Celebrating the Chinese New Year

Sure, there are parades in New York, San Francisco, Vancouver, Sydney and many other cities around the world, but why not celebrate in Hong Kong, considered by many to be the original parade celebration. Business travel drops off around that time, as no business gets done in the few weeks leading up to and following the celebration, so airfares drop. Continental offers up some pretty impressive sales on their BusinessFirst seats, as low as $2300 round trip. If that’s too rich for your blood (and it is for mine), there is always United’s sale on coach seats, with fares from about $600 r/t from JFK.

So I’m going. The price is right, and I’ll get there for the last day of the New Years markets and then for the parades. Should be fun.

  1. Glad to see I’m not the only one crazy enough to do this. Looking forward to seeing you on the plane and/or in HKG!
