Planning in progress - any comments?

Jump to last reply

I finally have enough AA FF miles for a good OneWorld business class award, so I'm finally planning to go back to Asia! Can't believe it's been five whole years.

Plan A was mostly the 'stans, India and Sri Lanka, but itineraries for the 'stans work better in the spring and it put me in Japan in February. After I decided I was procrastinating because I didn't really want to do the 'stans on this trip, I moved on to Plan B. I think I've avoided bad weather, except I'll be too early for much of Europe, and holidays, except that I'll arrive in Bangkok in search of a visa for Myanmar the week of Chinese New Year. (Where is the best place in SEA - either quiet or a really great festival - to spend CNY?)

Assuming I can get the biz class award seats (I haven't called AA yet), this is the current plan:

Sep 15 2010 - fly RDU to Vancouver (via Dallas)

Sep 19 2010 - fly Vancouver to Tokyo (arr. Sep 21)

Oct 10 2010 - fly Tokyo to Seoul

Oct 21 2010 - fly Seoul to Taipei

Nov 01 2010 - fly Taipei to Hong Kong (day trip to Macau)

Nov 06 2010 - fly HK to Kathmandu

Nov 21 2010 - overland to India at Sunauli

Jan 09 2011 - fly Chennai to Colombo (this flight isn't in the award) (there are Intrepid and Imaginative Traveler tours starting Jan 9th in case I decide I need a tour for SL)

Jan 28 2011 - Fly Colombo to Bangkok (Myanmar, Thai island, Penang, Laos?)

Feb 28 2011 - Fly Bangkok to Paris (via Helsinki) (Portugal, Nice, London?)

Mar 21 2011 - Fly Paris to RDU (via JFK)

So any comments? I still have a lot of work to do on the details, especially for India, where I'll be heading for areas I didn't get to last time. Once the award is set I can change dates but not places.
