YYZ - HKG - TOK airfare prices?

Hi,

not sure if this is the right place to post. I'm looking for airfare from Toronto to Hong Kong, Dec 11 and stay for a week. Then travel to Tokyo on Dec 18 and return to Toronto on Jan 4 or so. I'm finding airfares in the 2000 and up range, is that normal? I've never done multi-city so I'm clueless. I missed the YYZ - TOKYO deal a month ago so now I can't quite find such a deal. Buying 2 separate ticket isn't an option as I don't want to waste too much time on waiting and flying, (ie. Buying return flight from YYZ - HKG then buy a separate return flight ticket HKG - TOKYO)

In addition, any good/cheap place to stay in Tokyo?

Thanks in advance.

2000+ is normal for December/January, seeing that you're travelling during the high season where everyone wants to fly home to Hong Kong.

If you are flexible and want to save some money, you could book a round trip to Tokyo on Delta Dec 11-Jan 1, for $1178. Then book NRT-HKG on a separate ticket. Hong Kong Express has flights around $400.

When I have traveled to Asia during the holidays, I always ended up booking with a travel agent, and their prices are always better. I suggest contacting one, and you will likely get a better price.

I thought about doing this as well but I haven't done something like the before and don't want to get lost or mess up the booking. Will investigate to see the extra time needed to travel vs savings.

cheapest is to use your aeroplan points...using them during the high seasons gives the greatest value to those points

Whenever i'm in tokyo I always stay at the sunshine prince hotel because it's fairly cheap and it's location is pretty good. It's located at ikebukuro which is very close to everything around (subway is walking distance to the hotel (http://www.princehotels.com/en/sunshine/)

There's also a mall right next door to the hotel sunshine city and there's an amusement/food/game center call Namja Town inside (admission fee is needed) the area is pretty cool specially if you're into anime there's a lot to see there ~

not to mention the food is very good, there's hidden ramen and local shops in the alley way so don't be afraid to explore !

I cant recommend a travel agent unless you're in Vancouver. I can't tell your location as I'm using the mobile site.

Ask your friends and family for travel agent recommendations.

If you can find seats. Problem is seats are already difficult to find on most dates. For high season travel, especially near X-mas or new year, you'll be very lucky if you find any seat.

OP, you didn't provide your location. But most Asian TAs should be able to help.

Best use of Aeroplan miles if you have 75K (Economy), 2 free stopovers


Or do as others suggested, buy a Round-trip YYZ-Tokyo and separate tickets Tokyo-HKG. If you want to be safe, leave lots of time between connections, or even, stay 1-2 days before the "transfer" YYZ-NRT/HND-HKG-NRT/HND-YYZ

Yea I'm in Toronto. Going to check with travel agent to see what's the best option. Unfortunately I don't have that many Aeroplan miles :(

Thanks for the hotel recommendation and other hidden stuff that probably wouldn't be in the tour guide

You can get a round trip in Asia, like HKG-NRT for 20,000 aerorplan miles

Well I finally got my tickets multi-city for $18xx. Oh well. I checked the sunshine prince hotel and its around $190/night :( What kind of rates do you usually get? I'm seeing this through booking.com, Trivago is over $200/night
