Tell your family you’re ditching Thanksgiving dinner.

October 10, 2016

Don't have enticing Turkey Day plans? Spend Thanksgiving in Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, or the Philippines instead.

The Airfare Spot found on Monday a China Eastern Airlines’ airfare sale to these countries across Southeast Asia—selling tickets to all for less than $500 round-trip.

All flights depart from New York City’s John F. Kennedy Airport between Sunday and Wednesday throughout the month of November, and include a brief stopover in Shanghai.

Tickets are selling quickly, but it’s still possible to score $470 round-trip flights to Manila, the capital city of the Philippines. Other deals include a $489 return ticket to Ho Chi Minh City, and a $490 fare to the frenetic city of Bangkok (for a more relaxing experience, head to the GranMonte Asoke Valley vineyard in the Saraburi province, or follow Bangkok insiders to Maggie Choo’s for high-brow cabaret).

If you’re thinking of leaving the country in November and never coming back, consider this $487 ticket to Singapore—the absolute best place on Earth for expats.

Because we’re in favor of turning your four-day, Thanksgiving weekend into a mini vacation, we think this flight deal is the only excuse you need to ditch the dishes and head to Asia for a spontaneous getaway.
