Voice of Travelers to Guangzhou

Airfare ticket to Canton from Dubai

I flew to Canton to attend the Canton Fair last year. My ticket agent which we often buy a flight ticket from issued the ticket for on a direct flight from Dubai to Canton. To find a reasonably-priced ticket, one has to book the ticket ahead of time. The ticket issued for me was a return ticket with China Southern Airlines and this ticket allowed me to stay in Canton for three full days. I thouroughly enjoyed my stay in Canton and even attempted to re-book my ticket in order to return to Dubai two days later than planned, yet my ticket agent could not find a free ticket on that particular date anymore. China Southern gave great service. The ticket with China Southern Airlines to Canton was also cheaper than the same ticket with Emirates Airlines.

Visiting Canton on a return ticket Tokyo

I lived in Tokyo two years ago and for one of my vacations I decided to go to Canton when I found a fairly cheap ticket with China Southern Airlines. My ticket was issued for the flight from Tokyo Haneda airport to Canton airport. I found the ticket through the ticket portal of the airlines which I found very easy to navigate. Likewise, all the services delivered by this airline, both on the way to Canton and back, were just great. The only thing was that my ticket was not reimbursable in case I could not fly to Canton after purchasing it, but this was a minor disturbance.
