Best Way To Get From HKG To PEK?

Mon Dec 18, 2006 10:03 pm

I'm travelling from the UK to Beijing during 2007. I have researched flights, and it is far cheaper (in some cases at least GBP200 cheaper) to fly to HKG than it is to fly to PEK.

However.. what is the best/cheapest airline that flies between HKG and PEK that you would recommend?

Go look at what Dragonair is offering. Don't know how the prices are now but I believe their service is very good.

With Regards to flights between HKG and PEK, going between these airports one way is the same rpice on either CX, KA or CA. Me personally go with Dragonair, costing about £195, booking on cathaypacific.com . You could however be a bit adventurous a go to SZX and fly with CA, for only £128, but I am not sure about the specfirfics of getting there.

A hotel recommendation for Hong Kong, I stayed in the Majestic Hotel in Nathan Road, Kowloon when I was in Hong Kong in July, excellent place to stay. Only 200m walk from Jordan MTR station.

Anyways, I hope this info helps and I wish you an excellent trip.

With Regards,
Alex.B

It does. Thank you very much.

I can't decide between BA, QR and EK at the moment!
