Asia 2015: Lounges

Given I am fortunate enough to have Star Alliance Gold having reached over 50k status miles flown on Air Canada last year, during our trip we have our choices of lounges.  If you’re in a similar situation, here are a few links to lounges by airport.

Note that I’ve not included United lounges which are available at Narita and Hong Kong International.  Why would I go to a United lounge when I can try ANA, Thai or Singapore?


Travelling from Toronto to Narita, we’ll have access to the International Maple Leaf Lounge.


Traveling from Japan to South Korea, there really is only one option.  The ANA Business Lounge.  This article talks about lounges at NRT including the United lounge.


We have our choices of the Asiana Business Class Lounge or the Singapore SilverKris Lounge.  I have heard amazing things about Singapore, and I have heard very good things about the Asiana lounge.  I think we’ll have a chance to try both given we do get to spend a lot of time at Incheon.  This article talks about the lounges at ICN.

Hong Kong

Choices, choices.  Do we go for Singapore, or do we try Thai Royal Orchid?  Sadly we get to the airport early, around 6am and then we leave at 8am.  I have to admit, I’m leaning towards Singapore, but really want to experience Thai’s offering as well.  Nothing stops us from trying both.  This article talks about both lounges, as well as the United lounge in Hong Kong.


From Incheon to Vancouver, we’ll get back to enjoy the trusty Domestic Maple Leaf Lounge in which Scott and I have spent much time waiting for flights home to Toronto.

We have our options.  I’m excited to try something new
