Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.

There’ve been a ton of great deals on airfare to Hong Kong and Singapore on several different airlines over the past few weeks — and today we’ve found some great fares from Houston to Southeast Asia on Singapore Airlines. Discounted tickets are available for flights this fall to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; Phnom Penh in Cambodia; and Manila, Philippines, all for roughly $700.

Here are two deals we found:

Houston (IAH)-Manila (MNL) on Singapore for $699:

Note that the flight is quite long — approximately 30 hours, with layovers in Moscow and Singapore — but you’re getting an amazing deal relative to the usual cost of this itinerary, which tends to range from $1,300 to $2,450.

Houston (IAH)-Manila (MNL) on Singapore for $699.

Houston (IAH)-Ho Chi Minh City (SGN) on Singapore for $699:

Also a long flight with a long layover, but this itinerary usually ranges from $1,280 to $2,600.
