Having missed out seeing Bangkok during Christmas 2008, due to the political unrest there, I decided to go and visit some family in SE-Asia and visit Thailand again. 

I was expeting a good last minute deal, so was searching extensively over the Christmas holiday, but nothing really came up in the price range I was expected.  I was after something around £700-800 for a 10 night stay.  Anyway, I tried with my Amex Staff Travel office, and they also couldn't really deal with the requirements I laid out.  I think the problems with Travel Agencies (Amex Staff Travel included) is that they just offer a basic set-up, anything slightly outside or bespoke, they can't deal with!  Grrr!  So I ended up doing an A la Carte offering.

I wanted to go at the end of February or early-March.  There was a 50% January Sale offer at the Hilton, so wanted to stay either in the Bangkok Hilton or the Hua Hin resort for part / all of the stay.  Flights were okay, with Thai Airlines proving the cheapest.  We also found details of the hotel in Bangkok recommended by my counsin and noted that they also had a price-promotion on...another 50% offer!  Looking good already hey?  We tried - and through their sales desk they managed to sort out the flights and the Bangkok part of the trip.  I then phoned Hilton Honors Reservations (to take advantage of my VIP Loyalty status) and booked the stay at Hua Hin resort.  I managed to break up the booking into 3 parts to spread over the 2 weekends - thus was able to take advantage of the 50% offer on 2 sets of 3 days.  Very nice indeed.  To top this offer, I managed to then use my Hilton Honur points for the 4 other days in between, so the Hilton part of the stay was extremely cheap.  We literally paid the quivalent 3 full nights for the whole 10 days stay!  Luvly indeed!  AND I should hopefully get an Executive Lounge upgrade by being a Hilton Honors VIP Loyalty member.  The hotel / resort looks pretty nice too!  Bonus!
