American Airlines to China, Japan for under $700

This is a great deal on American Airlines to go to either Japan (Tokyo) or China (Beijing, Shanghai). Fares are good until Friday the 18th and you need to depart by March 31st.

For US Passport holders, Japan just requires a passport. For China, you need a visa - an expensive one. The Chinese Consulate is located at 1 East Erie St, 5th Floor. It's $130, and requires you to have a photo, a filled out passport form, hotel and airline reservations. It takes about a week to get back. I've been to the consulate a few times, and it's hit or miss on service.

So c'mon - use that tax refund and head to Asia.
