Manchester to Bangkok with Emirates via Dubai Adult £675 Child £543.

This fare is by no means the cheapest on the market but it is a group fare which means the seat can be booked with a deposit (£200 non-refundable) and the balance to be paid 8 weeks prior to departure. Paying £200 secures the seat only not the taxes or surcharges these are subject to change anytime (this doesn’t generally happen) but you need to be aware.

Additional Costs

Training fees- these can be expensive upto £10 per session so allow for this.

Bangkok – there are so many camps and its good to try as many as you can.

Koh Samui – most popular is Pinyo but again there are lots.

We will be having fighters compete so allow £30-40 for a ticket to spectate.

Trips – most temples are free and ask for donations but trips to islands for snorkelling or exploring can be expensive between £25-50pp.

Spending money – food and drinks (especially street food and beer) are cheap but you tend to spend more because of this. Tuk tuks can be more expensive than taxis but much more fun. 

You can spend as little as £300 in a fortnight or thousands so you need to set yourself a budget and keep to it so many people go and overspend!!
