Trip Report SE Asia trip 2014; CAMBODIA, MYANMAR, AND THAILAND

Jump to last reply

We are a senior retired couple, ages 68 and 71. We have not traveled in Asia other than a tour to China in 2007. We left our home-western NY/Buffalo area-on January 4, 2014 and returned on April 6, 2014. We flew from Buffalo to Siem Reap and from Bangkok to Buffalo. A lot of things went well, but some things did not.

I decided to do my trip report in the form of a blog with pictures attached. On the right side of the page are the destinations and the dates. So far I have completed Cambodia. Next will be Myanmar/Burma.

Cambodia was a DIY trip.

Myanmar/Burma I used a local agency to book hotels I chose, our flights, the boat from Bagan to Mandalay, and the hot air balloon experience in Bagan. Also an overnight trip to Golden Rock and our 3 night trip to Mrauk U. Everything else was DIY.

Thailand was a DIY trip.

For part of my planning for this trip I used info from the forums-here and on Trip Advisor. Thanks to all who provided so much helpful advice and info.

I hope my blog will offer some help to future travelers as well as bringing back memories for others. I decided to include costs as this may be useful in planning a budget, etc.
