Internal flights Shanghai to Beijing (return)

Hi, My wife and I are planning a 10 day trip to China in late August. We plan on spending 5 days in Shanghai (shopping) and 4 days in Beijing (sightseeing). We can book internal flight Shanghai - Beijing-Shanghai from Australia for around $400 per person but was wondering if it would be cheaper to use Shanghai travel agent when we arrive. Any help greatly appreciated.

Definitely come here to book.

In addition, I would strongly recommend you to take the comfortable soft sleepers in overnight Z train instead of flying. You'll be saving time and money.

Ellyse is so right. I have been traveling to China for many years and have found that booking in China is consistently much less of booking here in the US and suspect it would be the same booking in Australlia. I returned from China last week and had booked a trip to Yunnan for about two thirds of what the same trip would have been if I booked it here in the US.

I've taken the train from Shanghai to Beijing and it was a lot of fun, much more entertaining than flying.

I used ticket.9588.com and booked etickets from the US about 2 weeks before I left and it was easy to do and great prices.

Hi,

Try Ctrip:

…ctrip.com/supermarket/…SuperFlightSearch.asp

They have flights for as low as 450 rmb (about AUD$75) each way. I've used them, you just need to pick your tickets up at one of the airports. So if you are flying into Pudong from Brisbane, you can arrange to pick them up when you arrive.

Cheers.
