    Hi There,

    In December\Jan 2006\07 i will be traveling to Cambodia and Vietman
    with some friends for 3 weeks. We are all chomping at the bit and while im bored at work counting down the days, i was wondering which will be the best way to spend 3 weeks in Cambodia and Vietam. We obviously dont want to rush through everywhere but would like to see as many beautiful places as possible.

    Any tips on the above and how to get around once we there would be great.

    Thanks Gary

    ps: this site rocks!

    Hi Gazza,

    Welcome to Travelfish, and glad to hear you like the site!

    3 weeks for Cambodia and Vietnam isn't all that long. You'd need at least a week in Cambodia to see at a minimum Angkor Wat and Phnom Penh, leaving you two weeks in Vietnam.

    I'm not sure where you're starting, so for convenience I'll start you at Angkor...

    Angkor (Siem Reap)->Battambang (by boat)
    Battambang->Phnom Penh (by bus)
    Phnom Penh->Chau Doc (by boat)
    Chau Doc->Can Tho (by bus)
    Can Tho->Saigon( by bus)
    Saigon-> Mui Ne(by bus)
    Mui Ne->Nha Trang (by bus)
    Nha Trang->Hoi An(by bus)
    Hoi An-Da Nang(by bus)

    So while you're only covering half of Vietnam, you're still getting to see Angkor, laid back Battambang, Phnom Penh, then down the Mekong river to Chau Doc and Can Tho for the Delta experience, Mui Ne and Nha Trang for beaches, Hoi An for well, Hoi An! and then to Da Nang where there is an airport and you can leave.

    Bear in mind Vietnam is BIG. For instance to travel by bus from Nha Trang to Hoi An takes close to a full day...

    Hope the above helps getting the planning underway...

    Phnom Penh
