I've used Charlie Connection myself, and their service was outstanding.
