Get your flights to China from $529 return now.

The calendar New Year might have come and gone but Asia's New Year has only just begun. Commonly referred to as Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year, it marks the first new moon of the year and is a cause for celebration – and Virgin Australia knows it.

In honour of the date, the airline has taken flights to Hong Kong and the China mainland and given them a right ol' chop, starting fares off at $529 return into Hong Kong.

Flights are also available to Beijing, Shanghai and Fuzhou from $699 return, to Chengu from $749, Chongqing, Haikou, Hangzhou, Tianjin and Guiyang from $799 return, to Nanjing from $849 return and Taipei from $899 return.

While you won't be able to travel over Chinese New Year at these prices, you can escape from May until November 2019. That lets you experience autumn, summer or spring in Asia.

This sale ends at midnight 10 February and seats can be booked directly with Virgin Australia here.

How good are these Virgin Australia Lunar New Year fares?

  • Price: Good. Virgin Australia does a good job at getting us to Hong Kong in comfort for cheap and often drops prices at or below $500 return so while these prices aren't anything rare, they are on par with Virgin's typical sale fares.
  • Airline: Great. Virgin Australia is a full-service airline where you can expect all the comforts of checked luggage, in-flight meals and entertainment to be included with your ticket.
  • Frequent Flyer Points: Great. Velocity Frequent Flyers can expect to earn 5 points for every $1 spent on their airfare. That's a minimum of 2,645 points earned from a return flight in this sale.
  • Travel time: Good. Only flights to Hong Kong are direct. All other flights include one or two stopovers.
  • Weather: Great. Choose from spring, autumn or summer to explore China and Hong Kong.
