March Ideas for Accommodations
Forest Floor Lodge, Vietnam
This 4-star lodge has the enviable location of being the only up scale accommodation inside Cat Tien National Park about 150 km north of Ho Chi Minh City. The guest rooms are either luxury tents built on elevated walkways or spacious lodge rooms with ensuite bathrooms and private verandas.
Staying inside the national park allows guests the unique opportunity to join tours with a park naturalist to do bird watching, gibbon trekking or go on a night safari– activities that are often scheduled outside the normal opening hours of the national park. This lodge is a great destination for families and active travelers.

Mandalay Hill Resort Hotel, Mandalay, Myanmar
This resort has a long history situated along the moat of the former Royal Palace. The hotel is a well-appreciated oasis after a long day exploring the rich culture of the former capital city of Burma.
