expired Auckland to Sanya, China + 1 Free Night Hotel in Shenzen $587 Return via Hainan Airlines (March)
Hainan Airlines, one of the top 5 star airlines in the world is offering flights to Sanya, China for $587. Sanya is supposedly the Hawaii of China. These flights are a few hundred dollar more normally however I've found Air China offering similar flights for $125 more. Dates are in March.
However, the big + of Hainan is that they'll put you up in free accommodation for stopovers bigger than 6 hours. So potentially you can score 2 nights free hotels which allows you to check out Shenzen for the day. Hainan's Transfer Accommodation Service
