Flying into Singapore to begin blank slate 2 month trip

Jump to last reply

Well, I've got to start asking questions about SE Asia coming up at end of year. Came on here a few weeks back and just got mightily distracted reading all the great writing and repartee here on the Asia board. Death on the Ganges, Gpanda's recuperation, and the Boston GTG are just too interesting.

Husband and I are 60ish - not quite sure how THAT happened - and have taken to two-month trips in Jan/Feb to escape gray DC winters (sure turned out to be a good decision this year!). We've been doing a lot of Costa Rica, Panama, and Mexico in years past. H really loved the little he saw of Asia 20 years ago - Singapore, Bali, Jakarta - oh yeah and Vietnam 30 years ago under less than ideal circumstances.

So we're using some miles and flying to Singapore at end of December. Plan on coming back March 1. In between is a big blank slate. H wants to show me Sing, Bali etc. and both of us want to see Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos. . . etc. etc. etc. Realize distances involved, but we do have a fair amount of time. .. .

We like nature (esp birds/hiking), good food, markets, art/culture. Plan to hunker down STARTING NOW and read threads BESIDES the ones mentioned earlier for ideas - but
am definitely open to any suggestions anyone is willing to send my way.

Thanks. . .
