Southeast Asia is already quite the backpacker’s paradise: cheap costs, delicious foods, an abundance of history, hundreds of cultures, etc. But now, a new deal lets travelers hop around between cities in the ASEAN community for just $160!
The ASEAN countries (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) are made up of ten Southeast Asian countries, including: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam. And with a special deal from AirAsia, you can visit all of these countries for pennies on the dollar.
AirAsia is a Malaysian-owned airline that is large enough to include subsidiaries throughout Southeast Asia. It tries to follow a budget-travel style similar to Norwegian. Now, they’ve rolled out a travel pass that allows travel between city pairs within these ASEAN countries on a credit system.
There are two tiers of their new AirAsia Asean Pass: For $160, you get 10 credits with up to 30 days of validity; for $290, you get 20 credits with 60 days of validity. Now, you can fly to all 10 countries, it seems, for only $160 – an irrefutable bargain. However, some city pairs cost more than one credit each; other flights cost three credits.
Here’s an example:
