    Thanks for all the suggestions on my overly ambitious itinerary, I have made some of the reccomended changes.

    Is this doable?

    That looks more sensible.
    Whatever itinerary you make, try to stay flexible and stay able to change according to how you feel.

    two comments:
    day 3: Rolous group is not that big and is at the most a half day trip. The temples themselve also aren't that big. I haven't been to Kampong Khleang but this should be an easy day. Try to fit in the museum in Siem Reap. It's not well known by many but really worth it for an afternoon such at day 3.

    day 5: Phnom Kulen is a bit far so make the most of it and make this a full day trip and move the city tour to another day (day 3?). Phnom Kulen has beautiful scenery, the river with 1000 lingas, a waterfall and Srah Damrei (which I highly recommend) and some other smaller sites spread out over the mountain. Would be a shame if you go this far and rush it to get back for a city tour. This could be a great day to combine nature, temples and relaxation.
