Ok, I'm suffering quite serious brain-fade now.
I've been doing my resaerch for a month now but I cant decide where to go, the choices are limitless. I want to see, feel, hear and touch everything the far east has to offer. Sadly though I only have 18 days to do it in. So if I can give you some background, maybe you can help.
My wife and I are sharing our fiftieth birthdays' this year as well as our 25th wedding anniversary and we wanted to go somewhere memorable to mark the occassion.
Although Fifty we're not old fa rts (much) and are perfectly capable of keeping up with a younger mob when needs must ;o)
We like comfort, sun and sand, food and drink, tours and sightseeing, and a visit to bangkok, slurping noodles from a street vendor with a neon lit crazy metropolitan backdrop in the pouring rain a la "Blade Runner" style, has always been dream.
The trouble is I cant decide where to go other than BKK. Or for how long we should stay in BKK.
We're going in November and am aware that rain maybe a problem in some places such as Koh Samui amongst many others.
We're not well off at all and only have a budget of about 300 pounds sterling per day, so uber luxury is out of the question. However I do think that almost anywwhere in the region would be kinda do-able, if we're prepared to compromise.
So far I've flip flopped between stays in Bkk, Hua hin and Krabi.Three seven and seven days respectively.
Kuala lumpur, BKK and the Andaman islands, (3,7&7 days).
Now finally, I'm fairly sure I want to spend a week in Bkk. and ten days in Bali!!!
I know the temptation will be to say " well what ever you decide you'll have a great time" ;-)) But It would be interesting to get your more considered views, if possible.
Oh by the way we're both Thai/far east virgins, which probably goes some way to explaining my indecisiveness.
Regards, and thanks in advance,
