Southeast Asia holds many a treasure for adventurous travelers, including some of the world’s most spectacular manmade wonders and natural marvels. We found well-priced deals to get you there, from Cambodia’s stunning Angkor Wat temples to the rainforests of Borneo and the island paradise of Malaysia’s Langkawi. Air and hotel packages to these stellar destinations now start at only $1,530!
Borneo holiday from $1,530
Just off the coast of Malaysia lies the captivating island of Borneo, with its lush jungles; a strong indigenous culture; and beguiling historical sights. Now you can visit it with the Asian Affair Holidays special at a super-low price of $1,530! This five-night holiday covers air from San Francisco or Los Angeles (just $60 extra from New York); lodging with daily breakfast at one of two luxurious resorts — the Shangri-la's Tanjung Aru Resort or Rasa Ria Resort; and a lunch-inclusive day trip to scenic Coral Island. This low price is good for travel between March 27 and 31 only.
Singapore & Langkawi for $1,688
Another terrific Southeast Asian destination is Malaysia’s Langkawi archipelago in the Andaman Sea. Rich in folklore and legends, this cluster of 99 islands provides an ideal tropical retreat. You can check it out, together with Singapore, with the Asian Affair Holidays package for $1,688. Good for departures through March 31, this six-night city and beach escape comes with airfare from San Fransisco or L.A. ($60 extra from N.Y.); airport transfers; deluxe lodging; and a couple of tours (a half-day city tour of Singapore and a half-day island-hopping tour in Langkawi).
Singapore & Cambodia for $1,570
Another trip we recommend: combine the city-state of Singapore and Cambodia’s marvelous Angkor Wat temple complex and you’re in for a real treat! This exact itinerary is currently on sale by Asian Affair Holidays for $1,570. Good for departures through March 31, it covers airfare from L.A. or San Fransisco ($60 more from N.Y.); two nights’ upscale lodging in Singapore, with a half-day city tour; three nights in the jungle town of Siem Reap (the gateway for Angkor Wat), with two full-day temple tours; all transfers; and daily breakfasts.
The rates above are listed per person, based on double occupancy. Accommodation may be wonderfully affordable once on the ground, but the cost of flying to Southeast Asia is known to break the bank. Indeed, if you take only the cost of airfare to these far-flung destinations, you’ll found it can rise as high as the price of these hotel-inclusive packages.
