Marian’s South East Asian extravaganza!!

Marian recently had the privilege of escorting a group of 24 to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

Their travels took them from Bangkok to Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai in Thailand; to the beautifully chaotic city of Ho Chi Minh (still called Saigon locally); then on a wonderfully relaxing river cruise up the Mekong River in Cambodia to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. We flew back into Vietnam and headed north from Hoi An to Hue and Hanoi, finishing up with a must-do overnight boat cruise on Halong Bay.

As Marian said, “I was not sure what to expect, but all three countries fascinated me with their beauty, chaos, friendly smiles and innovations…gigantic tombs built for their emperors; the jumble of electrical wires that leave you speechless; the clever ways the Viet Kong eluded capture by creating backward facing sandals and the many miles of tunnels at Cu Chi that hid them from the enemy above; the depressingly sad killing fields of Cambodia; and the Vietnam veteran who some 40 years late still teared up when talking about the lasting effects of the Vietnam war on his people….but beyond the horrors of war are the people… kind, friendly and so willing to say ‘hello’, likely the only English word they know but are eager to use. A destination worthy of a visit!”
