1. Surin Elephant Round-up in NE Thailand 11/21-23
2. The beaches of Phuket and environs
3. Seeing places I have never seen before
Under #3 the prime places are:
- Angkor Wat, Cambodia
- The city formerly known as Saigon
- The Mekong river between those two places (there are many river boat tours available)
- The Philippines, especially Manila and Palawan
To avoid the Christmas high season, best to leave in early November.
Does anyone know if the November full moon is a festival day in Vietnam/Cambodia as it is in Thailand?
Very early in the planning stages, ideas welcome.
