Asia is a huge continent with great diversity. Visit this unique and amazing continent and make your dream come true with cheap flights to Asia. This awesome destination is simply great to visit, whether you are traveling to India, Japan, Nepal, Siberia, Turkmenistan, North Korea, Singapore, Thailand, China, South Korea or other countries. Budget travelers find it easy to spend few months and traverse the entire length and breadth of this massive continent with limited financial resources at their disposal. If you are planning to go on a trip to various countries in Asia, and already in the process of booking your cheap tickets, then here are some of the great tips to follow. Believe me, following these beneficial tips would make your travel smooth and hassle free.


If you are a budget traveler and decided to spend your savings on a trip to the fabulous trip to the Asian continent, then you have absolutely made a perfectly right decision. It is always better to do budget planning before undertaking a trip to any destination. This helps you plan your visit better and spend wisely. Now it’s time for you to book Air China flights or by other international airlines, such as Korean Air, China Airlines, Philippine Airlines and others. But before you have already booked your flight tickets to Asia, it will be best to divide the continent into 3 areas – the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia and Asia-Pacific. All the three areas have their own characteristics, and you’ll find glaring differences here.

I will suggest that you first plan your trip to the Indian Subcontinent. It’s a world unto itself and by far among the cheapest places to visit on this Planet Earth. This is absolutely the best destination for shoestring travelers. The popular countries to visit are obviously India and Nepal. However, most of the travelers also prefer visiting Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Maldives as well. The prices are dirt cheap in all these places and the tourists have a gala time visiting these countries.

The tourists find their visit to India as one of the most thrilling and enlivening. Most of them consider it among the maddening places in the world. India with its diverse people, religion and culture presents a riot of colors. The visitors here are treated to some of the fantastic sights. Shopping in the country is also most sought after pastime for the visitors as they get souvenirs and other artifacts at astounding bargain prices. The mountainous Nepal is also among the favorite destinations for the tourists. The mighty Himalayas instantly attract a large number of foreign tourists round the year. For budget travelers, the country is a veritable paradise. They get the best accommodation, food and sightseeing opportunities at cheaper prices. Both the countries are chock-a-block with bedraggled backpackers. You will get thrilling experience in both the countries, without ever getting any feelings of boredom!

There are many more countries to visit in Asian continent. All you need is to book flights to Asia and take back memorable moments along with you when returning home.

    While talking about budget traveling I wonder how you missed mentioning India by Rail. I agree to get into India you will need a flight but that’s just the first step. More expenses are incurred when a tourist is traveling around and I believe you should have mentioned how to travel budget mixing Indian Railways, State Bus services when after one’s arrival in the country as most of the money is spent here.

    But if you just intended to talk about how to get to a country from abroad then I must say its a good try.
