Voice of Travelers to Yanji

Airfare ticket to Yan'an from Kuala Lumpur

I needed to fly to Yanji as part of my business trip. When I searched at the online ticket portals, I could not find a ticket to fly directly to Yanji. Yanji 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 Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and then another one from Beijing to Yanji. This is how I eventually ended up buying my double lag ticket for Yanji. The ticket was issued with Hainan airlines which delivered great service for me. Yanji visit was great even if I would have preferred a ticket on a direct flight.

Visiting Yanji for the first time

I lived in Seoul when I decided to pay a visit to my friend living in Yanji. 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 Hainan airlines to Beijing and then another ticket with Hainan Airlines to Yanji. I bought the second ticket them. Yanji was great in Christmas and I enjoyed it. It was definitely not my last time in Yanji.
