Draft itinerary for a whirlwind trip. Your thoughts?

Jump to last reply

We have put together a very tentative broad itinerary for our travel in Asia this northern-hemisphere summer, coming from New Zealand before heading back to the U.S. after our year abroad. It will involve a lot of travel, which we understand, but our goal is that this will be an "overview trip." Nearly each of these places would benefit from more time (but really, where wouldn't? A traveler's bane!)

We are planning to spend at least 3 days/2 nights in nearly every place to allow us to settle in a bit before heading off to our next stop. We have a few other days to allow for rest stops but haven't figured out where to put them; that will come once we have travel booked to know when the most exhausting trips will be!

And advice on how to put these pieces together? The only piece that's booked is the flight from Hong Kong to SFO on our last night. It departs at 22:30, so we have most of that day in Hong Kong.

Indonesia (7 days)
-Bali, 4 days
-Sulawasi 3 days (diving)
Ankor Wat (4 days)
Vietnam (10+ days)
-Hanoi, including overnight in Ha Long Bay, 5 days
-Hue 3 days
-Hoi An 2-3 days
-HCMC/Saigon (?)
China (9 days)
-Beijing, 4 days
-Shangai, 3 days
-Xian, 2 days (sleeper train there and back)
Hong Kong (3 days)
Japan (10 days)
-Tokyo, 4 days
-Kyoto, 4 days
-something more rural and atmospheric, possibly near Mt. Fuji or Koya-san, 2 days
