Only 10 days til I head away (from New Zealand) for 7 weeks in total, almost 3 of them in Oz visiting friends and family and then its:
Singapore to KL (2 days KL)
Fly to Ho Chi Minh for 4 days
Fly to Beijing for another 4 days
Get the overnight train to Xi'an for 3 days
Onto Guilin for 2 days
Fly to Hong Kong for 3 days
Back to Singapore for 2 days (and the Singapore Grand Prix)
And down to Phuket (unmissably cheap flight with Air Asia) for 4 days and back to Auckland (via Singapore)
Any thoughts or suggestions? Flight between cities are all booked and I'm slightly worried about the reliability of some of the airlines, particularly the Chinese ones, flying with China Southern and Hong Kong Express.
Very excited and would love to hear your take on my itinerary. Hope I won't be too overwhelmed by the quick pace of the trip.
