Tips on Finding Cheap Flights to Harbin

1. November to next March is the peak traveling season to Harbin, and there will be very few special offers during this period, so try to avoid flying to Harbin during the time period. If you have to fly this period, fly to neighboring cities like Dalian, Shenyang or even Beijing, and then go to Harbin by high speed train. This kind of combination may save you a lot.

2. The flights operated late at night or early in the morning are normally cheaper than those of other periods.

3. If you have planned your travel itinerary well, buy round-trip tickets. Airlines usually offers higher discount for round-trip tickets.
