so how much did you all pay for plane tickets to china? who did you buy the tickets through? and how early did you buy them?

also, i'm annoyed that some travel websites won't let me buy a one-way ticket there.

Really? Where did you buy the ticket?
I just bought one, on the website www.ctrip.com (the english website is english.ctrip.com). I ordered it a week early. It's one-way. Tomorrow i'll go to the airplane and get it directly from a counter there. i paid by credit card.

Helen,

This should not be a problem which causes you any frustration !!

There are many agents who advertise here at TCG, who offer good rates (see right side banners). Also, you can double check most airfares at a discount site such as Orbitz.com
I have found that airfare from the USA to China is very reasonable. However, if you book very close to your departure date, it may cost more than if you had booked 15 to 30 days in advance.

The only issue with a one-way ticket, is maybe some extra security (passenger profile) at the airport, for a person who either pays cash for the ticket and/or only purchases a one-way ticket. Most Americans traveling to China, do not purchase one-way tickets unless they have long-term residence in China !!

When are you planning on going and to what city/region ?? Try to get a non-stop flight to China if you can. It is less stressful the first time, to not have to change planes and or airlines in another foreign city. Major cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and San Francisco, all have direct flights available to either Guangzhou in the south, or Shanghai, or Beijing in the north, depending on which airport and airline you use.

Have a great trip !!! :) :)
