In a short 3 months we will be departing on our long awaited trip.  I have been busy doing research and mapping out an itinerary for our trip.  Although  it is not yet refined, we have an approximate itinerary for January and February.  We will be leaving on Dec. 25 and arriving in Beijing where we will spend three days doing some sightseeing of Beijing and then we will be flying into Saigon (Ho Chi Minh) where it looks like we will participate in some New Year's eve/day activities before heading to Cambodia via the Mekong Delta and starting our Cambodia trip in Phnom Phen.  After Phnom Phen we will take a bus to Siem Reap where we will spend a week visiting Ankhor Wat and then Battambang.  We will then return to Phnom Phen and do Southern Cambodia. We are planning on returning to Saigon around  Jan 22 when we hope to take a flight to Phu Quoc island for 5 days of sun, sand and snorkeling.  Arounjd Jan 28 we will return to Saigon to do some more sight seeing and then work our way to the north of Vietnam.  Some stops will be Hoi An, Hue Danang and of course we will do a 2/3 day in Halong Bay and then Hanoi  and again a 2/4 day trip to Sapa and  a few more days in Hanoi where my sister will be returning to Canada and I will continue on.  At this time I am thinking of spending the month of March ion Laos and then the month of April in Burma.  Anyone reading this blog having already done this trip have any suggestions on lenght of time to spend at each of the above places or suggestions on sites not to miss, your favorite hotels, etc.  please e-mail me with all suggestions or comment on this blog
