This is my first post! My husband and I are planning our RTW trip starting Oct 08 for a year - very exciting!
First stop is Japan then we need to get to Beijing somehow!
How much can we expect to pay for a flight and where is it best to go from in Japan?
Would a boat be better?
Thanks so much!
I've heard the fligts are quite expensive. On my trip to Asia this fall im going by boat between Japan and China.
The two options I think you have available is -
- Fly from Narita,Tokyo direct to Beijing via Air China(http://www.airchina.com.cn/) or Via Taipei on China Air http://www.china-airlines.com/en/ -
Also checkout http://ticket.9588.com/International/SendInquiry.aspx - its like EBookers so might be easier to find flights
- I think you'll find the main ferry route is Osaka to Shanghai, then you catch a train up to Beijing which is 24 hours. The ferry itself is 2 days
