One of the world's most exciting cities, Hong Kong has captivated visitors since its humble origins as a port in the 19th century. With an incredible skyline, wonderful Chinese food and beautiful topography, Hong Kong is one of the most popular cities in Asia. But travelling to the former British colony can be expensive. So let's take a look at some of the cheapest bargain flights to Hong Kong currently on sale.
With the likes of Oasis and Air Asia no longer offering budget flights from the UK to Hong Kong, it is slightly more difficult to source the cheapest deals. However, there are still some budget flights remaining. If you are prepared to travel indirect with a short stopover in Doha, then Qatar Airways can take you from Gatwick to Hong Kong for only £326, possibly the cheapest deal on the internet. This flight can be booked through 1st Class Travel. Alternatively Flight Centre can book a return flight from Heathrow via Zurich on Swiss Airlines for only £459 for travel between April and September 2011.
For direct flights Air New Zealand offer competitive rates for return flights from Heathrow to Chek Lap Kok. Their rates start at £619 for peak summer flights without the hassle of a connection. Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong's national carrier and Skytrax's International Airline of the Year 2009, can also offer inexpensive direct flights from Heathrow. Flying with this airline will set you back £634 including all taxes and fees for flights year round.
