Conrad Tokyo is undoubtedly one of Tokyo's finest luxury hotel. Whilst the location may not necessarily be the most exciting for the leisure traveller, the unbelievable views might just make up the extra few minutes in travel time on Tokyo's ultra efficient train network.   Guests are welcomed by doormen at the ground level before being whisked on the high speed...

If there is an award for the most devalued frequent flyer programme, I reckon Malaysia Airlines would win it in a heartbeat! Many airlines' have made it 'more expensive' to redeem award travel but I have not come across one that has almost doubled the points required for every award seat. Malaysia Airlines used to have a very generous programme...
