southeast asia five weeks

Jump to last reply

my husband & I are going to SE Asia for five weeks in Feb,2013. I have read many of your reports. I loved Kathie & Cheryl's trip to Burma, and want to definitely do aprox. 10 days there. I will plan the rest of the trip around that. We are in our late 50's, and like the creature comforts at night. I think Kathie's accommodations seemed great. We love to walk and have different adventures. We love history and architecture , not a big shopper or interest in textiles. We are interested in having an overall SE Asia adventure without duplicating the same types of experiences, so I definitely want to take a ride down a river in a boat to see villages, I loved the Inle Lake experience Kathie described, I definitely want to see temples, but not everywhere. I want city experiences, and laid back small spaces too.I don't want a beach holiday. I can fly from place to place, but a 3 night river cruise somewhere might be nice as well. I don't think I can handle the train environment. Also it takes too much time. I am just starting to try to set an itinerary. I am trying to decide , apart from BUrma, where else to go. Luang Prabang, Ankor, Hoe An or Hue, Bangkok or Hanoi,? If I don't want to duplicate similar things, what do you suggest.
