would anyone be interested in joining us on 11/5/2014 in Bangkok for a tour of Ayutthaya, or perhaps just sites closer to the heart of Bangkok?
We're taking "Journey Into the Heart of Asia" tour that departs the USA on 11/4/2014 and begins in Bangkok on 11/6. My wife and I are touring Japan on our own for a week before flying to Bangkok on our own and we arrive in Bangkok on Nov 4. We explored www.toursbylocals.com and found one day tours of Bangkok and the surrounding area that look interesting, and that charge the same price for 4 people that they charge for 2.
Please let me know if you might be interested in getting to know one another before starting the RoadScholar tour by splitting the cost of a one day tour on Nov 5.
Randy Ratner Oct 11, 2014 at 07:17 AM

Dan, glad you are going on this trip. Judi and I went on this trip in March of this year.
Daniel Cope Oct 11, 2014 at 03:04 PM

Randy, we wanted to join you on that earlier trip! Any tips you can offer, now that you're a vetran of this adventure? Any suggestions for how best to spend an extra 1.5 days in Bangkok, ahead of the tour?
Randy Ratner Oct 11, 2014 at 06:45 PM

Dan, I sent an email to you

Hello, I am taking this tour January, 2015. Can anyone provide a suggested packing list? What kind of clothes should I bring. What about shoes?
Irma Honda Sep 03, 2014 at 01:20 PM

I went in January of this year; weather was pleasantly warm, not too hot(except for Bangkok) a light sweater or shawl useful, especially on Halong Bay; no need for dressy clothes. Our tour leader took us to local places to have laundry done very cheaply (by weight rather than by piece). As for shoes, whatever you are most comfortable walking in, keeping in mind that shoes must be removed when visiting temples.
Shelley Molnar Sep 04, 2014 at 12:58 AM

We went in feb of 2012. We had very hot days in Thailand, Laos and Cambodia, and cool rainy days in Hanoi. The travel advice to dress in layers

Continuation from above post. This message board is NOT user friendly! which is probably why it isn't as helpful as the OAT message board. Anyway, I brought 2 long, colorful skirts because they are comfortably cool, and always look clean, plus they compress easily.
Shelley Molnar Sep 04, 2014 at 01:02 AM

One pair of sneakers and one pair of sandals did the trick for me. No one dresses up, we all wear the same things over and over, and the laundry service is indeed cheap and fast


Maria Gladd Jul 15, 2014 at 03:35 AM

I am on the Oct. 28 departure from LA. Like to hear from others who are enrolled for the same departure date.


Randy Ratner Feb 06, 2014 at 10:47 PM

Judi and I are very much looking forward to this trip, which is our third in 18 months with Road Scholar.


Denny Briley Feb 06, 2014 at 11:13 AM

Really looking forward to this trip. If we left KC today we would have a 100 degree temperature change when we arrive in Bangkok. -10F to 90F WOW!


Denny Briley Feb 04, 2014 at 02:19 PM

Hello Everyone, the Brileys and the Princes will be traveling to Bangkok via Tokyo departing from Denver. Anyone else on those flights?
Judi Ratner Feb 04, 2014 at 02:44 PM

Randy and I depart from DFW on Feb 11th and fly directly to Tokyo, connecting on LAN and getting into Bangkok very late on the 11th and will be at the hotel already on the 12th.
Randy Ratner Feb 08, 2014 at 04:22 PM

Japan Air- not LAN


Marcia Landry Feb 02, 2014 at 06:24 AM

Hi - I'm Marcia Landry from Ft. Collins, Colo. But now I'm in Phnom Penh visiting my daughter who works in Cambodia with USAID. I am really looking forward to meeting you all next week! I traveled in Asia in 1984, but did not go to the countries we'll be visiting with RS. I'm an avid quilter and fabric junkie.
Denny Briley Feb 04, 2014 at 02:16 PM

Since you are already in the neighborhood, can you give us any tips on what to pack as far as clothing. Should we bring slacks, capris, or skirts? I hope we can find some fabric while we are on the trip also. Judy Briley


Lucy Nurkse Jan 27, 2014 at 09:20 AM

Hi I am Lucy Nurkse. I am leaving from JFK. Is there any one else on Cathay Pacific? I am looking forward to meeting everyone.
Diane Gardner Jan 27, 2014 at 05:06 PM

Dick and I are on Cathay Pacific seats 42 A & B
Diane Gardner Jan 27, 2014 at 05:43 PM

oops change that to seats 61 A & B. Might be a surprise for the people in row 42
Rose Cohen-Brown Jan 28, 2014 at 06:50 PM

I'm on Cathay Pacific out of Los Angeles at 10:20 pm. Seat 41A. Diane, we'll have to talk about Minneapolis. It's my hometown.
