Currently looking at DIY Bangkok - Finding somewhere nice to use as a base and spending 7/8 days exploring, then maybe a river cruise. (Did one before on the Nile and loved it) Mekong river looks good, would mean flying into Siem Reap and then either home or back to Bangkok from Ho Chi Minh City.

Tom are you passing through Siem Reap or stopping off for a few days? I suggest you stop and do a guided tour of the Angkor Wat, it's incredible. Siem Reap incidentally translates to defeat Siam.


Yes Kev.

Rough plan is to fly into Bangkok, book an inexpensive hotel with a pool to use as a base while we spend about 5/6 days exploring, then fly to Seam Reep for the Angkor Wat tour and then on a river boat for 10 days finishing in Ho Chi Minh City with an excursion per day built in. Then a couple of days in HCMC, fly back to Bangkok and home from there.

Only about 18 passengers on the boat so should be quite nice. Apparently the cabins are a bit small but obv that wont bother us and I hear the food is fantastic.
Haven't got it all sussed yet though so not counting my chickens.

Sounds awesome Tom. Will one of your stops be Phnom Penh ? S21 in the city and the killing fields about 18 miles out, harrowing but a must if you have the time. Hard to think these atrocities happened in our lifetime.

Yes, I think we have 2 days in Phnom Penh if all goes well.

The first series of Travels With My Father on Netflix might be of interest to you, Tom, as it includes a few of these countries, including Cambodia.

It's a funny watch anyway, assuming you don't mind Jack Whitehall, but it might provide some insight for your trip.

His Dad is the real star of the series, along with Winston.

This boat trip sounds just right.   I went through the Mekong Delta by bus, and did a boat trip there.  A boat trip the whole way sounds great, and I wouldn't fancy some big boat as you wouldn't get close to stuff.   I have never been to Ankor Wat, but if I had a bucket list, it would be there.  Shame you can't go all the way from Laos, but I read the river goes North from there, so.ig just isn't possible.  Maybe it needs two trips.

The whole trip sounds good, just try and avoid the really wet season in Bangkok, as the flooding can get really bad.

Most of the bets placed so far seem more like hopeful punts rather than value spots

Sigh...

It's a good job I'm not in charge of anything important.
