Million Mile Secrets reader Kathy Hart emails with a question:

Vancouver to Beijing, China for ~$531 (Won’t Last!)

Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook or Twitter!

Via Flyertalk, you can fly from Vancouver, Canada to Beijing, China for ~$531 round-trip in coach.

You can search for the fare on Kayak but you can only book it on Vayama, an online travel agency.  Kayak shows fares as low as $506, but when you click through the price goes up to ~$531.  I found this price in October 2014, but didn’t check for other dates.
