“Out of the blue” we bought a Cudo 5 night stay at Outrigger Koh Samui – wonderful idea, but now, how do we make it all work for us ?
Timing is important and September 2011 looks OK.
We are pensioners in our 70’s on a strict budget; I have been to Asia and Bangkok (in 1976 on visit to several countries which helped to re-start Australian-China trade which was closed for so long – I was a manager of a large trading house at the time); my wife has not been outside Australia so this planned venture is important for getting it right !
Our idea is to make the most of our adventure and see as much as we can on a budget; River Kwai and an elephant ride; with experience of culture would be great; my wife loves crafts and to shop of course !
We have thought that we could start from Sydney say 9 or 10 September and stopover in Thailand en route to Koh Samui; we are very open to suggestions please ?
We are interested in travel and I commenced a small tour business last year in Outback NSW – take a look at our opal website:
Our website is a little of what we are about and began thru helping others in need a couple of years ago.
