PI in August? How expensive are the airline tickets? My buddy just dropped $1800 for his wife to go home and see her family.

Yes tickets have increased since reopening to tourists in Feb. If you shop dates, airlines, are flexible and book well in advance... currently ~$1,000 roundtrip.

Biggest factor on prices is none of the low cost airlines out of China have resumed flights. Their competition kept fares low. Now add increased fuel costs on top of that. Back in 2019 I was flying roundtrip for under $500.

But what you spend on airfare you can save on accomodations and food. My most recent stay was here:

Directly on the water, private fan hut (no a/c) and after taxes/fees was $12 USD per night.

Not really, I tend to make final plans at the last minute or on the fly. Except for plane tickets which I book as far in advance as possible.

So tell me again, are you retired or work for yourself? I forget, I still work but from home and have some flexibility. How many trips do you do a year?

Recently retired this year. But the transition was easy as I've been practicing for retirement for the past 7 years. LOL

Not including Covid years, typically 4-5 trips per year. Usually 3-4 weeks duration. A couple rides in Thailand and Vietnam also. This year starts Europe rides as I just bought a Tenere in Germany.
