I'll arrive in Beijing on 2 July 2012. I need flight tickets from Xi'an to Guilin on 11 July 2012. What's the best option? Wait being in Beijing and buy flight ticket at local travel agency or book it in advance from Europe? Thanks for you help!
Best is to buy them there! I bought a similar domestic flight 1 day in advance for no money. Booking flights from home can kill your impulsive travel ideas, you'll never know what great places you might discover.Keep your trip as flexible as possible ;) Check the ctrip website for a good price overview. about 8 years ago
You can buy them online at the local price, which is considerably cheaper, at english.ctrip.com. On the site you can pay with a credit card. If you use a travel agent in China, you will have to buy in cash, and speak some Chinese too, unless they speak good English, which they generally don't. :-) If you use Travelocity or some such you will pay more. I don't know if there are other sites like ctrip but I recommend it. almost 8 years ago
