Airfare ticket to Guilin from Osaka

I flew to Guilin last September for a festival. I was researching for the best and cheapest tickets within the online ticket portals, but I found the prices for a return ticket Osaka-Guilin-Osaka to be quite high. This is why I decided to give a call to a ticket agent. The ticket agent suggested an alternative ticket to Guilin which consisted of two parts. One part was a ticket from Osaka to Beijing with Nippon Air and the second ticket would be then issued by China Eastern Airlines which has by far the cheapst flight ticket for Guilin. I decided to go for it, and the ticket agent issued the ticket for me with the transit in Beijing. Both airlines delivered good service on board and my trip to Guilin was truly a good one.

Visiting Guilin on a return ticket from Jakarta

I lived in Jakarta two years ago and for one of my vacations I decided to go to Guilin when my distant relatives lived. I found a fairly cheap ticket with Batik air, a charter company. My ticket was issued for the flight from Jakarta Soekarno airport directly to Guilin 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 Guilin and back, were just great. The only thing was that my ticket was not reimbursable in case I could not fly back from Guilin on the date on which my ticket was issued, but I did not plan a change of a flight date from Guilin anyway.
