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.
Now is the time to book your trip to one of the cultural centers of the world. Flights from Boston (BOS), Los Angeles (LAX), San Fransisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA), New York (JFK), Newark (EWR), Chicago (ORD), Denver (DEN), Raleigh (RDU), Portland (PDX) and Las Vegas (LAS) to Hong Kong (HKG) are available starting from $449 round-trip on full-service carriers.
In the densely populated city of Hong Kong, there just as many activities to take part in as people to meet. You could take a trip to the quieter part of the city to visit the Man Mo Temple, which was built back in 1847 and is a must-see when in Hong Kong.
