Help planning a trip

Jump to last reply

Hi! I came across this wonderful and helpful forum and thought you could help me improve my (draft) itinerary for this trip...It is a family trip (me, my wife and 4 young-adult children); going to Southeast Asia for the first time in July, and yes, I know it's rainy and monsoon season, but that doesn't discourage me as long as it won't ruin all our plans.
We have around 24 days to spend (not including flights to SE Asia and back home), and when it comes to which activities and tours we want to do, we'd like to include a little bit of everything: sightseeing, historical places, museums, shopping, free time, beaches. Right now, this is what we thought on doing (days = full days and nights):
Hong Kong 3 days
Singapore 1 day (as a gateway to Bali, cheaper airfare)
Bali 4 days
Phuket 3 days
Chiang Mai 3 days
Bangkok 4 days
Hanoi 3/4 days (including day-trip to Halong Bay)
Ho Chi Minh 3 days
I know this might look like a hectic schedule, but that's just how we all are in my family. We like to engage in many activities all the time and don't mind having to do things at a real fast pace. However, my main concern is: do you think we can do this? I mean, get to know each of these places and enjoy the trip spending that amount of days in each of them? I'm more than willing to make some changes if you think this is a crazy itinerary, so I'll be waiting for your suggestions and advices!
Thanks a lot!
Skol.
