Voice of Travelers to Yantai

Airfare ticket to Yantai from Delhi

I needed to fly to Yantai to see the fishing port. When I searched at the online ticket portals, I failed to find a ticket to fly directly to Yantai. Yantai 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 Delhi to Shanghai and then another one from Shanghai to Yantai. This is how I eventually ended up buying my double lag ticket for Yantai. The ticket was issued with China Southern airlines which delivered great service for me. Yantai visit was great even if I would have preferred a ticket on a direct flight.

Visiting Yantai with a friend of mine

I lived in Singapore when I decided to pay a visit to my friend living in Yantai. 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 Yantai. I bought the second ticket them. Yantai was great in Christmas and we enjoyed it. I think I will come to Yantai again if I find a flight with a cheap ticket.
