We just went to the fort & walked around the town which was fine. There is a trip to a Orangutan sanctuary which we wanted to do but the reviews are not that favorable on TA so we decided not to go.

Many thanks Hobbie65, yes not too keen on animal sanctuarys as such. We'll see what the ship offers nearer the time.

BTW we had a wonderful time - so much so we booked another two Clipper cruises when we got home 🙂 I worked for 6 years on cruise ships & we have also cruised on many on holiday but we absolutely loved these ships - enjoy

They will reroute them like they did over the Ukraine a few years back. Our next vacations are going west - Peru in a few weeks (Machu Picchu for the bucket list 🙂)  & Caribbean on the Star Flyer but we would still have no problems going east.

We're flying with Qatar to Phuket, not long back from Vietnam, some of the flights back to UK rerouted over China.

I really liked Qatar Airways - we used them a lot when we lived in India. We used BA/Malaysia when we went to Phucket a few months ago via Kuala Lumpur - a nice upgrade with BA & only about 20 passengers from KL to Phucket so rather enjoyable 🙂
