Bali and Hong Kong- CX First Class & Biz Class. Both Bali Four Seasons, W and Conrad!

Hello everyone! Love looking at everyones trip reports. I wanted to add my Bali and Hong Kong 2 week adventure to the mix!


Loved Bali! Loved the people and culture!



Hong Kong had a ton of energy and eventually the heat and people wore us out!



We had a great time and this Trip Report forum played a big part of inspiring me to take this trip!

Forgive the external link but I have a ton of pictures on my site!
Thanks for looking and let me know if you have any questions!

Great TR thanks for sharing!!

Interesting that AA only charge $86 for that...I have BA miles and am looking at doing First class from SFO to Hong Kong and its well over $100 per person in taxes!!

Cheers

Great report, really enjoyed it.

I'm about two months away from my first Cathay First experience and I'm very much excited for it!

Mine (just LAX-HKG) was a mere $2.50 and a $25 phone booking fee. AA doesn't charge anything for the majority of their awards (including all awards on AA metal) - just taxes.

Got my first CX F to HKG from JFK on Monday and really looking forward to it

Do think they need to alter the menu a bit more as a lot of the items on it seem to have been there all year based on various reports.

nice

Totally awesome trip report. thanks.

i will visit Hong Kong next year on route to Bali too although via BKK.

still unsure on properties although i was there in 2013 for 4 weeks so have a few favourites.

Ubud is a wonderful place and i really warmed to Jimbaren at the IC.

thanks once again.

great first part of your TR, what a pain the gentleman was to speak rather rudely to you about the window blind, as you said there are eyeshades he could have put on He is obviously doing a DYKWIA stunt. Food looked good, will definitely have to try CX one day. Looking forward to next part of the TR

Thanks!! I have heard mixed reports on if the window shade should be closed or not. If it were me trying to sleep i would have just put on the eyeshades but we are all different.

Strange, thanks for letting me know! I clicked in part 3 and got an error but the tried again and it worked. I also tried going to part 4 then hit the previous link to take me back to part3 and that worked. I will try to get it sorted later today.

That is working for me currently on my cell/mobile currently.

Nice tr. the humidity is something that is killer. Takes getting used to. I have been 8 times,in the last three years and it still kills me. The Conrad needs some work IMO. A five star hotel ImO should always have the hair dryer in a bag and in a drawer when not in use.

@MKJR, Yes it was killer!!! It made us want to stay inside. I never felt such humid conditions. Especially wearing full clothing on top of the humidity!


FYI to all- if you had issues with part 3 it is corrected now. The link works at this time. (let me know if anyone has issues with any links)
