Air China
Yet another weekend sale by Air China.

Montreal-Seoul or Singapore for $499 is pretty hot, while deals from Vancouver to 3 cities in China is just warm.

Another warm deal is that you get 8% off on other cities in Asia.

They usually start sales at midnight PT. I've heard of previous cases of purchases getting failed as you try to complete check out. If that happens, you may want to try other web sites like online travel agencies.

Singapore is a really weird and unpleasant place that feels artificial and contrived. I really didn't like it when I was there. Everything is so controlled and artificially clean.
As we all know, the Greater Toronto Area is the center of the universe!

My wife flew last week round trip YVR to ICN with stops in Shanghai and Gonghzou. Each leg of the trip was delayed 1 to 6 hours. Its cheap but don't expect to be there on time.

VISA-FREE TRANSIT
72-hour Transit Visa Exemption for Canadians
Canadian citizens can acquire a 72-hour visa free transit in Beijing and Shanghai airports (and others listed below) only. This does NOT apply to cruise ship passengers. The visa-free travel is only offered to passengers who are transiting China by air on their way to another/third country (from Canada through China to another country; or from another country through China to Canada). You must fly in and out of the same city. You cannot go to any other city. You cannot leave the city in which you landed. You cannot use this to go from Canada to China and back to Canada. The transit must be to a third country for air travel purposes. This 72 hour visa is available when transiting the following airports: Beijing (PEK), Chengdu (CTU), Chongqing (CKG), Dalian (DLC), Guangzhou (CAN). Guilin (KWL), Shenyang (SHE); Xiamen (XMN) and Xi'An (XIY). Wuhan (WUH), Harbin (HRB) and Kunming (KWL). There are 3 requirements:
1) You must be a Citizens from one of the 45 countries (including Canada) in the 72-hour Transit Visa Exemption Program;
2) You must be a Canadian national / foreign national with a valid Canadian passport / international traveling document, and air ticket for a connecting flight with confirmed date of flight and seat for a third country or region traveling within 72 hours; and
3) You must be flying into and out of the Capital Airport of Beijing, or Pudong or Hongqiao Airports of Shanghai, or others, (see complete list above) to a third country.
This applies to Canadians and the following nationalities: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland; Russia, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine; United States, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, and Chile; Australia, and New Zealand; Korea, Japan, Singapore, Brunei, United Arab Emirates, and Qatar.
The Chinese Embassy in Ottawa states "Foreigners who have confirmed onward tickets and seats on international flights and directly transit through China and stay for no more than 24 hours within the airport boundaries shall not need to apply for a transit visa".

Hmmm I wonder if I can make my layover in beijing a bit longer to stay for like 2 days

You were on Hainan Airlines, not on air china. Air China only flies to Montreal and Vancouver.

Rafting across the Pacific is another option for you then. It's probably cheaper too.
