Vancouver to Tokyo, Japan to Hong Kong and then back to Vancouver - $661 roundtrip including taxes
There are some pretty crazy prices floating around on a few well known booking sites involving multi-city flights from Vancouver to Tokyo to Hong Kong, and then back to Vancouver, all for under $700 including all taxes.
A word of caution up front: It's a little concerning that WebJet and CheapoAir seem to be the only booking agencies displaying these prices. Not in terms of the legitimacy of either booking agency, but just because in the past I've seen them both display prices that they couldn't really deliver on (ie, person thinks they have something booked, but they really don't, and receive a follow-up phone call/e-mail later on saying their flight couldn't be booked at X price).
So for those that take the plunge on this one, definitely wait a little while before booking any accommodations or anything that's non-refundable, just to be sure, and keep the expectations low until the dust settles.
^^ There have now been many reports of people receiving their confirmed tickets from WebJet.ca just fine when this same price drop occurred back on April 27. See Update 3 below.
Update 1 - April 27 @ 12:04 PM PST - A random check of various dates shows that this may now be sold out. The lowest prices are returning at approximately $1049 CAD.
Update 2 - April 28 @ 8:36 AM PST - Vancouver-Tokyo for $644 (non-stop both ways) is back! Screenshot from WebJet a few seconds ago: Sep 16-30 - http://www.yvrdeals.com/img/ul/ha489qcpapk0npxm.jpg - the multi-city deal (Tokyo & Hong Kong for $661) does not seem to have returned.
Update 3 - April 28 @ 11:57 AM PST - Reports of people receiving their ANA All Nippon reservation numbers for the YVR-Tokyo-Hong Kong-YVR deal via WebJet. See comment section at bottom of blog post. If you go to http://manage.webjet.com/booking-details and enter your booking reference, it should bring up the ANA reservation number.
Update 4 - April 28 @ 1:30 PM PST - Vancouver-Tokyo for $644 roundtrip looks to be gone again. $899 seems to be the cheapest available.
Update 5 - May 6 @ 9:15 AM PST - The multi-city flights are back on WebJet.ca ! And this time, they're even slightly cheaper, at $630 CAD ! If you bought them at $660 CAD, don't feel too bad about it, these things are impossible to predict, and both prices are ridiculous. There was just as good a chance that they would never return. Try the same dates as shown in Step 1 below.

How to find and book these flights...
(Note: Of the two, WebJet seems to be showing cheaper prices overall)

Vancouver to Tokyo, Japan (TYO)
Tokyo to Hong Kong (HKG)
Hong Kong to Vancouver
As for dates, pick Wednesday flights, between September 2015 and March 2016.
Some examples that are working as of 9 AM PST
example from WebJet.ca:
Some date combinations are returning at $661. Others at $689. October 7/14/21 is an example of one currently coming up at $661.
Update @ 10:11 AM - Some people are reporting even slightly cheaper date combinations. Sep 02 / 11 / 15 is coming up at $644 on WebJet.
Some combinations have stops.
Others have non-stop flights between Vancouver-Tokyo, and Tokyo-Hong Kong, with a stop in both Tokyo and Osaka on the way home. That's the best I've seen so far. The October dates above return such an itinerary.
Step 2. Proceed with booking

And of course, the number one rule, *do not call CheapoAir or WebJet, for *any* reason. They will not offer to book it over the phone, and could potentially disable the fare from being booked online, especially if it turns out to be a mistake. There is absolutely nothing to be gained by calling. That goes for all unusual fares :)
