Trip Report Kathie and Cheryl are off on another SE Asian adventure

Jump to last reply

We fly tomorrow. We will try out two new airlines trans-Pacific: Asiana and All Nippon, and will fly Thai intra-Asia. Our first destination is Bangkok, but only for a quick overnight, before we fly to Mandalay. We will spend a few days in Mandalay, re-visiting Sagaing and visiting some Buddhist ruins in the vicinity of Kyuak Se. We will then be driven to Monywa where we board a Pandaw ship on the Chidwin River and sail north to Homalin. After our week on the Chidwin river, we will fly to Yangon for a few days before returning to Bangkok. We have a week in Bangkok - time to catch up with old friends, visit temples and eat marvelous food.

We have meet-ups with Nicky (Smeagol) in Yangon, with Hanuman and family in Bangkok and with Bob and Karen (Rhkkmk) in Bangkok. We plan to eat at all three Bangkok restaurants listed in the top 50 this year: Gaggan, which is now the top restaurant in Asia, Nahm and Bo.lan.

I will write a detailed report upon our return, particularly of our time in Burma/Myanmar, but I will add notes to this thread as I have internet access.
