$645 rt SFO to Maldives

China Eastern Airlines

7.9 Deal Rating

A tropical paradise of pristine pristine beaches, the bluest lagoons, and extensive reefs that invite diving and snorkeling. It's gradually sinking under rising waters so be sure to visit before it becomes the modern-day Atlantis.

Heads Up

Rock-bottom fare though the airline leaves a little to be desired. In fact, I think the passengers take turns flying the plane. We kid, we kid. Hey, it's not a premium carrier but, with a fare this low, how could you not?

Note that most flights have a long layover in Shanghai which could be good or bad depending on how you use it.
