Can I ask what are the airlines that fly directly from SG to Okinawa ?

Jetstar (that's 2am flight from SG right ?)

Scoot ?

Siklair ?

The rest all need to transit somewhere right ?

Popular choice seems Cathay transit HK or China airlines transit Taipei

Need to spend how many hours more transiting ?

Spending the night on a budget airline doesn't seem very appealing

Only Jetstar flies direct. The rest are with transits unless specially chartered.

Reporting from Oki and I’m still here

Yes JS is the best and $200ish/pax. When they first started, it was $120ish/pax omfg


Usually I like to buy those passes (eg. Gogopass/Main pass) which includes Churaumi Aquarium to maximise savings.

When I was here in May, it was hot hot hot.

In Sep, I am taking a risk because it is still their typhoon season. I experience occasional short showers, no heavy downpour.

I’m back here because of Okinawa beef and pork, omg so so good so I’m back again.

I rent from them twice cause from a certain website, the price so cheap cheap cheap.




Ytd went maeda point and snorkel

Okinawa is a pretty laid back place.

I was there in March this year. Great place to relax and destress.

People there dun go for branded. Was at DFS and was like dead shopping mall lol.

Gotta try the brown sugar mochi and the doughnuts

Kokusai Street can go on weekends and they close off traffic.

Usually I stay $50-60/night for 2pax w free parking. If need pay parking, usually 1000yen/night so is still good.

JS never include Oki in the free seats promo
