    Hi,
    I am looking to spend a week in Laos and Cambodia in July 2013. I was thinking Luang Prabang and Siem Riep. My initial departure will be out of Bangkok. After I am planning on going to Koh Samui in Thailand. Since I only have a short period of time, I will fly to each location. Does this timeline seem doable? If so, do you have any suggestions whether I should visit Luang Prabang or Siem Riep first?

    If you have seven days and are flying all legs yes it is doable -- I'd recommend 4 days in Luang Prabang and 3 in Siem Reap. Be sure to look into flight costs as these are expensive legs you are suggesting. If too pricey I'd drop Luang Prabang (save it for another trip) and just go to Cambodia for a week.

    Cheers

    Ko Samui isn't that great. Used to be nice, but how it's really built up and overdeveloped. I will never go there again. I can understand choosing it because it has an airport and you have limited time, but the place is nothing special. Why not spend more time in Cambodia and do Koh Rong instead?
