Study trip to Silk Road (27 Apr. - 11 May 11)
- This looks like a pretty cool trip. If anyone is interested, I can
forward you further information--I assume that places will go to Siam
Society members first, but we are members and I don't know if we can
help get you on board if you are interested.
The cost is a bit much for most people, but it looks like an
incredible experience. The flyer that was attached indicated that the
trip planned to visit Urumqi, Kashgar, Taklamakan Desert, Kuche,
Turfan, Dunhuang, and more.
The price seems extremely reasonable given the itinerary, though it
still may be a bit much (THB140,000 is approximately USD4,700), and I
don't know if that includes airfare into China.
