I was confused by Jerry Haines' article "Too Much of a Good Thing Is Wonderful on a Low-Cost Airline Pass to Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia and Taiwan" (Jan. 12). Haines and his wife spent $6,300 on about four weeks in Asia. His trip was hardly low cost. Because he couldn't meet the air pass travel window, he and his wife paid almost $1,000 each (not including all taxes) for the air pass, which essentially got them extra flights to Bangkok, Thailand; Penang, Malaysia; and Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

It won't be fully open for months, but the Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi resort in Chiang Mai, Thailand, is already getting rapturous reviews. The "grand deluxe" villas with plunge pool (about $1,000 a night) are "some of the most lavish resort accommodations we have ever encountered," Andrew Harper wrote last month in his well-regarded Hideaway Report, a newsletter for high-end travelers. Introductory rates for more modest units start at $295 through Sept. 30; regular rates begin at $495.
