The best time to fly to Asia is during July, but great deals can be found at other times. August tends to be the warmest period in Asia so if you are looking for sun or warmer climates then look to fly around this time. September is the wettest if you need to factor this in to your plans.

Where are the most popular flight destinations in Asia?

Popular flight destinations in Asia include Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea and China.

Ancient kingdoms, glittering skyscrapers and pristine beaches: these are just a few attributes that make up the world’s largest continent, Asia. With a plethora of diverse countries comprising it, Asia can be overwhelming to many Western travellers, yet intriguing to most.

Flights to Asia will land you in one of an incredibly varied range of countries. Asia’s largest country – also the largest in the world – is Russia. Plagued with a turbulent past of wars and revolutions this ex-communist empire has rebounded as one of the most fascinating destinations for a tourist. Russia’s neighbour, China, is another vast country with bustling cities and ancient villages that would take years to fully explore.

Although much smaller in scale than China, the Southeast Asian country, India, is a kaleidoscope of different cultures with more than 1,652 languages spoken and around eight major religions. When visiting India it’s easy to fall in love with its people; their joie de vivre is infectious. Thailand is a traveller’s favourite, drawing seven million visitors each year, keen to see its idyllic beaches, ancient ruins, high-end resorts and the bustling metropolis Bangkok.

With so much to see in Asia, tourists will find a plethora of flights to Asia destinations that suit any traveller’s needs.

Asia climate

India and Thailand have their monsoons, Japan, its typhoons and Russia turns into a winter wonderland covered in snow blankets. The weather in Asia does differ considerably and depending on which country you’re visiting you’ll always need to check before booking your trip. 

When is the best time to fly to Asia?

Generally speaking, the best months to visit India and Sri Lanka are from November to March. Try to avoid visiting during the monsoon season; anywhere from May to September.

Japan is beautiful between the months of March and May when cherry blossoms bloom, and although the weather is pleasant at the end of August and September it is their typhoon season. On the other hand, the Philippines, another Asian island, is lovely during the same months as Japan – March to May – but from June to October is the wet monsoon season.

The country that experiences the most extreme weather conditions is Russia; it gets bitterly cold in winter – November to early April – and unbearably hot in July and August. While the UAE, on the other hand, doesn’t really have different seasons: it’s generally warm throughout the year, with the exception of August when the heat can reach the high nineties.

Getting around Asia

Transportation throughout Asia ranges from efficient and comfortable to chaotic and frustrating. Each country has a preferred form of transportation and some towns or cities within that country could have a different preference.

Given the vastness of the larger countries – Russia and China, getting around is best done by plane. In both countries buses and trains are the cheapest and easiest ways to commute long-distance.

India has an extensive airline network for domestic travel. But while flying might be an easier option, the best way to get a feel for the country and its people is to travel by rail at least once. If that sounds too adventurous then the slightly more expensive option is to hire a car and driver. This is also a good idea when travelling around other countries in Asia including Sri Lanka and the Philippines.

How long is the flight to Asia take?

Although Hong Kong itself is located on this vast continent, the length of flights to Asia depends on your destination country. Most flights to Asia will depart from Hong Kong International Airport (HKG). To fly to Narita International Airport (NRT) in Tokyo, Japan, one of Asia's top destinations in the east, will take 4h-5h with a direct flight. Flying south to the island paradise of Bali, Indonesia, will take around 12h with at least one changeover, arriving at I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS). If you're heading towards the Himalayas, flights with one or more stopovers can take anywhere from around 23h to upwards of 30h to reach Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM) in Kathmandu, Nepal. Compare flights to Asia on Cheapflights to find the best Asia airfare. Keep in mind that cheap flights to Asia may involve several connecting flights and/or longer wait times between them.

What are some of the best ways to travel around Asia?

After flying to Asia, the best way to travel around the continent will depend on the locations you are travelling between. Flying is the recommended choice for long distances and across the water, especially if you can find good Asia flight deals. If you are travelling within southeast Asia, buses are highly recommended, as they are cheap, convenient and have a wide network of routes. Trains, meanwhile, are a good option in regions with solid rail infrastructure and high-speed trains, like China and Japan. However, renting a car is usually advised against for most parts of Asia, due to often complex restrictions, higher costs, and busy and chaotic traffic conditions.

What will I need to do before my flight to Asia?

To avail of the most convenient and cheap flights to Asia, make sure to book flights to Asia early. You will require a visa to visit certain countries, such as Myanmar, Vietnam, and China, each with differing policies, so make sure to do your research. When it comes to money, inform your bank of your destinations, so your cards continue working abroad. Try to obtain some cash in your destination's local currency before you leave. If  you're travelling to several destinations, especially across Southeast Asia, carrying some US dollars can be helpful, as they are used alongside the national currency in countries including Myanmar and Cambodia.

What are some things to do in Asia?

After you have booked your flights to Asia, the things to do here are just as numerous and diverse as the continent itself. In Bali, soak up the sun on fine white sand before diving the coral reefs or a WWII shipwreck. In Nepal, admire the world's tallest mountains and observe greater one-horned rhinos, Bengal tigers, and Asian elephants in Chitwan National Park. The fast-paced, technological city of Tokyo, brimming with pop culture, is a world apart; here, you can also admire one of the most stunning displays of cherry blossoms from late March to late April.

What is good to know if travelling to Asia?

  • It can be bewildering planning a trip to Russia’s gargantuan metropolis – Moscow. Many tourists leave with the feeling they had seen less than they’d hoped to, but three things not to be missed are visiting the Kremlin, strolling around Red Square and a night at the Bolshoi Theater.
  • In China visit Shanghai’s Jade Buddha Temple which was built between 1911 and 1918. The seated Buddha is encrusted with jewels and weighs 1000kg. Don’t miss the Hong Kong Museum of History which boasts an expansive collection of 6,000 years of the territory’s cultural heritage and history.
  • Drop by the Chatuchak Weekend Market in Bangkok and test your bargaining skills at any of the 9,000 stalls selling everything from antiques to flowers. Then head to the Jim Thompson House, a traditional Thai house that was once home to the most famous expat in Thailand: the American adventurer and entrepreneur who came to Bangkok during World War II as a US spy.
  • Elephanta Island, a short boat-ride from Mumbai, is home to the holy rock-cut temples dating back to 450 AD. Although these temples suffered major Portuguese vandalism they remain virtually untouched.  
  • A trip to the UAE wouldn’t be complete without a visit to a ‘souk’. If you have to choose just one, the Deira’s Gold Souq is the place to pick up Indian and Arabian jewellery.
  • Half-Asian and half-European, Turkey’s unique mix contributes to its most illustrious landmark, the Haghia Sophia. This museum was once a Byzantine cathedral which was turned into a mosque until 1935.
  • While visiting Manila, the capital of the Philippines, head to Intramuros, the ancient walled city built by the Spaniards in the 16th century.
  • In Sri Lanka take a trip to the hillside city of Kandy where you’ll find the sacred tooth of Buddha in Dalada Maligawa.
  • After all that sightseeing in Kyoto relax in a hot spring resort, “Kurama Onsen”, one of the few bath houses close to the city.
