Thailand and Vietnam - February 2017

Jump to last reply

Got a month in Malta [November] to enjoy first, but our next trip to Thailand and Vietnam in February is coming along nicely.

Flights with Emirates from Gatwick to/from Bangkok booked, as are flights from Bangkok to/from Hanoi with NOK Air.

Itinerary [all times local]...

2 Feb - Fly Emirates from LGW @ 1335. Arrive Dubai 0035.

3 Feb - Fly Emirates from Dubai @ 0330. Arrive Bangkok 1235.

3 to 5 Feb [3 nights] - Bangkok [New Siam Palace View]. The hotel is close to the Chao Phraya in Bangalamphu, within walking distance all the major sights in that area.

6 Feb - Taxi to Thonburi train station to catch the 0745 train to Kanchanaburi. Great little journey in a 3rd Class only train.

6 Feb - Arrive Kanchanaburi @ 1030. We've been to Kanchanaburi before, and visited all the major WWII memorials and museums. But it's such a scenically beautiful and atmospheric part of Thailand that we're looking forward again to visiting at our own pace.

6 to 8 Feb [3 nights] - Kanchanaburi [Sky Resort].

9 Feb - Train back to Bangkok. Stay overnight [New Siam Riverside]. We've stayed here before, it's in Banglamphu on Phra Athit, and sits next to the Chao Phraya v.close to Pier 13. Outdoor swimming pool, stonking buffet breakfast, at a fraction of the cost of the big hotels close to Central Pier.

10 Feb - Fly NOK Air to Hanoi @ 1820. Arrive Hanoi @ 2005. We've got 5 nights in Hanoi, and then another 4 before we return to Bangkok on 24 February. We're not bothered about following the tourist masses to Sapa or Halong Bay. We just want to enjoy Hanoi, enjoy the sights, get lost in the maze of streets,people watch, and sup lots of fresh bia hoi. We'll probably take a couple of day trips, but will wait until we get there before organising.

10 to 14 Feb [5 nights] - Hanoi 3B Homestay in Hanoi Old Quarter.

15 Feb - Fly Vietjet to Quy Nhon

15 to 19 Feb [5 nights] - Quy Nhon [accom tbc]. Quy Nhon is one of the lesser visited coastal towns.

20 Feb - Fly Vietjet to Hanoi.

20 to 23 Feb [4 nights] - Hanoi [accom tbc].

24 Feb - Fly NOK Air to Bangkok @ 0905. Arrive Bangkok @ 1055.

24 to 26 Feb [3 nights] -Bangkok [probably New Siam Riverside]. Might take the train to Ayutthaya and stay overnight.

27 Feb - Fly Emirates from Bangkok @ 2035. Arrive Dubai @ 0050

28 Feb - Fly Emirates from Dubai @ 0250. Arrive LGW @ 0640
