We all know the riots in Bangkok. A lot of us who had plans to visit the Thai capital have either canceled their trip, or are still praying that things turn for the better soon. Things seem to be going back to normal in BKK, and to help boost Thailand’s tourism, which was hit hard by the riots, Air Asia is giving out 10,000 free seats to Bangkok from ASEAN countries and China.
The sale started at midnight, and unlike other Air Asia sales wherein the site is painfully slow the first few hours of the sale, the servers earlier were surprisingly fast. Seems like people are still hesitant to go to Bangkok.
Wei and I were talking about the sale, and he told me about this awesome site that lets you easily find the lowest fare available on Airasia.com: www.flyous.com. The tool is very easy to use too — just select your origin and destination from the drop down box, and select whether it’s for a round trip or one-way flight. The site will go through all of Air Asia’s available flights for those destinations. Pretty nifty eh? No need to go through each date to find a zero fare! Now I wonder, do they also get bogged down when Air Asia has their massive sale?
