We will be visiting Thailand/Cambodia and Vietnam between January 2 and April 2, 2014. Have been reading lots on tripadvisor where I've always found great info for our other trips. We want to do some touring (have already seen list of tour operators recommended on Trip Advisor and will arrange with those depending on area we are in). Also want to do about half the time (or more) on the beach - would like to rent a bungalow - preferable with a kitchen on a nice beach. We are in our mid 60s and active - no concern about walking and would like to be within walking distance of markets as well as good places to eat (love Thai food so definitely don't want to cook every day LOL but would be nice to be able to have bkfst and lunch and also cook the odd dinner). Because of length of time we will be there would like to experience different beaches - ones with sunrise views but definitely ones with sunset views. Not sure if we should stay on mainland or go to one of the islands. Any recommendations would greatly be appreciated. Will also post onThailand and Camboia sites.
