Airfare ticket to Harbin from Khabarovsk

I have recently flown from Khabarovsk to Harbin. I did not know first if I can buy a ticket for a direct flight to Harbin, so I called my ticket agent to ask about such ticket. The ticket agent confirmed that there are regular flights directly to Harbin from Khabarovsk by Aeroflot. My flight to Harbin with Aeroflot was without problems and very pleasant. I bought the return ticket so I can return directly from Harbin to Khabarovsk, and after my visit of Harbin I flew back home again with Aeroflot. This was a nice experience and if I go to Harbin again, I will again look for a ticket with Aeroflot.

Visiting Harbin as part of my cultural trip to China

I booked a tour of northern China which included a visit in Harbin. The tour did not include the airfare ticket, so I went online to find such a ticket to fly to Harbin directly where I would join the touring group. I flew from Soul.. I did not find a ticket connecting the two cities directly. I know such ticket is available, but I could not find a free spot as I was looking for the ticket quite late. I finally bought a flight ticket from Seoul to Bejing, and then I flew from Beijing to Harbin on a ticket with Hainan Airlines. Both flights were very pleasant and Hainan airlines were great. I bought the airfare ticket on a ticket portal and I also bought my insurance there. The ticket was quite cheap.
