Itinerary "Food" now there's a shock who would have thought ?Hong Kong - who doesn't love it? The perfect destination for a long weekend.
This trip basically came about due to the spoils of having P1 status. The special attention Qantas showers on these flyers is pretty impressive. I made P1 for the first time earlier this year, and from the get-go I've been super keen in maximising the benefits that come with it ... the #1 P1 benefit - getting premium award seats released. In the 4 months I've held P1 I've requested and been ticketed 6 x F and 16 x J long haul flights.... all at short notice or during heavy travel periods (School hols).
When I called to get these seats released - they did it on the spot 3 x J BNE-HKG-BNE. Then #1 son woke up, changed his mind and decided he also wanted to come.... I was back on the blower requesting another return flight, however they could only release the HKG-BNE in J. Fair enough, no problems I"ll just test out the #2 benefit of P1 - upgrades.
So I purchased the cheapest upgradable BNE-HKG whY ticket ($637), and submitted an upgrade request using my P1 account. Boom - right on T-7 days, the boy was sitting in J
P1 is certainly a powerful tool if you have points to burn!

Bloody awesome !!We took advantage of their stay 3 pay 2.... in our case stay 4 pay 3. We also used a TA that got us a ton of perks including an upgrade at booking.
Our suite - Grand Harbour Corner Suite, 123m2 of pure indulgence!

I was about to say the same. We were there in June and it was disgusting. Pool closed. Couldn’t go anywhere without the rain dumping down. Not a great place to be when that happens.I can't believe the fabulous weather you are having. It's so clear
Spectacular hotel @amaroo absolutely top notch and a brilliant location.After dinner we caught the star ferry back to the hotel.... another bonus for staying on Kowloon.
