Hey there Tim! I could have sworn I responded to your question regarding the asian adventure tips. Here goes: We had a blast! It was an amazing time! It's pretty safe around there. You can get by easily. One thing I must say now is ... prepare for the HEAT! It is soooo hot and humid! I've been to hot and humid places.. but wow! Drink plenty of water (beer is mostly water right? ha) I myself took propel/gatorade type packets for the electrolytes and they came in handy. Also, I must say.. take pepto chewable tablets and some immodium AD. At one point or another, the majority of the tour got some type of tummy issue! Pack light but remember to take some type of "temple wear." You can also buy lots of t-shirts and tanks for cheap over there. Which brings me to say.. bargain, bargain, bargain!! I even managed to bargain a bucket once! I found that the cheapest place out of the tour for souvenirs is Bangkok. Laos is pretty inexpensive but not as much things to buy. I suggest you do every optional excursion! Bike tour, elephant ride, morning alms, go to the tiger kingdom, try the snake whiskey, etc! When in rome! Here are some links I found prior to the trip that were very helpful to me. They're a bit lengthy, but worth the read. http://www.contiki.com/community/discussions/13977-asian-adventure-review-part-1 http://www.contiki.com/community/discussions/2955-asian-adventure-review-part-2 http://www.contiki.com/community/discussions/44509-trip-review-contiki-asia Like I said, its pretty safe but of course be smart. Prepare for the heat, bargain, do and try everything, and have lots of fun! Tootles!

May 20 - June 2 Asia Adventure - Anyone going?

Anyone else doing the Asia Adventure Trip 5/20 - 6/2? I'll be arriving a day early on Saturday so I'll have two days to check out Bangkok. Thinking of going to the floating market, watching a Muay Thai fight an not sure what else. Any of you got plans?
