Have plan for first SE trip. What do you think?

Jump to last reply

SE Asia has topped our travel destination wish list ever since we went to India five years ago. But it just didn't happen. Conferences in Zielona Gora, Rio, and Florence, and a wedding in Derby, displaced SE Asia. Today I finally booked our tickets in and out of Bangkok, arriving 9 January. Before I commit to internal air and hotels, I'd very much appreciate suggestions from the experienced SE Asia travellers.

Here's what I'm thinking (we are not shoppers but we are eaters!):

1 night at airport hotel in BKK before flight to Siem Reap
4 nights in Siem Reap
3 nights in Luang Prabang
4 nights in Hanoi (no Halong Bay)
3 nights in Hue
2 nights in Hoi An
3 nights in HCMC
4 nights in BKK

We don't want beaches or treks to hill tribes so I'm limiting Thailand. Is that a bad idea? We don't have a particular interest in Vietnam but it fits in well.

Suggestions most welcome, Thanks!
