Visit China's biggest city during the liveliest time of the year.

Shanghai is China's biggest city, and it’s one that can rival New York and London in terms of modernity and excitement.

If you're after a great destination on a budget, then Flight Centre has got you covered with flights as low as $417 return flying with Qantas.

The lowest fares are from Perth to Shanghai but you can also find flights from Melbourne or Gold Coast to Shanghai from $482, from Sydney for $487 and from Brisbane for $599.

Travel dates are for October to November and February to March 2019.

The best time to visit Shanghai is in October and November so aim for those earlier dates if you can. Autumn season boasts a slew of fun, cultural festivals comfortable temperatures and sees a drop in crowds and rain after the busy summer season.

To book, head to Flight Centre to scoop these deals up.

These fares are not part of a particular promotion so are available only until sold out.

How good are these fares?

Prices are certainly lower than what we usually see, with Qantas fares to Shanghai starting at $558 return for worse dates.

Compared to your cheapest options, as brought up by Skyscanner, your cheapest options out of Perth start from $361 return. These however are on a budget airline (AirAsia) and include a long layover in Kuala Lumpur, turning an otherwise 16 hour flight into a 22 hour one.
