    Hi all

    I'm trying to get my head around Singapore's sweet spots and was wondering what the best are from UK or Eu?
    Have about 79k in Amex to move and am tempted to move them to Kris flyer
    Also is availability pretty good?

    Thanks

    Marina Bay Sands is a must

    These are a bit out of date now, but should give you a decent starting point: https://insideflyer.co.uk/2017/04/b...es-krisflyer-redemption-sweetspots-get-miles/

    I should probably do an updated one...

    Would anyone care to explain a bit more about this?
    Making a far bit of points via amex/RTW ticket this year so would love to book a first class ticket for text year to Singapore using my points

    Basically, you can transfer Amex points to Singapore Airlines' KrisFlyer programme at 1:1 rate, which can lead to some (relatively) very good deals. The posts linked to above should give you a bit of an idea about what's possible, though the points required have increased a bit recently - new award chart here: https://www.singaporeair.com/saar5/pdf/ppsclub_krisflyer/charts/SQMI_AwardChart.pdf (it's the 'Saver' pricing on page 2 that you want to pay particular attention to)

    First Class one way between Europe and Singapore is now 125,000 miles. If you can get a cheap flight to Turkey (or use BA Avios), Business Class between Istanbul and Singapore is still a very reasonable 49,000 miles one way.
