Trip Report Annual Fall Asia Trip

Jump to last reply

Our annual SEA trip begins today.

Tonight we fly from Boston to Munich on Lufthansa, using United FF miles. This connects to a Thai Airways flight to Bangkok.

After a month of packing up our house for our January move to NH, we have never been more in need of some relaxation, Karen especially.

We look forward to meeting up with Hanuman, Tong, Kathie and Cheryl, Peter and Linda, and Clive and Carolyn at various points during the trip.

Our first hotel is the Anantara Riverside (former Marriott). Their new complex next door (Avanti Hotel and mini-mall should be 95% complete, so we look forward to exploring this new venture. Following this we move to the Hyatt Erawan for a few days before heading north to Chiang Mai for 5 days at the Le Meridian. Many of you will remember that we have never liked CM so this is a last attempt to try to warm to it (3 previous attempts failed).

From CM we fly to Phuket and for the first time will not have a car there. We will use a car service to drive us to Khao Lak and our favorite beach hotel, the JW Marriott Resort and Spa where we will stay for 11 days.

We fly back to BKK from there and will spend 2 nights at the new Le Meridian Airport Golf Resort--about a 20 minute drive from the airport.

Following that we fly Qatar Air direct to Hanoi where we will spend 11 days with the HawaiianTravellers in Vietnam (Hanoi, Hoi An, and China Beach {Danang}).

Finally we fly back to BKK and spend 5 or so nights at the Renaissance on Plenochit Rd.

Our FF ticket allows us one stop-over so we have chosen to stop in Vienna for a few nights at the Renaissance Imperial Riding School Hotel where we will enjoy the Christmas markets and a chilly Vienna at a festive season. This flight gives us finally the chance to try out Eva Air with a 3:40AM flight from BKK to Vienna (UGH to the time).

Don't expect sightseeing info in Thailand as we have been there 18 times in the past. But do expect pools, ocean, and tons of food info. In VN there will be some shopping (clothing in hoi an) and more food adventures. Finally Vienna will bring XMAS Mkt. adventures, food and hopefully some world class music.

We put our Christmas tree up last Saturday so our house will feel like Christmas when we arrive home in mid-December. This will be our 38th and last year in this 100+ year old house before it meets the wrecking ball only to be replaced by a $1,350,000. mac-mansion.

LET THE FUN BEGIN...
