2. If you are planning to travel around China by air, it is better to avoid the public holidays and peak season. Every year, April to October is the peak season for travelling in China, and the domestic air tickets are mostly sold with a 20% - 40% off discount; from November to next March is the low season, and the discount for domestic air ticket is usually 30% - 60% off. In addition, air tickets are sold at the full price during public holiday most of the time.

3. Tickets for flights departing or arriving in the late night and early morning are usually sold cheaper than the tickets in other period.

4. Passengers with well-planned travel itineraries can buy the round-trip tickets, because the round-trip tickets are more likely to have a higher discount than the single tickets.

usually most airlines allow 20kg as checed luggage and 5kg carry-on luggage. The electronic devices should be arranged as carry-on luggage. Some budget airlines have different policy, you need to contact the airline directly for advice.
