expired MEL/SYD Return Moscow, Russia (w' 2x Bangkok Stopovers) via Thai Airways $948 (Feb/Mar/Apr 2018) @ IWTF
Found these great deals to both Russia (Moscow) and Thailand (Bangkok) for dates in February, March and April next year.
You'll need to fiddle around with specific dates, but plenty available during these 3 months.
Heaps to do in Moscow and Bangkok, and here's a great explainer on how to get a Russian VISA, meanwhile no VISA fees for a stay in Thailand.
Hope someone finds this useful!
