Grand Temple Bangkok

Ultra low fares to Thailand are back!

The lowest fares are with Air China and have long daytime connections in Shanghai in both directions. This can be a great opportunity to get out of the airport and see some of this amazing city with a free transit visa.

If you prefer shorter connections and/or a more highly rated airline, then go for the China Southern flights.

These fares all include a checked bag, so no more extras to add on.
