Jan-March: TH, HK, JP?

Jump to last reply

I find myself planning three months' travel in Asia at rather short notice. First step is to block in the "big picture," secure award flights, and then start on the within-country details.

With squishy dates (depending on when I can snag flights to/from the US)

1. ...beginning of January: fly US to Thailand (airport depends on award availability/rules)

2. spend 6-7ish weeks in Thailand, Laos and Cambodia: perhaps start in Bangkok, then to the north CM/CR, then loop clockwise back down to BKK?)

3. latter part of February: fly Thailand to Hong Kong (5-7 days in HK & surrounding territories)

4. end of February: fly Hong Kong to Japan (again, airport depends on award availability/rules). 4-5 weeks to explore Japan

5. end of March/beginning of April: Japan back to the US.

I'm a slow traveler. :-)

Does this sound like a decent framework? A lot will depend on award availability and rules, of course, but I need a starting place for working on flights.

Is there somewhere else I should explore? A colleague suggested trying to work in a quick stop in Seoul between HK and JP just to get a taste of Korea.

Once I have the framework/flights, I"ll post more specific questions about local trip logistics in the appropriate country forums. Meanwhile, I am reading like crazy!

I'm a solo, middle-aged, mid-budget traveler. It has been more than a decade since I was last in Asia, and I am greatly looking forward to it!

Thank you!
