You can fly to Phuket, Thailand, for $400 round-trip from LAX, including all taxes and fees, on China Southern, using the money you save on airfare for a splurge at the island resort in the Andaman Sea.
The fare, subject to availability, is for travel Jan. 17 through May 3. You must stay at least seven nights but may not stay more than three months.
Fares for February departures are higher.
