Your love for African adventure will surely find fulfilment if you travel to Johannesburg. This journey is also your window of opportunity to explore the historical foundation of South Africa.

The Cradle of Mankind and the Gold Reef City excursion are a good chance to do just that.

You can immerse yourself in the greatest dance festival of the south, FNB Dance Umbrella also held around this time. Tickets to Johannesburg around this time; like every other time of the year, are easy to come by. Cheap hotels in Johannesburg are bountiful approaching the end of January; it is advisable you book for around this time to avoid the crowds.

Flying from China

Reserve your flights from China to many intriguing destinations and travel in comfort when you fly with Etihad Airways.

Major Airports in China

From Beijing, passengers can fly from Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK). As the busiest airport in Asia, Beijing Capital is often crowded and so boarding passengers should plan to arrive early. There are numerous facilities, including the global kitchen where passengers can dine on the cuisines of many different nationalities.

Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) serves the city of Shanghai. The airport is located about 30km from Shanghai city centre and should not be confused with Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport (SHA) on the west side, which serves mostly domestic flights.

Airport Transportation in China

The futuristic Maglev Train to Shanghai Pudong Airport runs from the Longyang Road Metro Station, taking less than 8 minutes to travel 30 km. A taxi to Shanghai Pudong Airport takes between 45 and 60 minutes. Ten different bus lines offer a bus service to Shanghai Pudong Airport from Shanghai city centre.

A train to Beijing Capital Airport is the best travel option with the Airport express running directly to Terminals 2 and 3, taking 20 minutes from the Dongzhimen area in Beijing city.

Plan Your Cork Holiday

Travel to Cork and surround yourself with awe-inspiring natural beauty that is, by itself, worthy of your visit.

Cork contains a number of charming markets, including the Old English Market and the Coal Quay Market, and no trip to Cork would be complete without a trip to kiss the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle, one the most impressive castles in Ireland.

Many of the attractions available in the city are best enjoyed in warm weather. We recommend travellers book their tickets to Cork between May and September.
