Budget carrier Scoot is set to commence new flights to historic Chinese cities Qingdao (from $202 return) and Shenyang (from $262 return) on January 11.
These services are the latest in Scoot’s line-up. The airline launched their inaugural flight to Sydney in June and quickly commenced services to the Gold Coast (June 12), Bangkok (July 5), Taipei (October 3) and Tokyo (October 29). They also have 13 joint itineraries with Tiger Airways.
Both Qingdao (a major city in eastern province Shandong) and Shengyang, capital of northeastern province Liaoning, offer plenty of historically significant attractions from China’s later periods.
Qingdao was colonized by the Germans in the 1800s and still offers fine examples of unique German-influenced architecture while Shengyang is home to Dongling, tomb of the first Qing emperor and Qing imperial palace, Mukden Palace.
