Trip to Singapore, Vietnam & Hong Kong on Qatar Airways Qsuite
It´s time again to qualify for British Airways Gold status and with this first trip to Asia flying on Qatar Airways, I will get 560 tier points. This trip is an open jaw, flying from Oslo to Singapore and back from Hong Kong to Stockholm, booking flights on Scoot, Vietjet and Jetstar to fly us within Asia. With my second trip (to Singapore in August) and my third trip (to Bangkok in December granting Qatar Airways stays with OneWorld), I will get more than 1500 tier points which is more than enough to get OneWorld emerald status again. Also during this trip, we stayed at 8 different Hilton properties making my total stay to 19, and closer to the 30 stays needed to renew my Hilton Diamond status.

Hotel Exterior & Entrance
Front Desk & Lobby
We arrived at the hotel around 2pm and was shown to the elevator by one of the concierge staff so we could do private check-in in the Executive Lounge on the 22nd floor. We were helped by a friendly associate and was assigned room 1924. The room was vacant but was still being prepared so we had to wait a bit. We were also asked a 100 SD deposit.

Exploring the Area
It was our first time staying at the Hilton Singapore after having stayed at the Conrad Singapore and Hilton Garden Inn Serangoon in the past. I was really impressed with the friendliness of the staff. The location being in Orchard Road where you have all the shops and restaurants is also a plus. There was extensive offering from the breakfast buffet as well as during the evening cocktail in the Executive Lounge. Unfortunately, the rooms are dated and the rooms in Hilton Garden Inn located in Little India are even better and much more modern. The price was also not that reasonable. If I were to stay in Singapore again and choose between the 3 Hilton properties, my first two choices would be the Conrad and Garden Inn especially since Singapore has a very effective transportation system and taking public transport is very easy.
