The deal
If that darn travel bug is starting to buzz again, don’t try and fight it. Let’s face it − you’ll eventually give in to its call and will likely end up paying top-dollar by waiting until the last minute. Instead, take advantage of some of the killer fare sales currently running with numerous carriers to Japan, China, Taiwan and other destinations in Asia. Fares are being slashed across the board including low prices on Hainan Airlines, EVA Air and Korean Air, but Asiana Airlines is leading the charge with some top-notch rates on routes to Shanghai, Taipei and beyond starting from as little as $260 each way. Travel is valid through Dec. 7, but dates vary depending in departure and arrival city.

Our editors put Asiana’s sale fares to the test and found the following low rates with taxes and fees:

• Seattle−Shanghai: $672

• Chicago−Taipei: $748

• New York−Manila: $795

• Los Angeles−Hong Kong: $698

• And more!

The dollars
All fares listed are round-trip.

The catch
Although daily service is offered from New York and Los Angeles, you’ll have to be somewhat flexible with your dates when flying from other U.S. cities.
