Trying to find routing via Tokyo or Hong Kong on the way back. That way you can avoid getting a visa.

Best thing to do is pair with an Avios booking to HKG or TYO, unless you can find a cheap paid fare to either place. You can have 72hrs on either side.

It is a 5 day minimum stay.

P.s. Certain days you can route out of BWI via MIA, LAX and return LAX, MCO, JFK, to squeeze the miles.
