2 months in SE Asia - here's how it looks so far

Jump to last reply

Thanks to all the great trip reports here, we've pretty well nailed down our 2 month (Jan/Feb) trip to SEA. I know, I know we're covering a lot of ground, but we may not pass this way again .. and had miles to use etc

Itin looks like this:

12/31 to 1/4 Singapore at Intercontinental Hotel (thanks, Bob). Many will say a long time for Sing, but husband worked there years ago and wants to spend a bit of time revisiting it (and this is my first Asia trip).

1/4 - 1/7 Bali beach - at Puri Santrian in Sanur
1/7- 1/11 Bali Ubud - at Alam Shanti
(included in above time is one day with the famous Putu)
1/11 - 1/15 - Java - at Ijen resort (we'll take ferry from Bali) and then Java Banana near Bromo (naturally this piece is dependent on volcano conditions etc but those NY times articles posted here just looked too appealing for us nature lovers to forego)
1/15 - 1/18 - Yogyakarata (depending . .) reservation at Phoenix Hotel
1/18 - Fly Yogy to Kuala Lumpur on Air Asia Hotel TBD
1/19 - Fly KL to Kota Kinabalu on Air Asia Hotel TBD
1/20 - Leave KK on MASwings for Lahad Datu
1/20-1/24 - Borneo Rainforest Ldoge
1/24- Lahad Datu to KK
1/25 - KK to KL to Phnom Penh
1/25 - 1/28 PP at Pavillion Hotel
1/28 - 2/1 - Siem Reap at Seven Candles Guest House
(included here a couple days touring with famour Ponheary)
2/1- fly Lao Air to Vientiane
2/1 - 2/4 Vientiane at Souphaphone Guest House
2/4 - Fly Lao Air to Luang Prabang
2/4-2/8 LP at Lotus Villas
2/8 - fly to Hanoi (probably at Hanoi Imperial Hotel
2/11 - Livitrans train to Sapa
2/11 - 2/14 Sapa
More hanoi
2/16 - halong bay on Dragon Pearl junk one night
Back to Hanoi
2/18 - fly to Hue
2/18-2/20 Hue at Villa Hue
2/20 driver to Hoi An - over pass etc.
2/20 -2/24 Hoi An at HaAn Hotel
2/24 - flight to Hanoi
2/24 - 2/27 more Hanoi
2/27 - fly to Hong Kong
2/27 - 3/3 Hong Kong
3/3 - fly HK to US

We've arranged most everything so far ourselves, but have received a proposed itin from Tonkin Travel for the Viet Nam piece. Will probably accept most of their proposals,
except may dump a couple city tours that we would probably rather do on our own - plus we like the idea of contacting the hanoi and danang kids. As an esl teacher, that kind of experience is right up my alley. . . .

We'll be in Hoi- An (I mistakenly said Hanoi in another post) on my birthday, so will need great restaurant for dinner. I've just been rereading great trips reports from Bob
and djunbug now that departure time is drawing near. Sounds like maybe Secret Garden or Morning Glory.

We're really looking forward to this trip. Any/all further suggestions welcome!
But, really, thanks Fodors people for all your help!
