Well, my spring break is coming up and a buddy and I from school want to go somewhere but we really have no idea where. We both have UA flight benefits, so we were thinking somewhere in Asia - more particularly somewhere with a NRT connection. I know UA has connecting flights to TPE, ICN, SIN, and BKK, but I was wondering where else we could connecting that is a cool place to visit?? We can get passes on UA, NW, and NH, so anywhere they go we can go (theoretically, haha).
We were thinking about OKA or maybe SPN, but we really have no idea. So, any suggestions (and reasons) would be most appreciated.

Are you more looking into visiting a city or a beach vacation ?
In the first case, I could recommend HKG; in the latter case a flight to BKK but for a beach vacation you either would have to add another flight to HKT or a 2-hour coach ride to Pattaya / Jomtien.
SIN is also a good option where you can visit a city and spend your days ont he beaches of Sentosa Island (I hope it is still around). For a longer beach vacation a ferry ride to Bintan or Batam could be another option from Singapore.

I'll second the idea of HKT, not only are you going to find alot of Europeans, you're going to be able to find really nice places to stay; Cheap. Travel from BKK to HKT by air is also very inexpensive.
