Best time to find China holiday deals
April-June (spring) and September-October (autumn) are the best times to make the trip to China. This is because summers can get hot and smoggy while winters can be unbearably cold.
Depending on where in China you're headed, you can snap up flights for as little as $500 return on a full service airline. We've outlined below some benchmarks from major Australian cities into popular China ones.
Best time to book flights
How far in advance should you book for great deals? From major cities like Sydney and Melbourne, getting your flights booked to Beijing 5 weeks in advance is the sweet spot. Flights to Shanghai are a little less black and white with the ideal booking period being 2-6 weeks in advance.
Where is it? China sits on the far east of the Asian mainland, between Russia and the sea separating it from Japan.
How do I get there? Direct flights are available to various cities in China from Australia's main cities. While flights often go on sale, you can also bag a bargain with connecting flights through Singapore with Scoot or Kuala Lumpur with AirAsia. Read more...
