“Celebrating the arrival of spring and the much-loved “sakura” (cherry tree, which blossoms pink or white) – one of the greatest attractions. Round-trip tickets from Bangkok during the holiday cost about ฿12000,” said Jetradar’s Marketing Manager Wiriya Sinprasertwong.

Hong Kong and Singapore and the most budget-friendly international destinations during Songkran – use Jetradar to find flights starting from ฿4600.

Due to the Russian financial crisis, European routes to Asia during this time are also very affordable. Round-trip flights to London with Transaero now cost only ฿25110. Most extra charges (taxes, fuel, airport services, etc.) are in Russian Roubles, which is why tickets are cheaper than European or even Middle Eastern carriers.
