For three weeks, we had the wonderful opportunity to visit Southeast Asia, specifically Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, and Cambodia. These countries are considered part of Indochina. We began our trip by flying from Houston to Singapore via San Francisco and Taipei, Taiwan. After visiting in Singapore, we flew to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) in Vietnam. While there, we did day trips to Cu Chi, the Cao Dai temple, and the Mekon Delta area.
Next, we flew to Hanoi, and after touring the city, we did a five day motorcycle trip through the mountains of north Vietnam. This was a loop roughly northwest out of Hanoi, about 500 miles, and without question was the highpoint of our entire vacation. Upon returning to Hanoi, we did an overnight trip to Halong Bay to see first hand the incredible rock formations that abound there.
Next was a flight to Bangkok, Thailand and a couple of days of sightseeing in that city. From Bangkok we flew to Siem Reap, Cambodia to visit the Angkor Wat temple complex.
It is hard to describe this trip, but a few words that come to mind are: Fantastic, sensational, enlightening, inspiring, terrific, and “when can we do it again”.
