Hmm...

I can use 20K FB in Y/40K FB in J+$80 to fly CI for SIN-TPE round-trip.
Or 22.5K DL in Y/35K in J+?? to fly CI for SIN-TPE round-trip.

Or SGN for free on the UA award.

Currently ticketed with 120K UA (CLE-EWR-SIN-MLE-SIN-EWR-CLE) in SQ J.
MLE hotels are all pretty booked up though already, so looking at alternatives to MLE.

Worth cancelling the SIN return to try something new? Recommendation?

I've never taken it but people don't really like that flight J is J and its a very long flight.

Maybe go to Korea and take the Korean A380 home? or you can try getting the BR lie flat to JFK or CZ A380 First via LAX.

Thinking about going to SGN, any tips?

Great city... you'll need to get a visa on arrival (need to apply in advance online then pay some more on arrival for them to stamp your passport)

I stayed in the Sheraton, but Hyatt seemed very nice...  The city is lots of fun... if you have questions I can try and answer..

I was in ICN, and it depends on what you want to do.
