2-in-1 Trip: Vancouver (or Victoria) to Singapore and Japan - $678 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Singapore and Japan

Now that Japan is finally re-opening on October 11th (no more mandatory guided tours, daily caps, or visa requirements) many of us have been wondering when there will be a great deal to Japan again.

Prior to the pandemic there would occasionally be some amazing price drops from Vancouver to Japan with roundtrip flights temporarily available in the high $400s to low $600s CAD roundtrip including taxes.

The last time that happened was actually two years ago, *during* the pandemic.

After that, prices to Japan kept creeping upwards and never looked back. Today they sit at approximately $1200-$1300 CAD roundtrip for the cheapest nonstop flights.


When Australia opened back up, the astronomical flight prices from North America came back down to earth. Yes the demand was higher, but more supply also became available (more flights).

Will the same thing happen with Japan? My gut would say yes, eventually. The same market forces that were leading to great deals to Japan between 2016 and 2019 should eventually return. It's just tough to predict when that will be. But is there anything we can do in the meantime?


As you may have seen recently the first strong deal to emerge from Vancouver to Asia was to Singapore. At $598 to $650 CAD roundtrip the price for YVR-SIN is pretty close to the great deals witnessed between 2018 and 2019.

Those prices are still around and using some Multi-City magic it's possible to turn them into a great "2-in-1 deal" where you can visit both Singapore *and* Japan for $678 CAD roundtrip.

May 22 to May 29, 30, 31, Jun 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11 -- $707

May 23 to May 31, Jun 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13 -- $707
May 24 to Jun 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15
May 25 to Jun 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18
May 28 to Jun 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18, 19, 20

May 29 to Jun 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18, 19, 20, 21 -- $723
May 30 to Jun 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18, 19, 20, 22, 25
May 31 to Jun 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18, 19, 20, 22, 25

Jun 6 to Jun 13, 14, 15, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 25, 26-30 -- $746
Jun 7 to Jun 13, 14, 15, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 25, 26-30

Step 4 - For Leg #2 (the middle leg) try using a date that is 3 days after the date in Leg #1.

For example, if your start and end dates from above are May 18 to May 31, you could try searching for...

May 18 to May 21 to May 31.

This gives you a few days in Singapore.



If you try to reduce the number of days in Singapore to less than a few days, the flight price goes up.

You can however increase the number of days in Singapore without affecting the price.

NOTE: Most of these flights fly into Tokyo's NRT airport, and then home from Tokyo's HND airport. It's not an issue since you're spending time in Japan, but just be aware.
