Do you use your marriott points in South East Asia or just pay w $ because its so cheap?

I always use points- they’re usually pretty low categories for 5 star hotels. You’re also almost always guaranteed a suite upgrade if you have status.

Not all of SE Asia is cheap. But if it’s 50000 points vs. $129 then you know what to do.

Just do the math but I’m torn as well
