Flight Deal: Fly To Hong Kong Nonstop For Under $500
By DeAnna Taylor
This deal is almost too good to be true. Cathay Pacific, an affiliate of American Airlines, has reduced its nonstop flights from the west coast to Hong Kong. Routes can be found for under $500.
This deal is valid for travel from late February through early May. You can use Google Flights or Skyscanner to find dates that work best for you. You can find flights to Hong Kong for less within the same date range. However, they will come with layovers. If you want to avoid playing the waiting game, this deal is perfect for you.
Luckily, you don’t need a visa to visit Hong Kong if you have an American passport and plan on staying for less than 90 days. It is not apart of mainland China, so it does not require the same entry and exit stipulations.
Hong Kong is a perfect blend of tech-forward with old school China. While it may seem that the city can be expensive to navigate, you can do Hong Kong on a budget.
Finding the perfect place to stay while in Hong Kong is critical. Hotels are generally expensive around the city. The best bet is to look for an Airbnb first. If you still prefer an actual hotel, The JJ Hotel, is a very nice, inexpensive hotel located in the Wanchai area.
One of the biggest attractions in Hong Kong is the view from the top of Victoria’s Peak. Most websites will suggest taking a tour or using the cable car to get to the top. However, it’s very easy to get to the top on your own and for a fraction of the cost. You can take a bus from the main bus terminal using your Octopus card (a transportation card that can also be used at most fast food places and some markets) that will drive you to the top of the mountain. After a short walk along a very scenic trail, you will find the perfect overlook to snap excellent photos.
Did we mention that it never really gets cold in Hong Kong? So you can visit whenever without having to bundle up.
