Dulcinea's Insight

  • BootsnAll Travel Network is a site led by seasoned travelers who love a good deal. The site’s experts advise travelers with flexible itineraries to look for flights to Bangkok, Thailand, and Delhi, India; there is much competition between carriers to both of these popular destinations, often resulting in cheap flights.
  • The main international airports in Southeast Asia are in Bangkok and Singapore. Kuala Lumpur is also a possibility, and you can get many cheap flights from Hong Kong into Southeast Asian countries, making it a good midpoint.
  • Vietnam is the only Southeast Asian country reachable by train. Ride the rails from China, Russia, or Europe.
  • If you’re heading to East Asia from the United States, most flights land in Hong Kong; Seoul, South Korea; and Tokyo, Japan. From Europe, it may be more cost-effective to stop over in Bangkok or Singapore, rather than take a direct flight.  
  • The Trans-Siberian Railway can transport you between Russia, China, and Mongolia. WayToRussia.Net provides information about the rail system and a map of the route.
  • From the west coast of the United States, most flights to South Asia stop over in Singapore and Bangkok. East-coast flights typically arrive in South Asia by way of Europe.
  • Going to India? You’re in luck. The number of flights available from the United States and the United Kingdom is growing.
