I am from Singapore. What is cheapest holiday trip I can take that I can see snow?

(I understand that snowfall is unpredictable and some good luck is required.)

Cheapest flights to destinations which have snow would be:

  • Tiger Airways to Taipei, Taiwan, and then onwards from there.
  • Tiger Airways Chennai or Bangalore in India, and then a train up to Himalayas or Indigo to New Delhi (this would be closer) and then onwards to the Himalayas.
  • AirAsia X to Korea / Japan. These are typically quite expensive compared to the above options.

I would suggest:-

  • Wait for snowfall in the Australia ski-fields
  • Look for an AirAsiaX flight from Singapore to Sydney (via KL) (250 SGD)
  • Catch a train from Sydney to Canberra (55 SGB)
  • Catch a bus from Canberra to Jyndabyne (via Cooma?)
  • Catch the ski-tube up to Mount Perisher
  • Sleep in a tent at the caravan park
  • I would have assumed it'd be cheaper to go to Taiwan, South Korea or Japan. Prices there are a bit cheaper there than they are in oz, too! (I can't really blame the resort operators though - too much demand, too little supply!)

  • @Andrew Grimm: Might be, I haven't costed them all but it's a suggestion. Flight costs are likely to dominate so it probably comes down to that especially if you just want to see snow so you do not need a lift ticket or on-snow accom.

Go to the Himalayas. Then, you don't need good luck. What is extra -- you get to see really lofty mountains. There are several destinations in Nepal (e.g., Kathmandu), Bhutan and India (e.g., Sikkim, Darjeeling, Ladakh and Dharmshala).

  • 1. In India North Sikkim is best option in Feb/March, 2. Manali is another option in November/December Commented Feb 9, 2016 at 12:23
