Blog reader Al emailed me about a Cebu Pacific airfare sale with round trip prices between Manila and Sydney for under $200 round trip. The actual airfare is as low as 2,500 PHP one way ($53.30 USD). I did a quick check and found that fare from Manila to Sydney. The return fare looked about 50% higher for dates I checked.
Here are the details I was able to figure out. (I am catching a bus in 30 minutes, so I don’t have time to search for 2,500 PHP fare dates from Sydney to Manila.)
The lowest price is without a checked bag. One checked bag is about $25 each way and a meal is $10 more.

Flights from LAX to Manila are currently priced around $585 to $615 flying China Eastern or China Southern Airlines. That makes a total airfare at around $800 round trip to Sydney, Australia from California.
