I live in Seoul and haven't travelled yet much. Getting to Japan seems cheap enough but Beijing from Seoul or from Japan seems much more expensive. Any ways round this troops?

Cheers is advance!

If time isn't a constraint, you can always take a boat from Incheon to Tianjin or Dalian, then train it to Beijing.

It's only a 90 minute flight.

Watch for the Chinese airlines cheap seats.

Air China (not China Air) and some of the others routinely have cheap seats to Beijing.

Not sure if anybody has mentioned, but probably not given how little expats in the ROK know about travel.

hopper.com

Google flights.

ITA Matrix once you've spent a semester's worth studying the art of cheap travel. The 3x and fuel dumps secret 1337 *ish I shall not share Smile

There's a hint in here. If you have lots of time, and want to travel for really really cheap....

Be well.

For cheap tickets in China: qunar.com

Never use sites like Travelocity, Expedia or CTrip (China). They mark up their fares as they need to make a profit somehow.

This site redirects to www.qua.com and accordingly quotes GMP-PEK with 2 week advance for $164 USD one-way on Air China International Airlines. A check of their website http://www.airchina.com.cn/en/ offers quotes of ¥1,210 CNY (or $188 USD) for one-way fares on the same route with 2 week advance. Provided the Qua booking works, then this seems like a decent deal.

www.skyscanner.com (I thought everybody knows those sites by now?)
just tested, gives me plenty of 180 USD direct flights, roundtrip.
China Southern and Air China
