A good place to go to buy airline tickets to any major city in China is Ctrip or Elong which are both e-ticketing websites. You can pay online or pay cash on delivery. Really they offer good deals and I have never been cheated.

Ctrip: http://english.ctrip.com/

eLong: http://www.elong.net/

qunar.com is pretty good, although you need to have a Chinese bank account to use I believe.

The website I usually use is www.kayak.com. It aggregates ticket prices from other websites (including ctrip and elong I think), is in english, and has a cool feature where you can do a price comparison for tickets 3 days before and 3 days after your chosen date to get the best price.

I would also have to say c--trip! It might be better to go online and purchase your ticket rather than going to an agency. I've found that you can get it cheaper if you do it yourself. The agencies take a long time also unless there was a set price and you were going as a group I wouldn't recommend using an agency. C-Trip!

  1. 1. Ctrip - English
  2. 2. Elong - English
  3. 3. Qunar - Chinese
  4. 4. Skyscanner - English (can choose currency and for example Beijing to Canada will choose the cheapest city in Canada to fly to without typing a city).
  5. 5. Kayak
  6.

A: Can you come to China for sightseeing and walk the doors of employers?
A:Can you come to China for sightseeing and walk the doors of employers? No, you can't, because you have to secure an Entry visa first and without an employer, it's almost impossible to fulfil that task .Beside that, you could maybe provide a better solution ... beside bashing the website and stating the matters, which are impossible to prove. Looking for a job (or jab .. ) was always very personal experience and I ain't shilling for the website.I described the ways on how I was finding new positions in China.Imagine yourself being stuck in Hong Kong 'cause your previous employer screwed-up yer valid Residence permit ... and then after some 20-days of HK's human congestion, you find new employer/RP sponsor from the Jobs here and after further 30-days of HK, you return to China with fresh RP and new 1-year contract. I had two choices after exiting to HK: either get new position in China or return to EU/home after 3-months HK stay. Applying for the new position from this website, saved me a lot of troubles and monies ... .However, it might doesn't work the same now as it worked in my time, but I wouldn't act any different if I wanted to return to China, i.e. scan new openings and get few good placement agents ... from Jobs here. -- icnif77
