Let’s restart our Destination Friday! Each week, we’ll be sharing an awesome, under-rated, vacation destination!
This week: Le Meredian Chiang Mai Thailand
This hotel is the perfect oasis to base your exploration of Northern Thailand. It’s situated right in middle of the action and near the night bazaar. Most of all, it’s beautiful and affordable. Free night awards start at only 7,000 points! Earn 25KStarpoints by signing up for Starwood American Express
Room tip: Get upgraded to the suite! You’ll love it. SPG Platinum’s get access to the Club Lounge.
How to get there: Airport code CNX about a 5 minute taxi ride to hotel. Thai Airways (United and Star Alliance Partner) is probably your best bet in getting there. Bangkok Airways (Japan Airlines Partner) is another option. From the USA, consider Cathay Pacific (American Airlines Partner) to Hong Kong and connect to Cathay Dragon (Also American Airlines Partner.) Business Class on Cathay Pacific will run you 60K AAdvantage Miles each way.
How to book: Support us by using our Orbitz Link. Or you can sign up for the super awesome Amex Business Platinum (We’ll earn 15k points if you sign up) and use your points to book the hotel using American Express Travel.
