Pacific Delight Tours

Jump to last reply

I just returned from three weeks in Asia: Siem Reap, Cambodia and various cities in China on a Pacific Delights Tour. I'm not going to do a full trip report, but I will be more than happy to answer any questions for anyone who might be interested.

The tour company did a quite excellent job, although I would add a few things, and that's what I will mention here.

The hotels were all 5 Star hotels.....Ritz Carlton and Shangri-La with superb Asian service - so no complaints there at all. The hotels were great.

The food - especially in China was fabulous everywhere. We ate in local joints and lovely restaurants and it was just wonderful everywhere.

For anyone going, these are my couple of suggestions:

More time in Shanghai. We only had three days - including time to and from the airport - and that is not enough. Shanghai is beautiful and vibrant and I am really sorry that we had to miss several areas. The food there was the best of all.

Siem Reap. Definitely go to the Museum! Maybe go there first - and then go again when you have visited the temples. The admission is $12, but the hotels have tickets for $8. Also, be sure to go to the Lake and see the villages on stilts.....and also ask someone to drive you around for a couple of hours so that you can really see how the people live. What lovely people, but so very poor and uneducated.

Hong Kong: Definitely take the Tram to the Buddha. The Buddha is good - but the tram is fantastic!!!!!!

OK That's all that comes to mind this minute. Have fun!
