As I posted about a while back, I’m off to Asia on Monday with a friend. I’ll do my best to keep current (although I do try to stay somewhat “disconnected” when traveling, just to preserve the little sanity I have left). You can expect a trip report with plenty of pictures.
I’m flying TPA-ORD-NRT-HKG-SIN-DPS-SIN-PVG-YYZ-ORD-TPA with Ted (TPA-ORD-TPA), ANA (ORD-NRT-HKG), Singapore Airlines (HKG-SIN-DPS, DPS-SIN-PVG), and Air Canada (PVG-YYZ-ORD). The only new product for me will be Air Canada’s new ExecutiveFirst product, which I’m quite excited about since I’m a big fan of Air New Zealand BusinessPremier and it looks like a similar seat design. That being said, NH and SQ never get old, they’re both fantastic airlines.
I’ll also be reporting on the following hotels:
- InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong (one night)
- Holiday Inn Macau (one night)
- Conrad Hong Kong (one night)
- InterContinental Bali (two nights)
- Renaissance Chicago O’Hare Suites (one night)
Most of the stays are on points, with some kind of discount, or using a free night certificate, or else I’d be “slumming it” at cheaper hotels throughout.
While the weather doesn’t look great in Hong Kong, I’m excited!
