|I was wondering the same... Wanted to take my gf to see the snow in Harbin, and then I saw flights are like 2000-3000rmb ONE WAY, what??? I don't get it, why it's cheaper to fly to Europe or US, than to Harbin inside China? Doesn't make any sense...|

|Yes I'm aware that Harbin is 'hot', but for that money one can fly to Europe and see the snow there, so it's really nonsense... Luckily I'm beach lover, so I'll go south & cheap ;-)|

|I agree with sasha...u know with 2000 rmb only i can go to Indonesia round trip through hongkong, sasha if u are a beach lover .. next time u should go to Bali or Lombok Island,,,check the beach are beautiful :)|

|Thanks ARDIYANI, I've been to your beautiful country, Bali is true paradise...|
Yea I'm huge beach lover, in summer I'm on HongKong beaches, and in winter I'm always in Hainan, Singapore, Malaysia and Boracay Philippines ;-)
It's still really weird to see those 2000-3000rmb tickets to Harbin, when Sanya (another 'super-hot' destination) can be flown for 400-800 (December-January, I did it both from Shanghai and from Guangzhou is dirt-cheap).
If you really want to see the snow, for that money you can see it in Europe ;-)

China has too large population. In winter, people swarm into Harbin to see snow or go to Hainan to enjoy the beach. The more people come there, the more expensive the air tickets are. Why? The resource is limited. Most people don't go abroad to see the snow as you said.

|Thanks Jimmy, I'm aware of the situation... |
I'm just trying to say - it's absolutely unfair to Chinese people... Even for Sanya (which is hottest destination), in peak season airlines add extra flights handle demand (up to 30 daily from GZ!) so even in Dec/Jan you can find affordable flights (400/800rmb from GZ/SH, I fly every month), but to Harbin they push to 2000-3000rmb (one way!) which is absolute robbery...
I don't care myself since I don't want to go there anyway, just feel unfair for my Chinese friends who are sad because flying to Harbin is reserved for rich people only...
I'm done here, Happy New Year to all, cheers from sunny Boracay island ;-)

It's indeed unfair but we can travel in a smart way. We may not have to fly directly to Harbin. We can fly to Dalian or Shenyang and then use train to Harbin. Then the air tickets shouldn't have been so damn expensive.
