Dare I Say It... Itinerary

Danny has started to layout our itinerary in Cambodia: Go up to Angkor Wat as quickly as possible.

The full moon is on 11/21 and apparently walking and riding around the ruins in the moonlight is spectacular.


So, since Danny is suddenly psyched on having an itinerary here are some more ideas:

1) Go surfing in "Ream National Park" (South Cambodia). I just want to go to the beach.

2) Rent a "junk boat" and cruise around Halong Bay (Vietnam). A friend of mine did this on his Honeymoon and said it was the best day of his life. Check out the picture above.

3) Visit Hoi An. Getting out of the big cities will be welcome. Hoi An has only 120,000 residents and is a World Heritage Sight, know as being a "as a well-preserved example of a Southeast Asian trading port of the 15th to 19th centuries."

Going to Halong Bay and Hoi An will require going to Northern Vietnam, but I have heard mixed reviews about Siagon/Ho Chi Minh City. Additionally, I have heard driving in Siagon is near impossible. Check it. Funny, you don't see many helmets.

  1. Halong Bay is amazing. My friend and I did a kayak trip there with some company called Hand.....??? can't remember the rest. We stayed in huts on this little island and kayaked during the day. They cooked delicious food for us. Totally recommend it!
