Cheapest way to the UK from Asia? China/Malaysia?

Travel Forums Europe Cheapest way to the UK from Asia? China/Malaysia?

I know I can buy tickets to the UK for 5,000 RMB, without those MYSTERIOUS and illogical hidden charges.
for 5,000 to 6,000 thats alraedy with return airfare.

well lets just say, I am flying Summer 09, I just checked air asia, but that would mean I'd still have to go to KL.

Can I take the flight from China, HK, or Macau? I need the cheapest possible way.

I am choosing the UK for my 1st and could be my last European expedition, for two reasons:

1. I think it would be cheaper than flying to any countries in the continent.

2. It would be easier to get the tourist Visa.

I know I sound so stupid right now. But I am just too excited to care about sounding moronic.

Well, if I pick Germany, for instance, I would need to have a German national to serve as a "SPONSOR" or whatever they call the person who can guarantee that I am absolutely not interested in cleaning one of David Hasselhoff's apartment in Berlin. What if I don't know anybody? I just want to do it by myself. I am not going to visit relatives or friends.

Since Poland is now a member of the EU, does that make it harder to get a tourist Visa to Poland.

I'm so naive about European tourist Visas. I just know its hell difficult for people with my passport to visit the US.

I fly to HK from UK quite regularly and i have always paid around £350 (3500 RMB). The cheapest i got was £304 (3004 RMB). This time I am paying £380 (3800 RMB). I normally fly from Manchester in the UK although I have flown from London with the now long gone Oasis Hong Kong Airlines. Air France was my cheapest at 3004 RMB. This time I am flying with Finnair. These prices include all taxes etc and are returns. HK is by far the cheapest SE Asian and its neighbours destination from the UK.

wow that great news... Its my 1st post on this section and I am not selling anything.

It makes sense, coz my German friend said 5,000 RMB is enough to go to Germany.
