Nov/Dec Asia Trip

Jump to last reply

Hello I’m planning a trip to Asia and would like some feedback. I have already booked my main flight. I will leave IAH on Wed Nov 27th @ 8pm (8hr layover in Istanbul) arrive in PEK Fri Nov 29th @ 4pm then my return flight is leave BKK @ 11am Saturday Dec 14th (20 hr layover in Istanbul) arrive IAH Sun 15th @ 6pm. I will have a total of 14 days to plan for. I know it will be winter in Beijing and really cold but I picked this time bc it gave me 2 extra days off work. I’m 25, female, and traveling alone. I like to hop around when I travel because it is rare that I actually get to go. I went to Europe and did 5 places in 2 weeks and was very happy with it. I know travel in Asia is different but this is what I’ve come up with so far. I’ll have 3 days in each place and on flight days an added half day depending on when I leave. It might seem like I’m crossing things off a list and I kind of am. I’ve thought about this trip and that’s what really sticks out to me so I want to make sure I get to do those things. I’m trying to do this on budget with hostels but am flying btw places to save time.
Nov 29th-Arrive in PEK, late so mainly hostel and dinner
Nov 30-Dec 2(3 Days) Main sites like Forbidden City and Temple of Heaven, day trip tour (with hostel) to the great wall, 3rd day anything I missed the other days and just wonder the city (souvenir shopping) would also like to see an opera or acrobatics show
Dec 3rd (Day trip to Xi’an)-Catch night train on 2nd to Xi’an to see the Terra Cotta warriors and spend the rest of the day around the city then night train or flight somewhere else. $50 Sleeper Train
Dec 4-6- (2 or 2.5 days somewhere else?) Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur??
Dec 6-Fly to Siem Reap. $300
Dec 7-9(3 Days) Siem Reap Angkor Wat around town, Aspera show one night
Dec 10-Fly to Bangkok $200
Dec 11-13(3 Days) Bangkok sites
Dec 14th-Go to airport
During my layovers in Istanbul I plan on seeing some sites, Blue Mosque and others and shopping. But I will post about that in the other forum.
Any thoughts? Should I not try to add another place after Xi’an? I thought Shanghai bc my flight would connect there anyway and if I took a night train I could spend days in the city then fly out for only $10-20 more( or cost of night at a hostel). Thanks for any advice or input!
