World Wide Travel
38 minutes ago
I was there in 2002 and 2012. The first time was during the SARS epidemic so there were not a lot of tourists anywhere in Asia, and most were Westerners. There was a lot more in 2012, with a lot of Chinese and Korean tourists. The biggest change was the addition of wooden stairs for some of the steeper rock stairways. Easier but not as challenging. I recommend touring early in the morning and relaxing in the afternoon. With 4 days, must sees are:

Angkor Wat - The most exotic place I have visited in the world
Angkor Thom - the tall Peminenakus (spelling is wrong) temple is my favorite place if you like climbing temples.
Ta Prohm for the trees
Bantea Srei for the carvings
Phnom Bakheng for the sunset (it will be crowded)

Enjoy but do not wear your self out.

Big deal. Drop in the bucket considering the over all cost of a vacation.

Weather is improving. It has been very hazy, but after a few rain showers, visibility is getting better, and there’s a lovely breeze. Could only see a couple lights on VG last night, but now have a clear view of Spanishtown, the Baths, Fallen Jerusalem, Round Rock, Ginger, Salt, Peter and Norman. Will know it’s really clear when I can see Anegada from my kitchen sink.

Marina Cay is closed, and there are virtually no sailboats around. But there are lots of boats ferrying workers to all the outer islands.

This is my first visit during hurricane season, but it’s lovely and quiet.

We were on STJ in April and had a blast! Snorkeling was on the way to recovery, but not like the past.
Plenty of Turtles and the water was awesome, but little shade.
East End was better than the North Shore
Did not go to Salt Pond area.

Here is a link to our trip report which has some underwater shots and some pics: Trip Report

There are more pictures and details in the blog which is linked at the end of the Trip Report.

No matter what you will be in blue water and life is good.
And if you have any free time consider a little volunteer work with the Friends on the National Park.
I am sure there is still plenty to do.

Have a great time.

I sent them a message, about two weeks ago on Facebook, and they indicated that they were still working with the land owner but would not be open in November/December when we are there. We too are bummed as we always stopped and had a good time there.

First you have to go to your ticket factory account and do your new date first, then you put the code into your signature in your profile.

We eat a lot of pasta, but have gotten away from traditional tomato sauces! I found the NYT's piece....some of the comments are funny because people just HAVE TO add to her recipe, ha!. I'll try this one following her recipe, very simple, just don't walk away from the sauce!

Hi, So it has been a while but here are the restaurants we ate at and where and overall impressions

St George - Dinner at Carib Sushi: this was a really good meal and pretty reasonable price wise, will be even better for Americans with the better conversion
Tyrell bay, Dinner at Slip Way: This was a pleasant surprise! Gastronomical experience right on the water, great service and atmosphere as well. Highly recommended!
Petit St Vincent - Dinner at the restaurant at the beach (there is another fancier restaurant but not sure as to restrictions for yachts) the beach restaurantt was really nice, perfect location scenery. it was slow so we had literally 3 servers hanging around replacing bears, drinks, etc. Great experience. Expensive though!
Tyrell Bay, Lazy turtle, Fun casual restaurant, great pizza and good value, highly recommended
Grenada - Dinner at Aquarium: I was pretty tired and there may have been a few too many wobbly pops, so my recollection was that the food took really long to get to us, the fish was okay, the atmosphere and general seeting very nice and right on the beach. would be nice for a sunset dinner
Kalinago - I guess we didn't follow the advice given to us. We had other options but after a hectic packed week, tests and studying, we decided to take it easy and eat on the beach right on the hotel. Overall impressions. okay, expensive.

btw, I though Kalaningo was a great value stay if you are looking for a place to stay before or after cruise, great beach, rooms were basic but clean and all looking on to the beach. Also if you stay here there is a little shack beach bar called La Plywood on the north side of the beach that had really good fish tacos. great place to hang out and enjoy some beverages as an alternative to the hotel bar (which was pretty dead)

We’ve booked the 441 cat for 4 couples. Grenada next year. Hoping it’ll be big enough? 4 cabins 4 heads & newer boat. We’re stressed about the small refrigerator but that might mean we go out to dinner more:)

You should revisit this thread and ask the question again right after the first of the year. I am quite sure there will be quite a few more opti9ns available that people can share with you.

Map,

We have a one bedroom unit located in the Point Pleasant complex. It's on the east end of St Thomas about 5 minutes from Red Hook and all the fun to be had there. Along with the ferry to St. John. Coki Beach is just across the bay, Lindquist Beach is a stones throw away and Sapphire as well. You just can't be beat the view and the breezes from our balcony up on the top of the hill! There is a restaurant on site and three pools to enjoy.

PM me and I can send you the website and our VRBO listing number!! I have contacts for a variety other units available in the complex for them as well.
