Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

Getting to Hong Kong has become cheaper and cheaper over the years with increased competition to one of the world’s busiest airports. However, prices have dropped even further with flights from the US to Hong Kong starting at just $385 round-trip. We’re seeing low fares from Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), San Diego (SAN), Boston (BOS), Washington, DC (IAD), Cincinnati (CVG) and Las Vegas (LAS). Other cities may be available with low prices, too, so it may be worth checking if your city isn’t listed below.

There are plenty of points hotels in the Hong Kong: check out our reviews for the Conrad Hong Kong, the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong and the newly opened St. Regis Hong Kong.
