Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Re: Thailand Master Thread
« on: October 16, 2012, 09:31:50 AM »
ok, so i'm planning a thailand / asia trip for 2 couples sometime in jan / feb. still working on refining my plan, but here is what i have in mind so far:

- want to use the USair 90K biz rate to north asia award (especially due to their current 100% bonus on sharing miles) and fly NYC – TYO – HKG and back HKG-NYC.while staying couple of days on Tokyo and few days in HKG.

- figured, I’ll use air asia to fly from HKG to Thailand, hop around in Thailand (planning few days in BKK, few in CNX, and few in a nice beachy resort, probably  phuket, krabi or ko samui), and then back to HKG for the return leg  home. Should be fairly inexpensive from the prices I saw on their website, even after factoring in baggage fees.

Was hoping I could get some feedback on the “proposed plan”, and also a recommendation as to what is the best beach / island resort to stay in during the jan / feb time frame.


Anybody that was there would not recommend  spending more than one day in BKK, you will be much better off spending the time in CNX. As discussed above the only thing to really see in BKK is the palace, and maybe the floating market.
Good luck with the planninig.

Only available in 12 states.

Got mine.
 I ordered it a few days after the deal was officially over.

I emailed them about this (after ordering the first night this was available) and they responded saying that they have sold out of this item and therefore will not be sending me mine.  This is the 2nd time I have had a negative experience with one of their promo items.  I understand that it was free but it seems really poor business practice to offer these free items and then not come through with the item.  But I guess there is little we can do.

I just got them to accept my return on the case of the Lenovo Z570 bringing the total down to 288$ :D
They said usually they do not do it on a Combo.

How do i fill out the rebate if i did not recieve the computer yet? They need the actual serial number and the rebate expires on 9/3.

Just ordered it, Im 99% sure i will not get it :D
The last time i ordered it was the 8GB SD card a month ago, and i am still waiting, every time i email them they send me another Routing number does not work.

If lifetime maps is not important to you, here is this is the same one as Ergel, except it only has lifetime traffic not the map updates and its 109$ which is quite decent.

I have the Garmin 1690 its the ONLY Garmin i found that comes with 2 years google search free, which means you can search addresses by phone number or you could put in the word Kosher and it will find you all the Kosher restaurants in the area.

Im not sure why this is one of the less known models but i recommend it to anyone that asks me about a buying a GPS, its going on Amazon for 127$ currently
