Tips on Finding Cheap Flights to Shenzhen

1. Shenzhen is bordering Hong Kong. International passengers who want to go to Shenzhen can compare the costs of flights to these two cities and choose the cheaper one. However, you may need to pay attention to the visa policy in advance.

2. It is more likely to get special discount if you book air tickets 1-3 months in advance.

3. If you see the air tickets with the same departure time but sold at different prices, you can buy the cheaper one. They are actually on the same plane, the price difference is caused by the different pricing strategies of different airlines.

4. Passengers with fixed dates of departure and return can book round-trip tickets, because round-trip tickets usually enjoy greater discounts than one-way tickets.

Hi, first you need to apply for a China visa in the Chinese Embassy and then book a flight from Dublin to Shenzhen. It seems there is no direct flight between the two cities and you may need to transfer in London or Brussels, which depends on your flight and air company.

The cheapest way should be hard sleeper on overnight ride, but this takes a long time, over 30 hours. So maybe it is better to check if discount flight ticket available.
