If you want to experience an authentic Chinese New Year, you're an adventurous world traveler, and maybe a bit of a procrastinator, don't worry -- it's not too late to book flights to Asia for its Spring Festival celebrations on Feb. 10.

Jaunted compiled a list of the most and least affordable flights to Singapore, Tokyo, Shanghai and Hong Kong, where the fireworks displays will be the largest -- departing from New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. To find them, Jaunted staff used Kayak.com's flexible date search, and looked plus or minus two days around a departure date of Feb. 7 and a return of Feb. 12.

Fares aren't cheap if you're booking this late, but it is possible to still get a flight in the $1,000 range, and possibly a bit cheaper. Here's what they found:

 New York to Singapore:

Best price: $1066 on Delta, changing planes in Tokyo

Worst price: $4321 on Air Canada, changing planes in Vancouver and Hong Kong

New York to Taiwan:

 Best price: $850 on China Airlines, changing planes in Osaka

Worst price: $4265 on KLM, changing planes in Amsterdam

Los Angeles to Shanghai:

Best price: $812 on American, nonstop

Worst price: $4345 on Lufthansa, changing planes in Chicago and Frankfurt

Los Angeles to Hong Kong:

Best price: $948 on United, changing planes in Tokyo

 Worst price: $3659 on Air Pacific, changing planes in Nadi, Fiji

San Francisco to Shanghai:

 Best price: $1006 on Korean Air, changing planes in Seoul

Worst price: $5542 on KLM, changing planes on Amsterdam

San Francisco to Hong Kong:

Best price: $977 on Singapore Airlines, nonstop

Worst price: $5840 on Thai Airways, changing planes in Tokyo and Bangkok

Enjoy your trip, and book as soon as you can. As Kayak.com advises, "The earlier you book, the more you save."

If these prices are too high, and traveling during a busy season isn't for you, plan to visit during the summertime instead, according to Chinahighlights.com, when competition for flights, hotels and other resources is less intense.
