Best One Way Business Class Fares
Majestic, poignant and historic, much of the world's history is tied up in some of its most beloved clock towers. Travelers can skip the predictable itineraries by creating an unusual journey exploring the world's massive clocks and the architectural, technological and cultural triumphs they represent. Five clock towers are our favorites, some for their history, some for their grand scale and some for the message of hope and peace they protray. Travelers can even fly to these clock towers in style with cheap business class flights and first class specials.
Big Ben, London
Gorgeous Elizabeth Tower is home to the legendary 13-ton Big Ben bell and Great Westminster Clock, the world's largest four-faced chiming clock. The 1859 neo-Gothic clock features dials that are nearly 30 feet in diameter and two-foot tall numerals. During World War II blitzes of London, the bell continued chiming, reassuring the community that London still stood. Summer is high season in London, so travelers will more easily find cheap first class tickets and business class to London in the fall, winter and spring.
Housed in the neo-Gothic New Town Hall, the Glockenspiel is located in the balcony of the tower. Chiming at 11 o'clock each day, the two-tier display reenacts some of the city's cultural touchpoints in a 12-minute spectacle with finely carved figurines: the marriage of Duke Wilhelm V, its celebratory joust and the cooper's dance, Schäfflertanz. As with most European destinations, summer is peak season in Munich, so cheap first class prices and the best deals on business class to Europe are found from March to May and September to November.
Makkah Royal Clock Tower, Mecca
The world's largest clock face is located in the heart of Saudi Arabia's Mecca. At 1,833 feet tall, it's also the tallest clock tower on earth. An observation deck at the clock's base provides a unique viewing experience, and the building itself houses a hotel, residences, an Islamic museum and a lunar observatory. The best time to find cheap business class tickets and first class deals to the Holy City are from November to January.
Twin Clock Tower, Seoul
A powerful element of the War Memorial of Korea, the Twin Clock Tower isn't the traditional tower. Depicting the never-ending struggle between North and South, the two clocks are held by statues of young girls. One clock displays the day and hour that war began between South Korea and North Korea. The other clock is blank, awaiting the time it can display the day and hour Korea is reunified. Low and shoulder seasons for Seoul are May to June and September to December, so those are terrific times to find cheap business class to Asia and especially cheap first class to Seoul
Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
Standing 144 feet tall, Hong Kong's Clock Tower is a local favorite and an enticing attraction to visitors. Now resting at the base of Salisbury Road next to the ferry pier, the clock tower was a symbol of hope and welcome to millions of Chinese immigrants. It has operated nearly ceaselessly since its creation in 1921, but it did not run during the World War II Japanese occupation of Hong Kong. Discounted business class to Hong Kong and first class airfare deals are abundant year-round, but are most easily found in winter and summer.
There is hope for travelers who would rather spend their time enjoying their destinations than searching for discounted business class tickets and first class deals. IFlyFirstClass specializes in offering the best deals business class has to offer as well as cheap first class fares to dozens of international destinations and clock towers.
