LAX-CNX Chiang Mai $561 China Southern

Los Angeles LAX to CNX Chiang Mai, Thailand for $561 round trip, bypasses the need to connect through Bangkok. These low fare flights route through CAN Guangzhou Airport, China and many itineraries require an overnight in Guangzhou. Guangzhou is a major port city on mainland China near Hong Kong.

Given the state of China’s economic slowdown, I thought hotel prices in Guangzhou would likely be in the $50 to $80 per night range for most chain brand hotels. Kind of shocking to see hotel rates at the chain brands in the $200s and $300s for Sheraton and Crowne Plaza in the city. Many luxury hotel brands are in the city with truly luxury market segment hotel rates comparable to the USA. For an airport hotel location, Holiday Inn Guangzhou Airport Zone is around $60 per night.
