Tell your family you’re ditching Thanksgiving dinner.
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.
