[Flight Review] Starlux-ury: JX731 Taipei (TPE) -Singapore (SIN) Business (A350-900)

Grabbed from official site

Mustering as much energy as I could to peel myself away from the Galactic Lounge, I bounded off to my gate in anticipation of the highlight of my trip. This flight was also supposed to be the A330neo but the airline later decided to put the A350 on this route instead – yay to doors in business class!

[Trip Report] Starlux-ury

Grabbed from official site

Starlux (website) – the newish Taiwanese airline receiving rave reviews even in coach.

And honestly, its looks really good on pics. And really, the lightbulb moment came when then I found what I consider a decent enough pricing which will allow me to try Economy Class from Singapore, and their A350 Business Class back from Taipei which means experiencing the GALATIC (yes, it’s meant to be in caps) Lounge at Taoyuan Airport. YAY.

This is shaping up to be a year of random trips after all.

[Hotel Review] InHouse Hotel Heritage 薆悦酒店

Imagine my surprise when I found a hotel in Ximending which I can actually earn points from! Taipei is notorious for not having chain hotels which causes hotel membership followers like me huge dismay when it comes to maximising our nights. I last stayed at Via Hotel and Westgate and while they were nice, I always thought it would be perfect if I can earn some points at the same time too.
