[United.ca] & Air Canada: CDN Cities to Taipei From $521 CDN RT, Stopover in Tokyo: an Extra $120 CDN. Dates: OCT-MAY & AUG

***Now includes Air Canada flights***

A few Canadian cities (Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver, possibly more) have cheap airfare going to Taipei Taiwan. From Toronto I'm seeing flights for as cheap as $576 CDN roundtrip, taxes included. You have the option of adding a Tokyo stopover for an extra $120 CDN, so the total price comes out as cheap as $694 CDN roundtrip, taxes included.

Select dates from October 2018 to May 2019 & August 2019.

You can book directly with United Airlines. The easiest way I fine to find working dates is to use Google Flights:

Examples:

From YYZ (Toronto):
YYZ-TPE: March 6-21 $576 CDN:

YYZ-NRT-TPE: March 6-21-25 $694 CDN:

From Other Cities:

Ottawa-Taipei from $658 CDN: Jan 30-Feb 12:

Montreal (YUL) -Taipei (TPE) from $620 CDN: Jan 30-Feb 12:
https://www.google.com/flights#flt=YUL. ... 9354034280

Calgary (YYC) -Taipei (TPE) from $616 CDN: Jan 31-Feb 13:
https://www.google.com/flights#flt=YYC. ... 9354034294

Vancouver (YVR) -Taipei (TPE) from $521CDN: Jan 31-Feb 13:

***The blog Nextdeparture now has a post about this deal (from Toronto to Taipei). Check them out for more working date examples:

Note: United had a similar sale last Friday for flights going from some Canadian cities to Hong Kong for $600 RT CDN, taxes included. It only lasted for a few hours. If you want to fly to Taiwan (or Tokyo & Taiwan) for this price, book ASAP. If you book directly with United Airlines, they have a 24 hour free cancellation policy, so you have 24 hours to think about your purchase.

Agreed. Taiwan probably has the biggest and best street foods in the world. It's one of the reasons why major cities in North America have "night market" events now.

Food is good but street food is not that great really when compared to elsewhere in Asia. The night markets are okay and of course you have the beef noodles, ding tai Fung etc...but you soon realize the variety is not that big compared to places like Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia etc for street food and really good restaurants are few compared to places like Japan

Taiwan is fun for a few days though and cheap

I am from Taiwan. I think food is amazing there. There are so many different kinds of food other than Ding Tai Fung or beef noodle soup. And really it depends on which part of Taiwan did you go and where you eat.

Thank you for OP to find the great deal here.

Agreed. The food was one of the main things I loved about Taiwan, especially at the various night markets.

Leaving from major Canadian cities (YYZ) you would clear US customs BEFORE loading your luggage at the airport, meaning you don't drop off your bags with the airlines until you've cleared US pre-clearance in Toronto

Food isn't good in Taiwan.... hah what a joker...

The hidden secret in my opinion for Taiwan (especially Taipei) is not to eat chinese food..its to eat Japanese food.

This is especially relevant if you are travelling from a place with great chinese food already (e.g. Toronto or Vancouver). Toronto/ Vancouver's chinese food is arguably the same if not better for certain types of chinese food (e.g. Cantonese cuisine), thus I prefer to spend my vacation dollars on the Japanese food in Taiwan since Toronto Japanese food is sub-par at best. Taiwan was a Japanese colony for 50 years, so a lot of the Japanese culture has been embedded in the Taiwan life. There's a huge Japanese ex-pat community in Taipei, so there is demand for high quality Japanese food. Essentially you get Japan level quality food for 30% less.

Try the following restaurants while in Taipei:
  • Kanpai (Yakiniku - grilled meats)
  • Manjedad (Chirashi - Sashimi on rice)
  • Host Shabu (Shabu-Shabu - japanese hotpot)
