Trip Summary: Asia Tour 2013

More than a year ago, I started planning out a tour of Asia. Since time was on my side, I had the opportunity to really leverage all the points I had been accumulating for some time and find the best deals since I was flexible.

Now that the trip is over, I think I’ve convinced a few more people that points can have a huge value, and can honestly say I had the trip of a lifetime. I would have had a trip of a lifetime regardless of points, but I was able to gain more than $20,000 in benefits for just a little time and effort in building points, and redeeming them.

I’ll be adding full details soon, but here’s the summary of point redemptions:

1. Flights:
– 3 RT business class fares on Cathay Pacific to/from JFK/HKG.
– 3 RT economy fares on Cathay Pacific to/from HKG/SIN.

2. Hotels:
– HI Express Hong Kong Soho
– Sheraton Singapore
– Conrad Koh Samui
– Intercontinental Hong Kong (TST).
