United has round-trip flights from Houston (IAH) to Shanghai (PVG) for $498 with a connection. Flights August to December. A Tourist Visa is Required for American Citizens.

Note: The Chinese Consulate is in Houston (Montrose), and you can apply and pick up your visa in person. When we did it, it took about 25-minutes, and the turn-around was 3-days.

Note: There is also visa free 72-hour transit, if you plan on only using China as a connection to elsewhere.

  • Before you finalize your purchase, do a quick check on BookingBuddy to see if any other site or airline is offering a better deal. Different booking websites will often have differing routes, prices, and availability.
  • If you want to see other deals that are still bookable you should check out the “Bookable Deals” page on our site. It filters out deals that have expired, or have low availability.

When you are ready to book your flight or hotel, please use the links on our site to begin your booking process so we receive credit for the referral.

If you plan on booking a hotel, use our travel coupon codes to save up to 15% to 20% off. Alternatively, you may be able to save the most money by booking your trip as a Flight + Hotel package on Priceline, Travelocity, or Orbitz.

Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 24-hours, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.
