14 Stunning Destinations on Air Asia’s Route Map (Countries A-I)

“Seat sale” — ah, the two sweetest words in the universe for those of us whose pockets can’t quite keep up with our travel dreams. Sometimes, though, it seems like our dream destinations never go on sale when we want them to (hello, Batanes) or the discounted prices are still too steep (*sob* Paris).

Well, maybe we should change our strategy! Instead of waiting for our bucket list destinations to go on sale, maybe we should look at the destinations on sale and add them to our bucket list.

Air Asia seat sale? Here are some of the gorgeous sights and destinations you should be looking at:

  • Nice! There’s a blog I follow by a man whose family seems to travel pretty locally to where they are based in the Midwest US and honestly they find interesting, quirky little sights to see & are getting to know their backyard fully, it’s not a bad idea to keep our eyes open to what we can afford that’s right here OR as you said, be open towards what may not be our first choice but is worthy of the travel bucket list. I almost feel that anyplace we can get to safely is worth exploring, there’s only so much we can tell by brochures, websites, other traveler’s accounts, we gotta get out and see what we can for ourselves.

      • I went to Salt Lake City Utah about 6-7 years ago and spend a day in nearby Park City and absolutely loved it. I knew nothing about it except it was a mountain town where the Sundance Film Festival is held each year, I still think about it and hope to return, I should add going back to my bucket list. It was just breathtaking yet cozy and I loved every minute there. Thanks for asking, brought up nice memories=)

  • Awesome round up, and such a great idea for a post! It’s so easy for people to quickly dismiss Air Asia, but they do offer great destinations at fantastic prices! I actually didn’t realise they flew to a few of these cities, so I’m a little more excited now!

    • Hi Jess! They have a pretty good selection of destinations, flying out of Kuala Lumpur. I like it because I can fly from Cebu (my hometown) to KL and from there to all these other destinations, instead of having to pass by Manila. Have you flown Air Asia before?

      • Ohh that’s convenient for you! Yeah KL is a great gateway for those of us travelling from Melbourne too.. I actually flew with Air Asia to Vietnam in July, no complaints at all! If you understand what you’re getting for the price you’re paying, I cant see what people complain about! I’d be more than happy to fly them again – the money I saved on airfares compared to other airlines got me an extra few days away!
