Dublin Shanghai €240 Return

http://www.secretflying.com/posts/eu...240-roundtrip/

Availability from April to May 2018

The SAS website conveniently allows you to view prices for the whole month so there is no need for a list of example dates from us.
However, do NOT purchase on the SAS website. Simply find the cheap dates, then purchase on the Momondo GO TO DEAL button below.
Momondo OTAs price these flights cheaper.

I'd imagine he means it's a pain because it's not an eVisa.

Do you have to queue up at the embassy for a visa? Hardly

Yes visa application in person only.
You do need a full itinerary at that time too. Flights in and out and all stay accounted for with booked accommodation.

you can of course book accommodation and cancel.

I went to China in 2005 and had to send the passport to London to get the visa. Just needed a rough itinerary and proof of 1st few night accommodation.

You also need to decide if you need a single entry or multiple entry visa. For example if you go to Hong Kong you need a new visa to get back into main land China.

Had a look last night, and in the Region of €370. Still not bad value, but forever ruined by the €280 flight via LHR from Shannon to Hong Kong.
