"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YVR." - Chris Myden

Vancouver to Vietnam, and then the Philippines to Vancouver - $460 CAD including taxes | add Japan for $46

Vietnam and the Philippines

There are some insane open jaw flight prices out there, where you fly from Vancouver to Vietnam and then fly home from Manila, Philippines to Vancouver - all for just $460 CAD including taxes.

Getting from one country to the other

It typically costs around $130 CAD (or less) to fly from Vietnam to the Philippines.

Tip: For flights from Vietnam to the Philippines, have a look at Cebu Pacific Air. They don't show up on many travel search engines, but have non-stop flights for around $96 to $123 USD.

If you change it to 'United States of America English' in the top right corner before you search, the prices will be in $USD, instead of the Philippine peso.

    Awesome! I noticed it goes from SEA - NRT (Tokyo). You think that means you can have a stopover in Tokyo without paying more?

    Dan: I added a paragraph to the bottom that shows how to add Tokyo, Japan. It seems to add around $46 to the price.

    $506 with Tokyo, Japan included is the cheapest I've seen.

    Thanks for finding this amazing deal. Question: When I click the "book with ANA" link at the bottom of the Google flights quote page, it takes directly to the ANA home page. Not to a link where I can actually book. Then when I enter the flight info in the ANA reservation page, the flight is almost twice as expensive.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for your help.

    Just a data point: Booked from YYJ with Jan departure and February return through Flighthub at 419. It was cancelled about an hour later.

    Just rebooked through Cheapoair with slightly different itinerary - hopefully it sticks! Thanks Chris!

    Booked January 25 YVR - HND; Feb 1 NRT - SGN; Feb 15 MNL - YVR for $524 directly on ANA's website. Thank you so much Chris - been itching to go to Asia and this was too good to pass up :)

    Thanks for this! Will be booking very soon. For the flight details, does this include from Vietnam to Manila? I somehow don't see a connecting flight from Vietnam to Manila.

    No problem Megan! Have a great trip!

    Lovely: I added a note to the top of the blog post, you may want to check out Cebu Pacific Air for non-stop flights between Vietnam and Manila at a reasonable price.

    ANA lowered price even more for open jaws involving Vietnam and the Philippines for some reasons. I've booked tonight:
    1/8 YVR-HND, 1/10 NRT-SGN, 1/29 MNL-HND-YVR on flightnetwork.com for C$387 after $10 coupon code 3P10OFF321.

    Booking code with ANA was sent right away, and eticket was sent in 20 minutes, so hopefully this isn't a mistake fare.

    For similar dates, backward (PH first, then VN) is available for slightly more, but I didn't like having overnight AND NRT/HND land transfer, while my itinerary has only 4 hours layover at HND on 1/29.

    I also tried to make a stay in Japan for about a week, but it costs at least $150 more, which is still a bargain considering how much it normally costs YVR-TYO round trips, but at least I have a 'free one night stop over' this time (albeit it involves HND-NRT transfer), so I'll travel Japan some other time.

    Does anybody know anything about free transit hotel offers by ANA?

    Does the flights include any free checked in baggage allowance?
