We're seeing deals from US cities like Los Angeles (LAX), Chicago (ORD) and Boston (BOS) -- to several cities in China, Korea and Southeast Asia starting at just $353 round-trip. Multiple airlines are included in the deal, such as Xiamen, Air Canada and United. We first spotted the Xiamen deals at Miles to Memories.

To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or an OTA like Orbitz or Expedia. To get the absolute best price on some routes, you can search on SkyScanner or Momondo and book through an OTA. Just note that it may be harder to deal with some of the smaller OTA’s customer service if you want to change your flight or if something goes wrong.
