    Thrilled to be LoS-Bound (Finally)!

    I am leaving on Monday night and I can't wait to be back in SE Asia.

    It's been an insane year - I had a trip earlier this year cancelled when a family member was hit with leukemia (they just went through their fourth round of chemo and are - for the moment - cancer free, which is amazing), and last year I planned to visit but it was cancelled at the last minute.

    So 2012 was my last trip, and it's been too long. I'll be in BKK from the 14th to the 17th, HCMC Vietnam for almost a week, and then I have about five days free I am trying to figure out what to do with (I have to be back in HCMC on the 28th). I was debating between Siem Reap and Chiang Mai, both places I haven't been. I'm an avid photographer and love to explore, and both of those places have heaps to offer on those fronts. Curious about Patts as well, so plenty of options.

    Anyway, I'll sort out that gap time (leaning towards CM) and will look forward to coming back to LoS! Although I'm relatively new here on TD, if we're in the same place at the same time, I'd love to grab a beer with any BM's. I'm staying on Suk 8 while in BKK.

    Cheers!

    Thanks, SE. That's what I've heard about CM. Been to LoS on four occasions, never got up north. Looking forward to it, for sure.

    As for HCMC, first time for that, too, so it's a trip of firsts.

    Ha! Didn't think about that line when I wrote it...should have!

    I've read and heard so much about it, would just like to see it so I have a frame of reference. I know people who love it and people who hate it, but I'd love to decide for myself. Not a big p4p guy, so that doesn't really play in (although I've never met a massage I didn't like in LoS).

    Enjoy your trip. Looking forward to reading about Vietnam.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    Dont go to Chiang mai you will get hooked and return several times a year. CM is addictive especially if you ride motor bikes or take photos.

    Have a great trip
