Traveling South East Asia Thursday 3 July 2008
So next week Lotte and I are off to South East Asia for three and a half weeks! Since we booked two flights in the middle of our trip, the first half of our itinerary is more or less fixed:
  • Fly to Saigon (Vietnam) + visit Saigon
  • Boat trip from Saigon to Phnom Penh (Cambodia) through the Mekong delta, watching the floating markets and life by the Mekong river in general - 3 days
  • Visit Phnom Penh (the killing fields, the golden temple - 1 or 2 days
  • Off to Angkor where we'll take all our time to explore the many, many ruins in the region. I'm so looking forward to making a few thousand pictures here :) - about 3 days
  • Fly from Angkor to Luang Prabang, the ancient capital of Laos. Visit Luang Prabang + the jungle around it and celebrating my birthday! - 3 days
  • Fly from Luang Prabang to Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand.

That leaves us 11 days to travel from Chiang Mai to Bangkok, from where we'll be flying back to Belgium. If we're not tired of temples by then we'll visit the old Thai capitals of Sukhothai and Ayuthaya along the way, and we'll also try to visit a nature reserve.

As usual I'll occasionally post something here to keep the homefront up to date. We'll be back August 5th.
