4 ways to find cheap flights to China

China can be an expensive destination to reach, but with the proper research and strategy, you should be able to find a flight that fits in your budget. Here are some tips on how to get to the Far East for cheap:

  • Travel rewards credit cards. If you’re spending a lot on plastic, why not use a travel rewards credit card. You’ll find many cards offer points just for signing up and spending a certain amount within a period of time.
  • Avoid peak travel season. A sure way to save a few bucks would be to plan your trip between the months of January and February when there aren’t as many tourists visiting. You may even see discounted rates for flying on Tuesday or Wednesday when the airlines aren’t as busy.
  • Check discount travel websites. Sites like Orbitz, CheapOair and Kayak typically offer flights for low rates and can even give you a general idea of what you should be spending if you plan on looking elsewhere.
  • Low-cost airlines. China has a set of low-cost airlines that aren’t going to be listed on discount travel websites. Most websites won’t be in English, but Spring Airlines and West Air are. You might sacrifice some legroom, but you’ll surely see a discounted rate.

What to consider when booking accommodations in China

Cities in China are packed to the brim with people and rather large. Whether you decide to stay in Shanghai, Beijing or another city, you should try and book accommodations downtown where catching a taxi and riding the subway will be easily accessible.

In cheaper hotels and hostels, you’ll find that most of the employees speak Chinese. So unless you’re traveling with someone who is fluent in the language, your best bet is to consider an international hostel or a hotel with at least a three star rating to ensure you’ll be able to communicate with the staff.

If you’re traveling for work or will be planning your days as you go, you’ll likely rely on internet — so make sure you check before you book. It’s also important to know that a VPN will be required to access websites like Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
