Writing

My husband and I are planning to go to Hawaii for the Spring Festival.As a tradition ,we will have dinner with our families on new year ‘s eve January 24th ,so we want to go for holiday on January 25th. I searched on the website for round trip tickets from Shanghai to Honolulu ,departing on the 25th of January and returning on the 31st of January. We haven’t decided which flight we should book ,because the fare of direct flight is more expensive, but the non-direct flight has a 4 hour and 40 minute layover at Tokyo airport that will take longer time.
