If you aren’t able to make it to China for the New Year celebration, consider booking a flight between February to May. Air Canada and five-star airline Hainan have cut their original ticket prices in half for flights to Beijing and Shanghai during these months; flights from select cities in the United States and Canada start at $450.
The forbidden capital city of Beijing is the cultural center of the country. Climb the Great Wall, explore the Beijing Zoo, or see the Temple of Heaven. Shanghai is often called, The Paris of the East and retains a European feel in some parts of the city, boasting modern and exciting cuisine and high-end shopping.
Book your flight directly through the airline, or through Momondo to save between $20 and $40 and get the absolute best fare.
