Edmonton to 10 different places in China - $598 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Mount Siguniang in Sichuan province

Air China has dropped the price of some of their late May and June flights from Edmonton to Wuhan and Chengdu, China down to $589 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

This is just kind of an interesting one I felt like posting purely because of the unusually low price. I can't imagine there are really too many out there that would want, or be able to take a relatively last minute trip to Chengdu or Wuhan.

Update: There are now dates available in September, October, and November 2017, so there's time to get a visa.

The flights have 2 stops each way, in Vancouver and Beijing, China.

Of the two destinations, Chengdu definitely sounds more interesting. Chengdu is the capital of the Sichuan province (as in Sichuan or Szechuan cuisine). It's a laid back city, often considered one of the most liveable of China's mega-cities. There's also some pretty amazing mountains about an hour west towards the Tibetan Plateau (pictured above).

Update: There are actually some more destinations in China (10 of them in fact!) that work with the dates below. I've added the available destinations to the instructions below.

Here's a map of China's airports, if you would like to see where all of these places are located...
