- ADL's Rating
For travel deals, there are always additional charges to take note of such as the airport taxes. We are always skeptical about such deals and the total price might cost just as much as you booking the trip on your own. For this deal, they are offering you a net price which includes all the fuel and airport taxes!

Do note that rates are subject to changes.
So for one pax, taking the cheapest price it would cost you..
$170.55 divided by 2 = $85.27
Next, let’s do a check with Thai airways for the air ticket. Taking the same traveling date from Mar 16(Friday) – Mar 19(Monday), it would cost you $368.30 per pax including all airport taxes and fuel charge.
Thus should you choose to make the booking on your own and travel by Thai airway, the total cost for the trip to Bangkok would cost you..
$85.27 + $368.30 = $453.57
WHAT ADL SAYS:
Comparing this price of $453.57 to what this deal is offering you of $379, you get to save a substantial amount of $75 in which you can use it for more shopping! Fret not about the hidden charges now. Everything is written clearly in this deal. There are some things to take note of which is the travel period. The travel validity is from 22 Feb to 30 Jun, that’s about 4 months which is sufficient in our opinion. Just take note of the blackout period on 5 Apr & 6 Apr and to make your booking by 15 Mar. Another perk about this deal is that there are no school holiday & peak season surcharge which is pretty worth it, and you can travel over the weekend to visit the Chatuchak market which is only available on weekends.
For $379, what this deal is offering you includes daily buffet breakfast at P2 Boutique Hotel, return air ticket on Thai Airways, Return Transfer: Airport-Hotel-Airport (which usually cost about S$26 to and fro) & complimentary city tour.
Do you think it’s worth it? In our opinion, we would say yes especially if you have been planning for a trip to Bangkok. Firstly, you definitely get to save money by purchasing this deal. And it’s not traveling by budget airlines but via Thai airways which is much more comfortable.
Secondly, the hotel given in this deal is pretty much near to the shopping areas which you will like to visit in Bangkok (Pratunam). It would probably take you about 10-15 minutes to reach Platinum mall (Wholesale fashion mall, a MUST visit for best shopping). Lastly, daily buffet breakfast are included in this deal and there are free wi-fi in the room for those who can’t live without internet for a day! For those who love massage, you can get to enjoy a 2 hours massage in the hotel at only $15 per person!
Bangkok is a place full of shopping, food and massage. For a NETT price of $379, do you think it’s worth it to get this deal? Do share with us your opinions about this.
