Great deal went away for two weeks in March this year for £1+ tax total £249 houston. Visited san antonio, Dallas by Megabus which you can book in advance for little as a couple of dollars. Loads to do in texas and great food and friendly people.

Great find, Thank you. Heat added

Search on Skyscanner for other dates available and other booking agents, some giving cash back.

I Booked a week in Sep and used Topcashback on Airlines site and got 3.1% cash back (although its just on the fare element and not the tax part of the price) also the price from airline's website wasn't the cheapest, i did it for the peace of mind.

can I ask places of interest to visit, I prefer beach location is there … can I ask places of interest to visit, I prefer beach location is there any areas to consider



I lived there and wouldn't really recommend the beaches - Galveston is popular the sea is fairly rough but you are near all the major ports.

Corpus Christi/South Padre is really the only beach locations people go to. Matagorda is also fun to go to if you rent a 4x4 and want to drive on the beach and check out the fishermen. You can fly to South Padre with Southwest for peanuts but I really enjoyed the drive down through Victoria.

Edit: San Antonio has a great Six Flags (original I think?) and a large water park attached - that is an easy day trip.

We didn't got for a beach-type holiday so you may be better researching elsewhere. Saying that we spent a night in Galveston which is the go-to beach location from Houston. Don't forget there are a lot of oil rigs / industry in the Gulf.
But in our week we fitted in Lockhart (BBQ), Austin, Fort Worth (Stockyards & live rodeo festival), Dallas (JFK/Dealey Plaza), NASA, taste of Louisiana (Lake Charles, bayous, gator trail) and Galveston.
We've been fortunate to visit the US a few times but this really had a feel of getting under the skin, especially when we ventured outside of some of tourist spots. Although going in January also helped keep tourist numbers down. And the pies, oh the pies!!

its still available or was this morning friends got it for £235 as booked hotel, its about £278 on Singapore airlines

This a a good deal. KL isn't the greatest SE Asian city....but is a fantastic hub for cheap onward travel to other destinations like Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, Burma, Vietnam and even Australia....using very cheap but efficient airlines like air asia.

So voted hot....as they are both good airlines and they are direct flights.

I bought a priority pass recently for airport lounges. It's like £149 per year with 15 free visits if I recall correctly. You get snacks, food, showering facilities, alcohol, can charge your phone, etc. Pretty good if you travel often.

Do to travel issues in Burma (part of the charm), i would not recommend it if you are on a short time scale. It all depends on what you are after tbh...

I love the Philippines, but I would stay away from Manila - it's a great city, but you need to know the city or know someone who knows it to find out all the hidden spots... If do go, let me know and i will tell you where to go..

If you were doing island hopping / city holiday (based upon flight costs), i would do something like:

Hong Kong for a 3 nights, maybe pop over to Macau too...
Fly to Manila and then connect to Boracay for 3 or 4 nights (it has far too many tourists, but a lot of my friends still love it).
From Boracay, i would fly to Cebu and travel down to Oslob and go swimming with whale sharks 2 nights (only 2 nights to relax from travelling too).
Travel by boat to Bohol and spend 3 nights - could also go to siquijor on the way for a couple of nights...
From Bohol travel to Manila to fly home from or even back to Hong Kong for a night.

That's not a bad route... this one is easy enough to do, not too expensive, not too long on a bus etc... All depends how adventurous you are...

Thanks.

What was great about Burma



I loved the feeling i got in Burma, you could tell things are starting to change, but things were still Asian. I am lucky and have travelled to over 100 countries including most of South-East Asia, never had this feeling before. They have cars with steering wheel on the right hand side, but drove on the left (cars from Japan, but driving the same side as the europeans) - highly dangerous.

With my domestic flights they just cancel or change the times when they wanted, i woke up at 2am - checked my emails as you do and i found out at 1am they emailed to say my flight had changed from 4pm to 6am. When i got the flight it must have been some big shot as lots of staff lined up to take photo's with him... One of my boarding passes was made from cardboard!

Beer is cheap, weather is good... Not been to the beach yet...

Loved the mix of indian in the culture...

Just lots of things, i could not put my finger on it.... 100% will go back.

To those concerned about legroom in economy, it's worthwhile checking out sites like seatguru.com to check legroom stats. I flew LHR to SYD earlier this year with Etihad, who were alright.

But the other flights were fine - as soon as the kids were old enough to be engrossed by the TV screens we just let them vegetate for 24 hours. We've flown Singapore, Emirates, BA and Etihad and honestly there's not much to choose between them IMO. Most recent was Etihad (last month), the entertainment system on the A380 was superb by economy class standards (and not much worse on the other legs). It's slightly better to break the flight in Dubai / Abu Dhabi than Singapore because it makes for two more equal halves of the journey, changing at Singapore on the way back and realising you've still got 3/4 of the flight time to go was a bit depressing.Don't forget to get an e-Visa (free, apply online) before you leave, the airline doesn't usually remind you.

There are flights as low as £375 on there if you're flexible on where you want to land and when you want to goIf the plan is long term travel or backpacking then sometimes it's worth checking out prices from Dublin, Paris or Amsterdam as well and including a trip to those locations as part of your journey.Back in 2014 I went to Sydney via Amsterdam and Taipei which as well as making the journey cheaper than a single stop in say Abu Dhabi gave me a few days of travel in places I hadn't yet been.



I'm packing a bike...so multiple carriers/airports is out. China Southern don't charge extra for carrying bikes - so I guess £375 with no excess charges is worth the money. Flight duration isn't too bad either.

I just wish the international airfare pricing matched the European system - where one way flights are the same price as the outbound flights on a return airfare.

We are still going on our £83 tickets Turkish airline tickets. Tickets are now £197 with Momondo and £201 on Skyscanner. Looking forward to it still and hope there will be no more bombs. We'll be careful anyway and keep away from groups of tourists!. This really deserves to be a hot deal and I much appreciate this posting:)

Didnt go with Momondo but got 4 flights, via Skyscanner, with good flight times, meals and 23kg baggage each with Turkish Airlines at £83 each and we are staying at a great hotel for 5 days at a great price having subscribed to 'secret deals' with hotel.com.
