Pay to fly into Malaysia, then pay an extra buck to fly further into Asia.

Budget carrier AirAsia is at it again, this time with its Go Beyond sale, primed to get you exploring past popular Kuala Lumpur and on to other Asian hot spots.

To be fair, BIG Members (which you can sign up to for free) can still score cheap fares to Kuala Lumpur starting at just $188 one-way from Sydney.

But, if you can part with just one gold coin each way, your pool of destinations becomes much wider.

For only $1 more than fares from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur, you can choose from cities such as Phuket, Langkawi, Bali, Penang, Bangkok, Siem Reap, Phnom Penh, Chiang Mai, Vientiane, Jakarta and Ho Chi Minh City. There are 18 destinations to pick from in total.

Travel is for select dates between now and 30 Sep 2019 so you've got the opportunity to escape the wintery cold and explore a brand new Asian destination.

The sale ends soon, on 13 April 2019 to be precise and word of warning, the hottest seats always sell out quick.

Make sure one of them is yours. Head to Skyscanner to find the best fares before it's too late.
