Today it is much more easy to travel around the world because of the budget airline.

Newbie here to look for your sharing info especially who are love to travel among Aisa.
Anybody know how to make a decision by airline company when travelling with budget airline?
Lowest Price? Service Level? Security issue?

Some more idea? (hopefully can make a updated List for Best flyer over here so that the new comer who is like me can full use of this bulletin)

For Example:
(Destination) (Airline to choise) (Price$) (Period)
1. SG-HK

Problem with flying to place like HK is not the cost of air ticket, but the cost of the hotels there. Cheapest I found already cost $100 a night; add the cost of airport transfer, quite x. Best to find a package deal unless you know of a good & cheap place to stay.

prices will always change due to promotions or demand so i don't think the list will be accurate. just update when we know of new promotions? so far i only took valuair to jarkata in oct 05 and find it an alright experience, esp the flight is so short.

my cousin take tiger to ching mai twice a year and he got no complains also.

i wun dare to take those indonesian budget air again though. took adam and lion air for domestic flights...the seat pockets for emergency actions were missing and some of the seats are badly damaged. lousy safety record too. rather not gamble with my life.

agree..never gamble with our life.but if you learn about earoplane engines,u will be scared that many of them suffer super degradation after few thousands flying time..really worry because we are in the air..

I find it much more economical to get an airfare + hotel package from one of the online consolidators like www.zuji.com.sg

Their Hong Kong packages with 2 night hotel stay start from $500 upwards. And the great thing is you can fly with a full service airline like Singapore Airlines or Cathay Pacific. You don't have to subject yourself to flying on budget carriers.

Think this should be discussed in the Kopitiam section instead.

Anyway, I agree with bro Terence that I find it much more economical to get an airfare + hotel package from one of the online consolidators or travel agencies.

My trip last year was staying in mongkok for $37 per night.
And also this thread i feel should be in kopitiam.
Erm, can share the hotel name & address? I can't seem to find anything cheaper than almost $80 a room. Unless yr figures are for twin sharing or something like that. Also which time of the year did you go?

Try http://www.hostelworld.com I got my beds with private rest room for about S$60/night/room in Mongkok. Small but clean and safe. You may fly to Macau and back from Shenzhen. So far I have been to 5 destinations with Tiger. Service is okay. Mostly on time.
