In addition to Wembly’s recommendations, Maibeck is nice one michelin star place and their lunch time taster menu is very affordable.

was supposed to be going to vietnam for 2 weeks via Hong Kong (2 nights) tomorrow - but the whole virus thing is fucking with arrangements and don't really want to get trapped there (would be flying back through HK or Shanghai)

recommendations for Colombia? 2 week itinerary would be ideal

Who you flying with, what they said? Were off to Thailand end of march, looking at alternatives but at the moment obviously no advice but I'd be surprised if we won't be disrupted somehow.

Cheers wembly and rira, very helpful. Bunte Burger defo looks like one to check out. Why not visit between those dates you mentioned?

BA have pulled their flights.

Was due to go HK and Macau in Feb but cancelled the booking a couple of months ago because of the protests, glad I did now.

yeah BA have cancelled to Beijing/Shanghai. Virgin likely to follow suit. HK would be next on the list to cancel so not worth risking getting trapped over there (important work engagement 17th-19th i need to be back for)

Thinking of doing a week trip to either Sicily or Amalfi Coast, anyone done either and got any recommendations?
