How to find and book this deal

1. These can be a little tricky to find. There are two strategies I would recommend:

a) Search for these flights at Momondo and click through to Flighthub or Expedia.

Sometimes you need to click on 'Best' after your Momondo search completes, to find these flights.

Otherwise, you may see flights that are slightly cheaper, but way, way longer.

or

b) Search for these flights at Skyscanner and click through to Nanak Flights or Flighthub.

Sometimes you need to click on 'More' under the Select button, after your Skyscanner search completes, to see Nanak Flights as the booking site.

With either method, the key is to look for the flights where the stopover length in Shanghai is somewhere between 3 to 6 hours each way.

2. After going to Momondo or Skyscanner, search for a flight from Toronto to...

Manila, Philippines (MNL)
or
Cebu, Philippines (CEB)

Use one of the following date combinations:

1. Try this Google Flights search...

Google Flights: Toronto to Manila, Philippines

Click on the departure date box to open up the calendar view and browse for cheap date combinations.

NOTE: For faster flights, I've had better luck trying the $642 date combinations from Google Flights in Step 2 below.

2. Go to Flighthub

Search for a flight from Toronto to Manila, Philippines (MNL).

Try the same dates you found with Google Flights.

Once your Flighthub search completes, you can click on 'Flexible Dates' to see if there are any other dates around the same time for a similar price.

Try looking for flights that are operated by ANA (All Nippon Airways) - a great airline!

The fastest flights have 2 stops each way, with around 23-36 hours of total travel time.

You can also turn these flights into 2-in-1 trips and visit both Tokyo, Japan and Manila, Philippines for $721 CAD roundtrip. A pretty great price to visit both Japan and SE Asia.

1. First, you may want to try finding a cheap roundtrip flight using the Google Flights link above.

2. Go to Flighthub

Click on 'Multi City'

3. Search for a flight like this one:

Toronto (YYZ) to Tokyo, Japan (TYO)

Then play around with the middle date, to give yourself more or less time in Tokyo vs Manila.
