Let’s start with this: there’s a lot of civil unrest in Hong Kong on the weekends right now. The State Department hasn’t raised the travel advisory level above normal, but I would be aware of the political sensibilities there and any problems you may encounter. That said, if you want to visit, United has a fantastic deal for a week-long vacation: $359 round trip, direct flights in main cabin economy.  That is the lowest price I’ve seen all year, including any number of layovers.This price is available in August and September; if you can’t leave quite so soon, prices for 1-stops are right at $500 from October through March. American is also offering directs from Los Angeles on scattered dates at $500, though 1-stops at that price are more common. The 1-stop prices are good for Thanksgiving, but not Christmas, and extend to next spring.

As noted, these are main cabin fares. That means seat choice and 2 checked bags are included. That makes the San Francisco fare tough to beat. These book directly through the airline. Again, I cannot predict what affect the unrest in Hong Kong will have for tourists, though the US government seems to consider it a relative non-issue. So go with caution but act quickly on the direct, because as we near the departure dates those won’t last long at all.
