Voice of Travelers to Yan'an

Airfare ticket to Yan'an from Kuala Lumpur

I needed to fly to Yan'an as part of my business trip. When I searched at the online ticket portals, I could not find a ticket to fly directly to Yan'an. Yan'an was not included in the offer of any of the airlines features at the ticket portal. So I made a trip to the local ticket agency and the ticket agent there offered me a return ticket from Kualal Lumpur to Beijing and then another one from Beijing to Yan'an. This is how I eventually ended up buying my double lag ticket for Yan'an. The ticket was issued with Hainan airlines which delivered great service for me. Yan'an visit was great even if I would have preferred a ticket on a direct flight.

Visiting Hangzhou for the first time

I lived in Osaka when I decided to pay a visit to my friend living in Yan'an. I started searching for the ticket early as I wanted to fly out for Christmas. The ticket for a direct flight with China Eastern Airlines was beyond my reach. Much cheaper was the ticket with Air Nippon to Beijing and then another ticket with Hainan Airlines to Yan'an. I bought the second ticket them. Yan'an was great in Christmas and I enjoyed it. It was definitely not my last time in Yan'an.
