Grand Palace, Bangkok (Thailand)
Golden Buddha Temple (Wat Trimitr)
Bangkok is a chaotic city with a hectic day and night, supercontaminada of smoke, noise and smells of the many food stalls are all over the streets with cheap price and acceptable hygiene . My wife move from Singapore here, he found it depressing: dilapidated houses, congested traffic, dirt in the streets, other social forms .. . instead I only saw it differently, a different lifestyle than the European, but I saw poverty and then struck me as did India, no begging, even our initiative was to give alms to a ragged boy, without his request , but that's very much appreciated .

Get your ticket to Singapore or Bangkok return to the USA. there are absolutely great deals for $600-800 with people like Cathay and Singapore Air and Thai.
Then buy your tickets for inter-Asia and Africa from there. I have personally done this and saved perhaps 40percent off the US originating price.
BKK and Singapore are excellent hubs for Africa.
I have used the following... different agents.
You can usually get tickets for the next day (and spend a day or two in BKK checking out temples while you wait).
Another agency I have seen operating in BKK for years is
/> Chekc out an agent in Singapore too. Go to the nicest hotel in town and ask their concierge for a recommendation of an agent. I think they have similarly priced flights.
