SEA Series Part 3: Pha That Luang & Xieng Khuan Buddha Park

This post is part of a series on my 16-day Mainland South East Asian trip with college buddies across Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia and Vietnam.

I have been looking forward to a trip with my college best friends since we graduated in 2005. Hence I was so elated when two of them were able to join me. It was like college once again, minus the Departmental Exams. 🙂

And yes, tapos na Part 2 ng CIPS exams ko kaya pwede na ko magblog ulit, i have my life back! LOL

Jet

BAH-BOM-BKK via Jet Airways

Yes, Ako na ang adik. Marso pa lang ay may tickets na ko for this trip. Palagay ko’y may hang over pako sa lagalag namin nung Dec 2012 (Boracay-Singapore-Malaysia-HongKong-Macau) kaya wari’y di ako mapalagay hangga’t wala kong nabu book na next trip / vacation destination. :p

My air tickets had different sectors though this time. Instead of the usual Bahrain- Dubai/Abu Dhabi-Manila (BAH-DXB/AUH-MNL) route, I booked Bahrain-Mumbai (Bombay)-Bangkok (BAH-BOM-BKK) via Jet Airways. Bukod kasi sa promo fare, e maglalagalag muna kami sa very popular na Indochina route + Thailand + Myanmar. 🙂

Indochina+Myanmar 2013

Oh well, nagwagi na naman ang wanderlust, hehehe.

Tickets booked for my next home leave, July 11 – Aug 11, 2013, however with an exciting twist.
Instead of the usual BAH-AUH-MNL route, this time I’m going via BOM-BKK.
And this was done on purpose.

Indochina+Myanmar, here I come! 🙂
