It's time to tick that Great Wall off your bucket list with 5-star flights for cheap.

China has a long history spanning over 4,000 years and a rich culture just begging to be explored. Whether you want to hike along an ancient trade route, like the Silk Road, or just get up close to a cuddly panda, now's a great time to start packing your bags.

Especially now that Singapore Airlines has dropped this China sale into our laps.

With it, you can fly from Perth to Beijing or Shanghai for $524 return between 14 August and 25 September.

You can also fly to Beijing or Shanghai from Melbourne for $529 return during April to June or from Sydney for $544 during March to May. Flights are also available for under $600 return from Brisbane or Adelaide on select dates between 3 March and 9 December 2018.

Singapore Airlines is a full-service carrier, so checked baggage and in-flight meals are included in these fares so you won't have to worry about overspending beyond your budget. These flights also include a layover in Singapore which is one of our favourite airports to stopover in, if we have to stop anywhere.

How good are these fares?

We’ve seen some sale fares for as low as $297 return with budget airline AirAsia, but compared to other full-service airlines, these fares are on par with recent sales from Singapore Airlines and Qantas.

The travel dates allow you to travel over the best time to visit China. We find that travel between April and June and September to October allows you to avoid the major school holiday breaks around the world and enjoy cool, pleasant temperatures in most major cities in China.

Flights are on sale until sold out and can be booked now through I Want That Flight.
