Thanks for the find. I'm debating it right now. There's basically nothing at all from Toronto. Too bad Hong Kong is so expensive!

Just stay out of the core and its quite affordable. HR Sha Tin is wonderful and can easily be had for $100 per night; plus its ~50m from the University East Rail station.

Warning to AC flyers they may not get full miles on the AC flights... so look for routing to avoid AC .. Go via GUM for more miles.

i get it on matrix however i had to add SFO as a connection... also i use US currency and BOS as city base?
apparently GUM works and that should help to Avoid Air Canada.

This is a bit off-topic for sure, but Hong Kong is fairly affordable all over the place, even in Central or anywhere on the Island.

My wife and I have been 9 times (all pleasure) and each time we had our rooms for less than US$110 a night...aside from the few nights we were overlooking the harbour (Sheraton Towers).

That said, a bowl of wonton soup at Tsim Cha Kee on Wellington or some Xiao Long Bao at Crystal Jade or even Fu Sing will set you back a few US$, but comparing it to nice local dining in Toronto even or other 'world' cities and Hong Kong is not bad.

Naturally, you can spend a few hundred easily on a nice meal at Tin Lung Heen or the tens of other Michelin starred places, but eating well and staying cheap, plus mass transit and the excitement from the location should be more than enough to make it worth it for a MR! Plus, no visa fee (assuming American/Canadian) helps quite a bit.

Please be aware that it is codeshared with AC.

UA's K class may realign with AC's Tango, which is eligible for 50% only.

Hence, the cpm will increase to 5.4 cpm.

It is still a good find.

Isn't that ironic ? The fare is for Toronto but only US customers can see it ?
