   Our itinerary left from Hong Kong (Wonderful City) to Sanya, China then to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Bangkok, Thailand and finally to Singapore.  As we docked in Sanya, we were greeted by Chinese Soldiers dressed in Riot gear - A show of force that was certainly unnecessary to protect a town with very little to offer. 

   Saigon was a very interesting city with a fascinating culture and interesting temples.  Since automobiles have a 200% duty on them which increases the price beyond the affordability of most natives, one will marvel at the sheer number of scooters that travel the streets with overloaded contents.  Families of 5 persons or 5-foot (1.7 meter) stacks of goods are not unusual to find on one scooter.

   Bangkok was an incredible city with intricate temples that awed the senses.  Nightlife was reported to be fantastic but it is the architecture that will change one's perception of the area.

   Being only 1 degree above the equator, Singapore suffers from a hot climate and no wind.  None-the-less, it is a clean modern city with excellent transportation and the world's highest-rated airport.  Most places are air-conditioned and very friendly.

   Voyager of the Seas is a good ship for about a 7-night cruise.  Any longer and the ship starts to get very small.  I recommend the Promenade Cafe for great sandwiches and wonderful pizza.  It was a welcome find after enduring the crowds at the Windjammer cafe on a daily basis.

Excellent floor to ceiling picture window that slants outward. No other rooms can be seen from either side and no other rooms exist on top or below - so very private. Jogging track is directly outside the hall door which eliminates any excuses not to exercise.
