Why It's a Deal In a recent Kayak search, we found a round-trip flight to Beijing for $806 in mid-November (Air Canada). Add to that $239.27 per person with taxes for three nights at the Beijing Huabin International Hotel and another $234.54 per person with taxes for three nights at the Shanghai Crowne Plaza, and you'd be paying a total of $1,279.81 if you booked the components of this package independently. For $293.81 less, this package covers the airfare and accommodations, plus intra-China transportation and transfers, 10 meals, all tours with an English-speaking guide, and all taxes and fees.

More Add an optional extension to Suzhou, (the Venice of the East) and the water village of Tongli, from $30.
