I have officially died and gone to resort heaven. Last week we checked into the Intercontinental Da Nang Sun Peninsula Resort, considered by many to be one of the best resorts in the world, for two nights. I woke up the first morning feeling more refreshed than I have in months, walked out onto a balcony that’s larger than most of the rooms I’ve slept in in the last year and stared out at one of the most beautiful views in the entire world. One night here costs as much as two months rent at the homestay we were living at in Hoi An.
A travel hacker’s best weapon is their credit card arsenal. Contrary to popular belief, not all credit cards are bad. Sure, some are, but if you know which ones to sign up for they can be of great benefit to your travels. Credit cards have helped me fly to Asia to begin this trip, fly my first business class flight, get free hotel rooms, get me into swanky airport lounges, and have plenty of more free travel lined up for the rest of 2016 and 2017.
I love credit cards. When I tell people this I usually get strange looks like I’m crazy and whatever I tell them after is dismissed because of their preconceived notions surrounding these divisive pieces of plastic ( or metal in some cases! ).
